Noel Gyger reports. Weather is extremely cold. Daytime highs of only minus 5-7 degrees C. Steelhead and Trout are the only species targeted now. It is just too cold for fishing, for most of us:-)) The Skeena River is in good shape. The Kalum River is in good shape. The Zymoetz (Copper) River is in good shape. The Lakelse River is in good shape. Sorry, no reports from Smithers. They must be frozen. Fishing would be GREAT if it was NOT so cold! The Kitimat River had clear blue skies and sunshine all week but there was a cold bite in the air with strong winds. The weather was very nice for this time of year providing you dressed with warm fleece. Douglas Channel; The sunny clear blue skies were accompanied with strong winds which discouraged most anglers from venturing out. Ferd Wuensche reports sneaking out for a bit on Wednesday and reports losing 2 Winter Chinook before the winds got too strong. Prince Rupert; As predicted, the Winter Chinook have arrived. For those fishermen who venture out looking for some action on the water, I have heard of many anglers catching their limit of Chinooks in the past several days, averaging from 5 to 25lbs. This week guide reports came from Ron Wakita, Ariel Kuppers, Tracey Hittel and Jeff Carlson.
