Winter Steelheading - GREAT

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

Noel Gyger January 30 to February 6, 2011

Dear Fishing Friends:

SUMMARY: We had a lot of rain during the week but most rivers held their shape.

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 came up a little bit but is still in good shape.

Zymoetz (Copper) River is coloured up and fishing for Steelhead is slow. The upper section closed for fishing on January 1st.

Lakelse River is in fair shape and fishing for Steelhead and Trout should be Ok now since the weather warmed up. Lake ice fishing has started and the fishing is good. Beware of thin ice!

Kitimat River: Early this week we endured sub zero temperatures and the onslaught on Ice Rain. Where we parked our vehicles for a couple hours, we had to chip the ice off our windshields. Mid week’s warmer temperatures combined with clean river conditions produced good numbers on Trout. The weather warmed up and we received some rain the river was high and dirty at the time of this Report. (Friday)

Douglas Channel; The colder temperatures and the Ice Rain deterred boaters from venturing out. Warmer temperatures are forecast for the weekend which may encourage some boaters to venture. Check out the Ron Wakita report below.

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!"

Yours sincerely, Noel F. Gyger
