Current LIVE Fishing Report can be read anytime 24-7 at: http://www.noelgyger.ca/current-fishing-reports.htm

Commentary: The extreme cold weather is gone. Spring Steelheading is here plus some excellent Trout fishing.

Skeena River: Water is fishable with some fair Steelhead and Trout fishing with both spin and fly rod. The spring run Steelhead should be in the river soon. Reg: all wild Steelhead everywhere in British Columbia are catch and release.

Kalum River: Both the lower and upper sections are in good shape. A good run of Steelhead is in the river now. I have reports of many fish caught.

Lakelse River: The water is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead, and Trout is fair.

Zymoetz (Copper) River: Water is low and in good shape. Fishing for Steelhead is fair. Upper end is closed for fishing...to protect the wintering over Steelhead. Facts: Last year we had a record run of summer-run Steelhead, let’s hope at least we have another good run this year. The fly rods work extremely well in this river.

Kitimat River: Trout fishing is fair. Steelheading starts around beginning of April.

Current LIVE Fishing Report can be read anytime 24-7 at: http://www.noelgyger.ca/current-fishing-reports.htm

Commentary: The extreme cold weather is gone, for now? It is warm enough to go fishing for Steelhead and Trout. If you go please be careful wading on the ice shelves and stay warm and safe.

Skeena River: Water is barely fishable. Lots of ice flow in the river . Some great Steelhead can still be had, plus some good Trout Fishing. Be careful walking on the ice near the edge of the river. Reg: all wild Steelhead everywhere in British Columbia are catch and release.

Kalum River: Both the lower and upper sections are in good shape. Watch for ice shelves in the deep pools. A good run of Steelhead is in the river now.

Lakelse River: The water is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead, Trout is fair.

Zymoetz (Copper) River: Water is full of floating ice, makes for tough fishing. Facts: Last year we had a record run of Steelhead, let’s hope at least we have another good run this year….so far so good.

Kitimat River: Trout fishing is fair where the river is free of ice.

Commentary: HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE We have had lots of snow and cold temperatures this winter, so fishing has been a difficult. Those who ventured out have been rewarded with some great winter Steelhead. If you go stay warm and dry and be safe.

Skeena River: Water is clean. Some great Steelhead can still be had. Plus some good Trout Fishing. Reg: all wild Steelhead everywhere in British Columbia are catch and release.

Kalum River: Both the lower and upper sections are in good shape. A good run of Steelhead is in the river now. I have reports of some good catches.

Lakelse River: The water is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead, Trout is fantastic.

Zymoetz (Copper) River: Water is in good shape but lots of snow to contend with. Too bad as the Steelhead fishing has been excellent. Facts: Last year we had a record run of Steelhead, let’s hope at least we have another good run this year….so far so good.

Kitimat River: Trout fishing is very good.

Skeena River: Water is clean. Some great Steelhead can still be had. Plus some good Trout Fishing. Reg: Coho fishing will end October 31st. Reg: all wild Steelhead everywhere in British Columbia are catch and release.

Kalum River: Both the lower and upper sections are in fishable shape. The lake is still stained with a little colour. It has been cleaning a little bit each day. A good run of Steelhead is in the river now. I have reports of some good catches.

Lakelse River: The water is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead, Trout is fantastic.

Zymoetz (Copper) River: Water really come up and is borderline fishable now. Some would say NOT fishable. Too bad as the Steelhead fishing has been excellent. Facts: Last year we had a record run of Steelhead, let’s hope at least we have another good run this year. The fly rods work extremely well in this river.

Kitimat River: Fishing for Coho closes today October 31, 2011. All that is left to do now is fish for local Trout.

Lakes - Smithers: Lake fishing in the area is still very good. Fishing for rainbow trout and lake trout has been very productive.

Summary for Morice, Bulkley, Kispiox Rivers from Oscars Tackle Shop. Well fishing is not over yet but it does look more and more like Christmas out there. Fishing is still really good if you can deal with the colder weather. The water temperature has dropped a bit. We have reports of really nice fishing being caught on the Kispiox and on the Bulkley. Looking at the weather report we might get a little bit more snow & colder weather. Better go out there a few more times before it is all over for another year!

