  Noel Gyger Guided Fishing Adventures and Weekly fishing Report

  March 13 to 20, 2011

  FULL REPORT: http://www.noelgyger.ca/weekly-fishing-reports/mar-13-20_2011.pdf

 SUMMARY: Weather was excellent all week.  Lots of sun shine and warmer than average day time temperatures.  Fishing Guiding started on March 15th on the Kalum River.  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 in good shape and fishing for Steelhead is excellent.   Zymoetz (Copper) River is in fair shape 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 is fair.   Lake ice fishing is good.  Beware of thin ice!   Kitimat River is iced up and snowed in. This has caused the river to be reduced to narrow channels.  Despite these conditions, some anglers still went fishing.  The warmer weather will help the situation.  Trout fishing this week was excellent.   Douglas Channel; I have not heard anyone fishing the Douglas Channel at all this week but they will be heading out soon with the warmer weather.  Many anglers are upset about the current Halibut Policy.  The 2011 Halibut Season will close some time in the summer but DFO does not know when.  This makes it impossible for Saltwater Anglers to book holidays or days off to fish for Halibut.  This Conservative Halibut Policy is affecting all Recreation angler's ability to enjoy this Canadian resource especially folks who must travel long distances.  See Important Halibut Information in the FULL REPORT.   Prince Rupert:  With the beautiful weather were having it looks and sounds like this weekend should see lots of fisherman heading out for some fun on the water. Everybody is getting their boats dusted off and ready for another season. Can’t wait for the fishing reports to start rolling in. Check out the Jeff Carson report below.  If you would like to book a guided fishing trip on ocean and rivers please contact me Noel Gyger noel@noelgyger.ca anytime.

  Noel Gyger – Guided Fishing Adventures & Weekly Fishing Report

  Fishing update for Monday, March 7, 2011

 SUMMARY:  This is an extreme winter!  Very cold with lots of snow all week.  FULL report http://www.noelgyger.ca/weekly-fishing-reports/feb-27-mar-6_2011.pdf   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 but just too cold to fish now.   The Trout and Dolly Varden Char are available year round.    Kalum River is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead is excellent when it is not so cold.   Zymoetz (Copper) River is in fair shape and fishing for Steelhead is poor due to the freezing weather.  The upper section closed for fishing on January 1st.   Lakelse River is in fair shape and fishing for Steelhead and Trout is fair but too cold to fish now.   Lake ice fishing is good.  Cold weather does not seem to deter the ice fishermen.  Beware of thin ice!   Kitimat River; The weather in Kitimat started off very cold during the beginning of the week and was then followed by more snow.  Most anglers in Kitimat are getting tired of shoveling snow but the harsh reality is that it just has to be done in order to get out of the driveway.  For anglers it is even more challenging to access the Kitimat and other rivers in the North West.  Despite the weather some of Kitimat's hard core anglers managed to get out on the Kitimat River. Douglas Channel; Dorothy Green from MK Bay reports that MK Bay is having some major problems with their water lines freezing.  They are working on the problems but in this cold weather it has been an ordeal.  There is no fishing activity on the Douglas Channel due to the cold weather.  The Halibut issue is heating up.   Prince Rupert:  Sorry no report from Prince Rupert this week. Fishing reports for the Bulkley, Morice, Kispiox and Babine Rivers are in season only.   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 noel@noelgyger.ca anytime.  GOOD LUCK and GOOD FISHING! Yours sincerely, Noel F.

 Weekly Fishing Reports (Smithers, Terrace, Kitimat, Prince Rupert and Meziadin North) Noel Gyger February 20 to February 27, 2011

 Dear Fishing Friends:  SUMMARY:  Weather very cold all week.  Warmer 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 but just too cold to fish now.   The Trout and Dolly Varden Char are available year round. 

  Kalum River is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead is excellent when it is not so cold.   

  Zymoetz (Copper) River is in fair shape and fishing for Steelhead is poor due to the freezing weather.  The upper section closed for fishing on January 1st. 

  Lakelse River is in fair shape and fishing for Steelhead and Trout is fair but too cold to fish now.  Lake ice fishing is good.  Cold weather does not seem to deter the ice fishermen.   Beware of thin ice! 

