[nggallery id=562]Noel Gyger reports. Weather has been cooler than average with some rain. Most of the rivers are now fishable. The Skeena River has been dropping since July 1 and is fishable.
Lots of anglers are out on the water. There should be good numbers of Chinook (King)
Salmon migrating up river to spawn in their native waters. There are lots of jet boats
fishing on the mainstem Skeena. Sockeye fishing has begun. Anglers are fishing at
Ferry Island and across from the Copper River. The Kalum River is dropping and in
very good shape. The boat ramps are starting to fill. The Zymoetz (Copper) River is
dropping and in very good shape. Chinook should be coming in. Kitimat River: Is a very
busy place. 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. Prince Rupert: I have reports of good
Chinook and Coho 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: Lots of fish in the Alley. The water is still high. Such a great place and really worth
the drive. If you haven’t stayed up there before check out the cabins at Fort Babine.
Cranberry River: The river is in decent shape and reports of some nice fish being
caught. Bulkley River is still high but dropping. The Telkwa is a lot lower and the Morice
is coming down a bit.