Current LIVE Fishing Report can be read anytime 24-7 at: http://www.noelgyger.ca/current-fishing-reports.htm

Skeena River: Water is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead and Coho is excellent. Reg: all wild Steelhead everywhere in British Columbia are catch and release. Reg: Coho fishing in the Skeena and Tribs will close on October 31st. Time to leave them alone and let them spawn in peace. Target Steelhead only…

Kalum River: Lower end is borderline fishable. The upper end has only about 4 inches of visibility in the water. The lake is colored. It is going to take quite awhile for the lake and river to totally clean out. Theory: Under these conditions the fish cannot tell the difference between debris to your terminal tackle. Fact: Coho and Steelhead are coming in now! Even in these tough conditions guides are still catching good numbers of Steelhead and Coho. I guess it is because, they really know their stuff.

Lakelse River: The water is dropping and very clean. Coho are coming in now but NOT in huge numbers. This is 'prime-time' for Coho but the fish just are not there in any good numbers.

Zymoetz (Copper) River: Water is in very good shape. Steelhead fishing is outstanding. I have many reports of good catches. Facts: Last year we had a record run of Steelhead, let’s hope at least we have another good run this year. The fly rods work extremely well in this river.

Kitimat River: Kitimat River has dropped and is in good shape. The main run is over, so anglers must target holding fish. The challenge will be to figure out the best times and tackle to catch them. Best time: Early mornings and evenings are usually the best times. Best tackle: spoons, hot shots, jigs, spinners, float-fishing or bottom-bouncing roe are some of the most effective methods but on any given day one, none or all may work. BTW - fly fishing works also. Coho fishing in this very low, clear water is a challenge. The expectations for the Kitimat River in the coming weeks will be 'Big Water' as we can expect our typical fall rain and 'Big Coho' as we expect to see more and more of what we locals call the 'Northerns'. We can also expect to see some Coho starting to change to their spawning colours but we can expect to see some silver that the Coho Salmon are known for.

Kasiks River: Is very low making it difficult to travel very far up river by jet boat. The rain we had today should bring up the water levels. Fair numbers of Coho are in the river now but most have been pushed to the very top pools due the heavy rains we had last week. This is the first river to go out of shape from rain but is the first river to come back into shape once the rain stops. Sometimes, when the rain stops you can see the river cleaning right in front of you. Tip: Don’t fish for them unless you see them rolling.

Exchamsiks River: Water in good shape but the Coho are very high up in the system. Just about impossible to reach them now with jet boat. Heli may be the only way now.

Exstew River: is clean Coho are coming in. How to: This is one of the best rivers in the world to fly fish for Coho...but first conditions must be perfect. This river is usually colored up and fishing is not that good. Timing is everything. Time to go now before the water colours up.

Douglas Channel: NOTICE: DFO closes recreational halibut fishery as of Sept. 5. The Douglas Channel is still producing some Coho but it is a situation of being in the right place at the right time. Most of the Coho will be migrating to their spawning rivers but can still be caught by the Saltwater anglers. We also received reports of Bottomfish still being caught further down the Douglas Channel. Weather conditions will start to be more of a factor but fishing for Coho and Bottomfish in the Douglas Channel can still be very productive. Dungeness Crab trapping this time of year is usually very good as the Crab are stacking up at the river/creek mouths expecting a feed of dead spawned out salmon.

Prince Rupert: Coho fishing winding up in the ocean and fall is upon us, there are still lots of opportunities to take advantage of the superb prawning and crabbing that is available right in the Prince Rupert Harbour. So don’t put that gear away just yet. While you wait for your traps to fill up try your hand at Trolling for the Residential Winter Chinook that frequent our waters.

Lakes - Smithers: Lake fishing in the area is still very good. Fishing for rainbow trout and lake trout has been very productive.

Morice River: The Morice is still high but clear. Fishing well!

