Noel Gyger reports. Weather has improved with less heavy rain. Even though it is still raining off and on and heavy at times, most of the rain is staying in the mountains as snow. Some of the local mountains have received a fresh dusting of snow. This is a beautiful time of year as the leaves are turning their brilliant fall colors. Most rivers have come back into fishable shape since the heavy rain from last weekend. The Skeena River has been dropping since mid week. Steelhead fishing in the main stem Skeena has slowed a little bit as most of the summer-run Steelhead have already gone through. The lower end, China Bar area, is still fishing well for Steelhead and Coho (Silver) Salmon. The Skeena tributaries and isolated Coastal Rivers are fishing well for Coho, the runs are peaking.

The â€œnorthern-Cohoâ€™sâ€ are here! Weâ€™ve had a very good run of Coho this year. Both spinning, conventional, Spey fly fishing and single hand fly fishing outfits are working well. The Zymoetz (Copper) River is clean and fishing â€œgoodâ€ for Steelhead. The Kalum is fishing only â€œfairâ€ for Steelhead and Coho as the water is high.