  Kitimat River; Ariel Kuppers reports that the Kitimat River is iced up along the edges in the faster moving water and completely frozen over in the sections where the current is slower.  Ariel also reports -20 degree temperatures.  The only facts to report this week is that the Kitimat River is iced up and it is too cold to fish. 

  Douglas Channel; Dorothy from MK Bay reports cold temperatures and nasty winter conditions have discouraged even the Hard Core anglers such as Victor Lick.  Victor is as eager an angler as you will find in our area and he visited the marina and went home.  Halibut will open March 1st.

  Prince Rupert:  Sorry no report from Prince Rupert this week.  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 noel@noelgyger.ca anytime. 

  GOOD LUCK and GOOD FISHING!

 

Yours sincerely,    Noel F. Gyger

Skeena River - February 21st, 2011
supplied by: Noel Gyger Guided Fishing Adventures
RECORDED:    29 °   FISHING: Fair
http://www.noelgyger.ca Dear Fishing Friends: Weather OK at beginning of the week but now is too cold at minus12 degrees Celsius.   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 in good shape and fishing for Steelhead is excellent.   Zymoetz (Copper) River is in fair shape and fishing for Steelhead is slow.  Lots of ice flows on the weekend.  The upper section closed for fishing on January 1st.   Lakelse River is in fair shape and fishing for Steelhead and Trout is fair.   Lake ice fishing is fair.  Beware of thin ice!    Kitimat River provided good fishing opportunities early in the week.  Many Trout anglers were catching Trout in pretty good numbers.  By late week we received another "cold snap" and the edges of the shorelines have iced up which caused Trout fishing to be limited.

 Douglas Channel: Dorothy from MK Bay Marina reports there was no boat activity in the Douglas Channel consequently nothing to report.  Halibut will open March 1st.   Prince Rupert: On February 16th a pod of Killer Whales cruised though Prince Rupert Harbour, undoubtedly looking for a meal. It has been a good year for Winter Chinook fishing, so it’s not to surprising they show up in the harbour from time to time.   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 noel@noelgyger.ca anytime.   GOOD LUCK and GOOD FISHING! Yours sincerely, Noel F.

 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 noel@noelgyger.ca 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  GOOD LUCK and GOOD FISHING!

RECORDED:    40 °   FISHING: Good
The photo of the week shows Dan Berg and his dad Norris with a nice Kalum River Chinook (King) Salmon landed a couple of years ago in the spring.  The fish was quickly released after this photo was taken.  This photo reminds us these beautiful fish will be coming soon.  Have you booked your trip yet?  The Kalum River is unique to have such an early run.  Chinook and Steelhead caught on the same day is not uncommon. 

  Noel Gyger - WEEKLY FISHING REPORTS for Smithers, Terrace, Kitimat and Prince Rupert

February 21 to February 28, 2010

Number 162



Dear Fishing Friends:

  SUMMARY:  Weather is good but with scattered showers.  Temperatures have been a little above average.  More anglers are fishing for Cutthroat Trout, Dolly Varden Char and Steelhead using both fly, spin and conventional gear. The water is extremely low.  The fish are spooked so a stealthy approach is needed to catch them.  Using smaller terminal tackle is a good idea also.  The lower end of the Zymoetz (Copper) River is fishing good for Steelhead and Trout.  The Kalum River is fishing fair for Steelhead but you have to work hard to find them.  Trout fishing is slow.  It is mostly walk and wade as the water is too low for a jet boat.  The Kitimat River is in good shape and fishing fair for Cutthroat Trout.  The odd Steelhead is being caught also.  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. Winter ocean Chinook fishing in Prince Rupert is good when the weather is good.  Check out the Jeff Carlson report below. Lake ice fishing is slowing down in the Smithers area due to the warmer weather.  Check out the Cory Koenig report below. Jason Munday in Terrace reports a few Steelhead landed on the Kalum River.  Check out his report below.  The main stem Skeena River is getting some action for Steelhead.  There is a possibility to hook a Chinook also.  I tried a little Trout fishing myself.  Check out the video clip below. The fishing guides are preparing to start their season on March 15 on the Kalum River.  Guiding is allowed on the Kalum River from March 15 to October 15.  



