[nggallery id=565]Noel Gyger reports. Weather cool, cloudy with a little rain. Water levels are stable and should be dropping soon. Update: Skeena rising, Kitimat dropping. Fishing in the Kitimat and Terrace area is fair. Just need a good run of fish to catch them.
Water level is rising again but it is still fishable. Dirty water is coming in from the Copper River. There should be good numbers of Chinook (King) Salmon migrating up river to spawn in their native waters. There are lots of jet boats in town to fish. The boat ramps are filling up. Govt. launch is mostly full, the one across the Kalum River has space. Where: Anglers have started to fish a local spot called “Cottonwoods”. Sockeye fishing has begun. Where: There are anglers fishing at Ferry Island. Sockeye is the main target but some of the plunkers are hoping for a big Chinook or even a small “Jack” Spring. All the fish will be bright silver so get out there and try your luck. More and more people are coming to our area to enjoy this fishery. News: The Sockeye run on the Skeena is predicted to be low this year but chart below shows a little above average run has come in so far. The first of the run is in the river now. Reg: Sockeye limit: 2 per day. 0 per day from a boundary sign on the north bank of the Skeena River 100m upstream of the confluence with the Kitwanga River downstream to Mill Creek.
