Winter Steelheading continues...despite cooler weather

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

Noel Gyger January 23 to January 30, 2011

Dear Fishing Friends:

SUMMARY: Heavy rain at the beginning of the week did not hurt the river conditions as most of it stayed in the mountains as snow. Clear and colder on the weekend.

Skeena River is in good shape but full of ice flows and frozen over in spots. Be very careful walking on the ice ledges! There may be some Steelhead wintering over in some locations. The Trout and Dolly Varden Char are available year round.

Kalum River is low and in good shape and fishing for Steelhead is good.

Zymoetz (Copper) River is in fair shape with lots of ice flows and ice ledges. If you can find open water the Steelhead fishing should be pretty good. The upper section closed for fishing on January 1st.

Lakelse River is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead and Trout should be Ok. Lake ice fishing has started and the fishing is good. Beware of thin ice! Sorry there is no fishing report from Ron Wakita as he is feeling a little under the weather.

Prince Rupert has fantastic Winter Chinook fishing, weather depending. If you would like to book a comfortable, warm Charter Boat for Winter Chinook and Dungeness Crab in Kitimat or Prince Rupert please contact me anytime.

There is a New! guiding and fishing destination for 2011 being developed in the far northwest of BC and Alaska Rivers where you can: "fly fish for and catch salmon, steelhead and trout until your arms will feel like they will fall off!" Click on the Fishing Report BOOKMARK "Gary Miltenberger - New Destination Stikine River plus a dozen more rivers" BOOKING NOW for 2011 contact Noel Gyger 250-635-2568 for more information.


Yours sincerely, Noel F. Gyger
