Noel Gyger reports. Weather has been fair during the week but windy at times. The air is fresh with the smell of spring. Fishing for Steelhead, Cutthroat Trout, and Dolly Varden Char is GOOD using both fly, spin and conventional gear. The Chinook (King) Salmon will be here any day now. The water is at normal heights for this time of year. The Skeena River has been dropping all week and fishing for Steelhead and Trout is GOOD. There is a possibility to hook a Chinook (King) Salmon also. The lower end of the Zymoetz (Copper) River is fishing GOOD for Steelhead and Trout. The Kalum River is fishing EXCELLENT for Steelhead. I have had numerous reports of fantastic fishing with both spin, conventional and fly rods (spey and single hand). The Kitimat River is low and fishing is EXCELLENT for Cutthroat Trout. Steelhead are being caught also and should improve steadily as the month goes on. We really need a bump in water heights. Check out the Ron Wakita report below. Winter Chinook fishing in the Kitimat Harbour and Douglas Channel is POOR right now and is weather dependent. Crab (Dungeness and King) fishing is EXCELLENT. Ocean Chinook and Halibut fishing in Prince Rupert is GOOD when the weather is good. Check out the Jeff Carlson report below. The Smithers anglers are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Bulkley River summer-run Steelhead.
