Weekly Fishing Report for Smithers, Terrace, Kitimat and Prince Rupert, BC.

Posted on March 30th, 2010

noel_gyger_graphicNoel Gyger reports.  Weather has been fair during the week but very windy on the weekend.  More and more anglers are fishing for Steelhead, Cutthroat Trout, and Dolly Varden Char using both fly, spin and conventional gear.  The talk is about catching that first Chinook (King) Salmon.  The water is at normal heights for this time of year and is coming up slowly which usually means good fishing conditions.  The Skeena river is coming up slowly and fishing for Steelhead and Trout is fair.  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 good for Steelhead.  The Kitimat River is in good shape and fishing fair for Cutthroat Trout.  The odd Steelhead is being caught also, more and more are coming in with every high tide.  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.  Winter 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 itching to fish for Steelhead. Jason Munday in Terrace reports good Steelhead and Dolly Varden Char fishing on the lower mainstem Skeena and Kalum Rivers.  Other rivers have good Trout Fishing.