Bulkley River: is still a bit high but the water is clear. Big fish are being caught. Lots of fun.

Kispiox River: Borderline fishable yesterday at the bottom. Better higher up. Some fish caught. Busy place....

Babine River: Babine is dropping bit by bit. Coho’s and Steelhead are being caught.

Babine Lake: Babine Lake is still producing lots of fish. The limit has been increased to 4 fish on the lake.
NOTE: Don’t forget that it is September 1st, and on most rivers you will now need your classified waters stamp and regardless if you are targeting them or not.

Skeena River: The river is fishing very good for Steelhead and Coho around the Terrace area. My friends and I fished on the Skeena yesterday for Steelhead and Coho. We did great, although our land-lose ratio was not very good. We went 6 for 16....means we hooked a total of 16 fish. Lost 10 and landed 6 of which 2 were Coho and 4 Steelhead. I'll try and cut a video but not sure if I got enough good footage. The weather today was excellent, mostly sunny and no wind. Water had a tint of colour but the fish did not seem to care and keep attacking our tackle. We also landed a bunch of Dolly Varden Char...or Bull Trout. It was just a wonderful day. Hope to do it again soon. Reg: all wild Steelhead everywhere in British Columbia are catch and release.

Kalum River: Lower end is still high but some would say borderline fishable now. The upper end is dropping and is borderline fishable. The lake is colored. It is going to take quite awhile for the lake and river to totally clean out. Theory: Under these conditions the fish cannot tell the difference between debris to your terminal tackle. Fact: Coho and Steelhead are coming in now! How to: This is a good river to float fish a Pink Worm or Gooey Bob.

Bulkley River: The Bulkley River is ''fishing''. 2-3 feet of visibility. Fish tight to shore and light..... It is snowing at higher elevations so the river could come up again in a flash.... if it warms up.

Smithers, Terrace, Kitimat, Prince Rupert and Meziadin North

Go here for LIVE Fishing Report http://www.noelgyger.ca/current-fishing-reports.htm

Skeena River: The whole river and dirty and really not fishable. Kalum River is dumping a whole bunch of mud into the Skeena. Reg: all wild Steelhead everywhere in British Columbia are catch and release. Good chance to catch both Steelhead and Coho (Silver) Salmon on the same day.

Kalum River: Lower end is really high an dirty. Lots of debris suspended in the water so fishing is difficult. Also new trees hanging up in the river everywhere. Theory: Under these conditions the fish cannot tell the difference between debris to your terminal tackle. Upper end is probably dirty also. The lake is dirty. It is going to take quite awhile for this river to clean out.

Lakelse River: The water is dropping and very clean. Coho are coming in now but NOT in huge numbers. This is ''prime-time'' for Coho but the fish just are not there in any good numbers. Pinks are in good numbers and most are spawning everywhere. The Bears and the Birds are having a feast.

Zymoetz (Copper) River: Water is blown out, just too much rain. Lower end is Copper Colour. Facts: Last year we had a record run of Steelhead, lets hope at least we have another good run this year.

Morice River: The Morice is still in excellent shape and it is dropping. Again, some Steelheads are being caught on the Morice. Fishing is not very consistent. Good for a day or two than very poor.... Fishing should improve as water levels drop....

Bulkley River: The Bulkley above the Telkwa is still in good shape. Below the Telkwa visibility is 1-2 feet.... Lots of rain in the mountains..... Beware of a big grizzly bear between Telkwa and Smithers close to the ''dump''.

Kispiox River: The Kispiox is high again.... If the weather gods cooperate it should be fishing great in a day or two again.... Fishing was so good over the last few days.... Big fish.

Babine River: Babine is dropping bit by bit. Cohos and Steelhead are being caught.

Babine Lake: Babine Lake is still producing lots of fish. The limit has been increased to 4 fish on the lake.

