Noel Gyger reports. Weather has fair all week. The rain we had mostly stayed in the mountains as snow. Fishing for Steelhead, Coho, Cutthroat Trout, Bull Trout and Dolly Varden Char using fly, spin and conventional gear was good. The Skeena River and most of the tributaries are in good shape. The Kalum River is good shape and fishing for Steelhead and Coho is fantastic. The Kitimat River is similar to most rivers in the NorthWest remained high and dirty for most of the week but is looking like it will be cleanenough to fish by this weekend barring anymore rain. Some anglers ventured out to the upper Kitimat or to the mouths of the cleaner tributaries and were catching the oddCoho. Check out the Ron Wakita report below. Prince Rupert had strong winds and heavy rainfall this past week there has been no fishing report to issue, although some diehard fishermen have taken to the water for a fresh feed of Crab. The Bulkley River water is high from all the recent rains but it is clearing up quickly. It has about two feet of visibility and most anglers are hooking into a couple fish a day. Water is high but fishable. The Telkwa is causing most of the coloring, as usual, and the upper river is pretty clear. Fishing has done well. The nights have been getting cooler and that will help clear up the rivers. It is nice to have some new water in the river and as it clears the fishing should improve. The Morice River water is quite high but with about three feet of visibility it is more than good enough for fishing. Fish are in the river and Steelheading has done well. The Zymoetz (Copper) River is clean enough to fish and I have many reports of some great Steelhead catches with both fly and spin rods. This week guide reports came from Ron Wakita, Andrew Rushton and Gill McKean. Thank you to all of the fishing guides who sent reports and photos. It is very much appreciated!
