Terrace, BC Fishing Update.

Posted on September 2nd, 2010

[nggallery id=308]John Tracey Hittel reports. Halibut, Salmon, Crab and Steelhead. The past few weeks have kept us very busy and time to write a report has been non-existent. So with a few days off before the Irish flood the lodge with laughter, cheers, Lepricons and tight lines we are getting boats ready to go. We operate with 5 driftboats, 2 rafts, and 5 Jetboats accommodating 24 anglers per week.

Our tours these days have kept us on the Saltwater targeting Coho and Halibut and picture 1 is of the the “Cornsnake Crew”, these boys landed some nice Halibut and limited out in less than a couple hours. Experiencing the pull of a Halibut is something to try and the experience of pulling up Dungeness Crab traps for the evening feast is a nice touch to the day. The guys also spent a day on the Nass and landed many big Chinook and Wade said after his 5th Chinook, this is something you see in National Geographic! Need I say anything else.

Also attached are Jani and Hetsel the boys first trip to Canada and they wanted a fishing experience that brought them into small streams fishing for Salmon. Spending their entire lives on the motherland of Finland these guys were good fishermen and target Pike as a fish back home. We took the fellas into the sea and navigated rock gardens and sandbars into small Coho rivers with the waterfalls and rock cliffs as a back and foreground, see the entire trip photos in our Salmon gallery. Jani laughed as he hooked into his 3rd Coho in 15 minutes, this is the best place I have ever fished, I thought to myself, yes, me too!

Another group of guests arrived from Japan and these fellas wanted to Target Steelhead on the Skeena, and with the run at record levels the guys fought some large Steel as well many Coho, Sockeye and Pinks. Not to mention attached a sizeable Nass Chinook with big smiles.

I had to add this pic of Leroux Craven, this young fella is holding a fresh Skeena Coho and what make this trip so cool for me is that this guy is on a world tour of fishing, canoeing, exploring and off on a amazing adventure around the globe, hope all is well when you read this bud.

Another great part of my job is meeting the clients from around the world and Bish and Adelle are just another pair of Florida Keys locals, not to mention a fishing guide himself. Having a Gin Martini, with a hand stuffed, white cheddar cheese olive in the glass is a amazing taste after a hot day on the water. Attached are Bish and Guide Bark Bark, with a Skeena Steelhead.

With the fall season about to begin the trees are turning and the Steelhead are migrating into the tributaries of the Skeena, flyfishing for monster Steelhead begins and so we will be on the hunt for the next few months in search of the number one freshwater game fish, fish on!
