Terrace, BC Tributaries Blown-out.

Posted on June 8th, 2009

noel_gyger_graphic1Noel Gyger reports: The average daytime temperature in Terrace is 19C.  The daytime temperatures have been extremely high all week (over 25C.), causing lots of snow melt to come off the mountains.   We are near flood condition on the Skeena River.  Some lower areas have already flooded.  This report is more of a flooding report than a fishing report.  It is normal for high water in the Skeena this time of year but “nobody” likes it this high.   Although we can still fish in the isolated wilderness rivers the Skeena River is un-fishable now.  Fishing in high water is not necessarily a bad thing. I’ve had some of my best fishing in high water although the water must be clean.   The fish would be holding in the slow moving water on the corners.   The Kalum River is very high but still fairly clean.   Kitimat River is very high and really not fishable.   Lake fishing is still available plus ocean out of the ports of Kitimat and Prince Rupert.   The Skeena water heights may have stabilized today and maybe we have seen the worst of it.   Hopefully the water will continue to drop but it will depend on the weather (lower daytime temperatures and no heavy rain). We have many options here for fishing…but…due to the fact that the Skeena has flooded I must state, in general, the fishing is poor.
