Terrace, BC fishing update.

Posted on July 4th, 2011

.

Here's a recent photo of a happy client, John Sartinsky, and Dustin Kovacvich of Nicholas Dean Lodge holding a 25 lb Chinook Salmon caught last week on the Kitimat River. John's wife Harriet woke up one morning in January and said that she wanted to catch a 20 lb salmon, and on her very first day, she landed a 35 lb salmon!

Noel Gyger reports.

Weather has been cooler than average with some rain. Most rivers are

now fishable, some only borderline. The Skeena River has been dropping since June

25 and is now fishable. There should be good numbers of Chinook (King) Salmon

migrating up river to spawn in their native waters. Sockeye fishing has started. Anglers

are fishing at Ferry Island. The Kalum River is high but in good shape. The boat ramps

are starting to fill. The Zymoetz (Copper) River is high but fishable, Chinook should be

coming in. Kitimat River: Fishing for Chinook has been slow for some. The fishing

guides have been doing well. The water is coming down and the fish are in. Douglas

Channel: I have reports of Chinook landed “out front” in the bay but it has been slow.

Prince Rupert: I have reports of good Chinook fishing. Bottom fish and Crab have been

good also. Check the full report for details fishing the Chatham Sound area near Prince

Rupert. Meziadin: Marvin Reid reports the fishing at Meziadin has been awesome.

There has been some excellent Dolly Varden being landed, along with a few Rainbows.

Smithers area: Most lakes, although higher than normal, are producing nice Char,

Dollies and Rainbows. Rainbow Alley is still high and fishing is a bit slow. There are a

few mayfly hatches happening at times. Minnow pattern is almost over now. Cranberry

River is fishing well. Bulkley River is high and dirty but starting to clean. Kispiox River is fishing well.
