Noel Gyger reports: The weather has been a mixed bag of sun, rain and wind. Both upper and lower sections of Kalum River are high but in good shape. The first Chinook are in the river now. This time of year I like to remind folks of the great possibilities of angling for both Steelhead and Chinook (King) Salmon on the same day. The mainstem Skeena River is too dirty and not fishable. A good place to fish is at the clean seams where the tributary rivers flow into the Skeena. The Zymoetz (Copper) River is too dirty to fish. The Chinook are coming into the Kitimat River now.
The Skeena is too dirty and not fishable. Fishing the clean seams of the tributary rivers is also a good idea. The Kalum River Is high and in good shape. Good numbers of Steelhead are in the river now. Spring runs of Steelhead are still coming in with the higher water. Fishing for them with fly or spin tackle works well. Fresh early run Chinook (King) Salmon are in the river now. The Zymoetz (Copper) River is too dirty to fish. The Kitimat River has been low and clean this week which has provided excellent steelhead fishing conditions all week.
