Noel Gyger reports. Winter is closing in fast. Temperatures are getting colder. There is snow on the ground and lots in the mountains. Many of us who like to use our jet-boats are trying to get out as much as possible as we know we will have to put them away soon. Steelhead are the only target fish now along with the smaller resident and sea-run Cutthroat Trout, Dolly Varden Char, Bull Trout and White Fish in rivers. There is ocean Winter Chinook fishery out of Kitimat and Prince Rupert starting now but is weather dependent. When out in the ocean why donâ€™t you drop a Prawn or Crab trap. The Kalum River Coho are slowly dying off after spawning and the Steelhead are easier to catch. I have received many reports of â€œgoodâ€ Steelhead fishing now. I have a report that the Zymoetz (Copper) River is fishing â€œexcellentâ€ for Steelhead using both spin and fly gear. River fishing for Cutthroat Trout in the Kitimat River is â€œgoodâ€ and depends on the weather. Check out the Ron Wakita report below for local Cutthroat Trout and winter springs in the harbour plus some excellent Crabbing.
