Noel Gyger reports. Winter is closing in fast. Temperatures are colder. There is snow on the ground and lots in the mountains. 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. The Kalum River has many spawning Coho scattered throughout the runs and fishing for Steelhead is difficult. Please try and avoid hooking spawning Coho as much as possible. 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.
