Noel Gyger reports. Temperatures near normal and a little rain. The rain is just what we needed. Fishing for Sockeye, Chum, Steelhead, Cutthroat Trout, Bull Trout and Dolly Varden Char using fly, spin and conventional gear has been fair. The Skeena Riverwas up then down this week but is still clean enough to fish. Sockeye fishing is good if you know the how and where to fish for them. Limit was lowered to 1 per day, 2 inpossession on August 23rd. Steelhead and Coho fishing is excellent. It is not uncommon to catch both Steelhead and Coho on the same day and throw in the odd Chum and Pink. The Kalum River is in good shape. Steelhead and Coho are coming in now. Kitimat River is fishing very well for Coho, especially after the bump of water we had. The Douglas Channel is producing excellent numbers of Halibut and Coho. The Harbour fishing is good. See New! Coho video clip below: Crab (Dungeness and King) fishing is fair. August is usually slow but the Crab you do trap are full of meat.
The Zymoetz (Copper) River has a little stain but clean enough to fish. Summer-run Steelhead are moving in now. Prince Rupert reports an excellent Coho fishery. Lots of Halibut following the Salmon.Meziadin Lake is fishing slow for Rainbow and Dollies. Bell Irving should start producing some excellent Steelhead fishing. Bulkley River. The rain has not affected the river too much. It is still nice and clear and fishing well. Lots of Pinks and Coho and Steelheading has done pretty good as well. Kispiox River finally got some rain. River has come up and has dirtied a little but is still fishable. Fishing has done well for some. Coho, Sockeye and Steelhead. The Morice River is still a designated area on evacuation alert and people are not allowed up there for recreational means. As far as I understand, no fishing access on the river at this time.