Weekly Fishing Reports (Smithers, Terrace, Kitimat, Prince Rupert and Meziadin North)

Noel Gyger
June 26, to July 3, 2011

Dear Fishing Friends:

SUMMARY: Most rivers are now fishable, some only borderline.
The Skeena River has been dropping since June 25 and is now fishable. There should be good numbers of Chinook (King) Salmon migrating up river to spawn in their native waters. Sockeye http://www.noelgyger.ca/H2O/Non-Tidal/TyeeTestFishery/Charts/SkeenaSockeyeDays.pdf fishing has started. Anglers are fishing at Ferry Island.
The Kalum River is high but in good shape. The boat ramps are starting to fill.
The Zymoetz (Copper) River is high but fishable, Chinook should be coming in.
Kitimat River: Fishing for Chinook has been slow for some. The fishing guides have been doing well. The water is coming down and the fish are in.
Douglas Channel: I have reports of Chinook landed “out front” in the bay but it has been slow.
Prince Rupert: I have reports of good Chinook fishing. Bottom fish and Crab have been good also. Check the full report for details fishing the Chatham Sound area near Prince Rupert.
Meziadin: Marvin Reid reports the fishing at Meziadin has been awesome. There has been some excellent Dolly Varden being landed, along with a few Rainbows.
Smithers area: Most lakes, although higher than normal, are producing nice Char, Dollies and Rainbows. Rainbow Alley is still high and fishing is a bit slow. There are a few mayfly hatches happening at times. Minnow pattern is almost over now. Cranberry River is fishing well.
Bulkley River is high and dirty but starting to clean.
Kispiox River is fishing well.

This week reports came from Almudena Miles, Andreas Handl, Dustin Kovacvich, Andrew Rushton, Tracey Hittel, Marvin Reid and Steve Hidber. Thank you to the fishing guides and others who sent reports and photos. It is very much appreciated!

River Reports

Skeena River has been dropping since June 25 and is now fishable. There should be good numbers of Chinook (King) Salmon migrating up river to spawn in their native waters. I took a drive around town and saw a lot of boats on trailers. Sockeye http://www.noelgyger.ca/H2O/Non-Tidal/TyeeTestFishery/Charts/SkeenaSockeyeDays.pdf fishing has started and I saw a few anglers at Ferry Island. All the fish will be bright silver so get out there and try your luck. More and more people are coming to our area to enjoy this fishery. News: The Sockeye run on the Skeena is predicted to be low this year. The first of the run is in the river now http://www.noelgyger.ca/H2O/Non-Tidal/TyeeTestFishery/Charts/SkeenaSockeyeDays.pdf. Reg: Sockeye limit: 2 per day. 0 per day from a boundary sign on the north bank of the Skeena River 100m upstream of the confluence with the Kitwanga River downstream to Mill Creek.

Check out the Skeena Tyee Test Fishery Chart for Chinook here:
http://www.noelgyger.ca/H2O/Non-Tidal/TyeeTestFishery/Charts/SkeenaChinookDays.pdf

Kalum River is high but in good shape. A few anglers are heading out to try their luck fishing for Chinook (King) Salmon. A few Chinook are being caught in the lower section only. Reg: After July 1 a person may retain one big Chinook per day below the lower canyon. Limit is actually 4 per day, only 1 over 65 cm. The record 85-pound (if my memory is correct) Chinook was landed by Gordy McDonald of Terrace, BC. It was landed in circa May 1985. Caution: Jet boaters please be careful, there are new channels and lots of trees have fallen into the river. How to: This is a good river to float fish a Pink Worm or Gooey Bob. I suggest the fishing rod be a GLoomis STR 1265c/10’6” MED-HEAVY Moderate Action (GL 2 8-17lb – 3/8 to 1 oz.). Reel Shimano Calcutta (400B) filled with 20lb test Maxima mono. Gibbs makes some great floats. Be sure to use a Gamakatsu hook.

Lakelse River is in good shape. Chinook will be coming into the lower end. Where: The bridge on the lower end is a popular spot to fish for Chinook. Camping: There is a rough forestry campsite close to the bridge. Tip: Fishing off of the bridge with a marabou jig is the most popular method, so is a Hot-shot or Kwikfish plug. Reg: Fly fishing only between Lakelse Lake and CNR bridge, Mar 1-May 31. I have reports that fly fishing for Cutthroat, Dolly and Rainbows in the upper end is very good right now. Steelhead should not be targeted.

