Terrace, BC Tributary Update

Posted on April 27th, 2009

The photo of the week shows Noel Gyger and Rob Vodola with a nice Kalum River Steelhead landed on April 20th.  YES, I catch em, once in awhile!  Sometimes I think I have more fun watching other folks catch fish…just the old fishing guide in me coming out, I guess.  Photo by Carey Braun

Noel Gyger reports: The weather has been good with average day time temperatures and no rain after Tuesday. The rivers are on the rise as more snow melt comes down. Both upper and lower sections of Kalum River are in good shape.  The Skeena River Is too dirty to fish.  Fishing the clean seams of the tributary rivers is a good idea now.  The Kitimat Riveris still high from the heavy rain we received last weekend including Monday and the river level rose and was unfishable by Tuesday.  I logged the height of the river on Tuesday morning when the Kitimat Riverwas the highest it has been this Steelhead season.  I logged the height again Wednesday morning 23 hours later and the Kitimat Riverhad dropped 3 1/2 feet and was fishable.  When the river is high and dirty she is unfishable these conditions usually entice fresh, silver Steelhead into the Kitimat River.  When the river level drops and water clarity becomes fishable usually more fish have migrated into the system to be caught.  This observation evolved as anglers started to catch very nice Steelhead on Wednesday.  This is the case with most rivers in the North West.
