Noel Gyger reports. The weather has been good all week, not too hot. Since August 12th the Skeena has been quickly dropping to very low levels. Jet boaters be careful. Gravel bars are showing up everywhere. You donâ€™t want to hit one of them! Fishing for Sockeye, Coho, Pink and summer-run Steelhead on the Skeena River is fair. Spey, single hand fly rod and conventional gear are working well. The trick is to be on the right gravel bar and fish proper technique. This is when an experienced fishing guide comes in handy. The Chinook (King) Salmon fishery closed August 7th for another year in a zone from Lakelse River mouth upstream to the Skeena River Overpass (new Hwy 16 bridge) at Ferry Island. The Kalum River closed for Chinook at the same time. Coho and Steelhead are starting to come in now.