Zymoetz (Copper) River is high but fishable. Chinook should be coming in. Regs: Fishing for Chinook is allowed until July 23. Fly fishing suggestion: Kamloops Dragon fly rod, 10’ Kamloops fly reel, AFTMA #8line. Backing Dragon Fly “Bright Orange” 30lb, 150 yard spool. Fly line SA Sharkskin Steelhead WF-8-F.

Kitimat River Fishing for Chinook has been slow for some. The fishing guides have been doing well. The water is coming down and the fish are in. The drift boaters love to “pull plugs”. The most popular plugs are the Hot-Shot and Kwikfish made by Luhr Jensen. Reminder: Bait ban, May 15 - August 31.

Kitimat Estuary Andreas Handl reports the fishing in the lower tidal section is excellent right now.
Chinook Salmon are running in strong numbers. For more detail and photos see Andreas’ full report below…

Kasiks River is closed for Chinook (King) Salmon above the highway 16 bridge. Tip: Below the highway bridge can be a good spot to fish for Chinook when conditions are right. That is when the Kasiks River is cleaner than the mainstem Skeena. This is the time of year when the Chinook start migrating up the Skeena River. This is the first river to go out of shape from rain but is the first river to come back into shape once the rain stops. Sometimes, when the rain stops you can see the river cleaning right in front of you.

Exchamsiks River is closed for Chinook (King) Salmon above the highway 16 bridge. Tip: Below the highway bridge can be a good spot to fish for Chinook when conditions are right. That is when the Exchamsiks River is cleaner than the mainstem Skeena. This is the time of year when the Chinook start migrating up the Skeena River.

Cranberry River The river is in decent shape and reports of some nice fish being caught.

Kispiox River Out of all our 'local' rivers the Kispiox is probably the go to river at the moment. The water is still high for this time of year. Reports of nice Chinook catches there also.

Bulkley River is still high and dirty and difficult to fish. Reports of the Morice River starting to clear up - which would really help clean up the Bulkley. Some fish being caught in the Houston area. Wading with quality Simms waders and accessories is the way to go.

Douglas Channel I have reports of a few Chinook being landed “out front” in the bay. The Chinook are on their way into the Kitimat River. Boaters will soon be able to limit out for both Halibut and Chinook consistently. Crab and Prawns are being landed on a regular basis. Suggestion: To make it very easy to pull your Crab or Prawn traps use an Ace Line Hauler.

Prince Rupert I have reports of some good Chinook fishing. Fishing for all bottom fish including Halibut is doing well. Tip: When trolling for Chinook try a SplitKing Lure. Jeff Carlson of BC Style Fishing Charters reports good success with this lure. I have reports of limits of Dungeness Crab and Prawns. Tip: Use the Ace Line Hauler to pull your traps. Reg: When travelling with Crab you must leave the shell on. Bottom fish and Crab remain very good, as usual.

Chatham Sound area OceanWild Nature Expeditions reports Halibut is good especially in Work and Steamer Channel. Springs are moderate to good (45lbs) in area known as Chicken Flats. Some days better than others but no complaints. See the report below….

Lakes – Smithers Most lakes, although higher than normal, are producing nice char, dollies and rainbow.
Report from Steve Hidber and the staff at Oscar’s Source for Adventure in Smithers.

Rainbow Alley The Alley is still high and fishing is a bit slow. There are a few mayfly hatches happening at times. Minnow pattern is almost over now. Report from Steve Hidber and the staff at Oscar’s Source for Adventure in Smithers.

Lakes - Meziadin The fishing at Meziadin has been awesome. There has been some excellent Dolly Varden being landed, along with a few Rainbows. For more detail and directions how to get to some of these beautiful wilderness Lakes check out Marvin Reid’s full report and photos below…