February 25, 2010 One "New" clip posted on Video Clips:

Dustin Kovacvich, head guide for Nicholas Dean Lodge and I went fly fishing for Trout on a small Skeena River tributary on Wednesday, February 24, 2010.  Dustin caught a Bull Trout on his first cast...no kidding.  We hooked a half dozen fish in less than three hours.  If you want to learn "how-to" catch Trout (Bull Trout, Dolly Varden Char, Cutthroat and Rainbow) on a 5/6 weight fly rod you need to watch this video. Click here for a direct link to the video  It is also listed on the Video webpage. Title: Bull and Cutthroat Trout and listed in category Tips and Techniques. Clip #0079. Plays for 9:07 minutes.

NOW BOOKING for 2010:  Let me know if I can be of service to book you with the "best" fishing guide and/or fishing lodges for both river and ocean. There are NO extra charges to book through me, just a lot of free information and advice from a person with years and years of fishing and fish guiding experience. It is like hiring two guides for the price of one. I will promptly answer your questions and concerns. Cast here http://noelgyger.ca/special-guided.htm  to read more of what I have to offer.

  *** Don’t miss the opportunity to be guided for Steelhead on the Kalum River the last two weeks in March 2010.  Season opener begins March 15th.  Please contact me for details... Limited spots available...

  Many people book three trips per year to our area; one trip in the spring (March-April-May), one trip in the summer (June-July-August) and one trip in the fall (September-October-November).  They love having the same guide but fishing for different fish in different areas.



Be sure to check out my website at www.noelgyger.ca for news bulletins, mid week fishing updates, conservation, my history, quality waters strategy, special guided fishing trips, video clips, podcasts, scenic river photos, wildlife photos and others, comments from past guests, informational articles, archived fishing reports from 1996 through 2002 and a sportfishing market place.  I hope it meets with your entire satisfaction.  I am at your service.

  FISHING GUIDE REPORTS FOR THIS WEEK ARE FROM:



Ron Wakita, Glen Kilcup, Ariel Kuppers, Dustin Kovacvich and Jeff Carlson



CURRENT REPORT and summary for Skeena and Tributaries: 

      

TYPE OF FISH CAUGHT:  Steelhead, Trout and Dolly Varden Char for river. Salmon, Halibut, Bottom Fish and Dungeness Crab for ocean.    



Thank you for using barbless hooks! (This is a BC fishing regulation)

  FISHING THIS WEEK:  GOOD       



WEATHER:  Cloudy. A few flurries beginning early this morning changing to periods of rain this morning. High 6. Sunrise 7:26 AM Sunset 6:07 PM. Today’s yearly average temperatures: Maximum 5 degrees. Minimum - 2 degrees.



WEATHER REPORTS VIA TELEPHONE:  Terrace 250-635-4192 Kitimat 250-632-7864 Prince Rupert 250-627-1155 Smithers 250-847-1958.



SKEENA RIVER:  More and more anglers are fishing the mainstem Skeena River for Steelhead.  Some folks have been having great success.  The water has come up a little bit which should move in more Steelhead and Chinook, yes I said Chinook.

  KALUM RIVER:  Since the weather is good more anglers are heading out to try their luck fishing for Trout and Steelhead.  Anglers are reminded of a bait ban January 1 to March 15.  Fishing has been reported as fair.  The water is very low and the fish are spooked in the shallow sections.  Try to fish in the deep cut-banks. Trout fishing has been OK...but has really slowed down...as a result of the bait ban. 

  ZYMOETZ (COPPER) RIVER:   Steelhead fishing is reported as fair.  The upper section is closed as of December 31 but the lower section below the first canyon will stay open for the winter Steelheaders to enjoy.

  Fishing Report from:  Ron Wakita of Reliable Guide and Charters, Kitimat BC

  KITIMAT RIVER:  Typical for this time of year in the North West we received a mix of weather conditions.  We had some rainy days, some sunny clear days and even a little snow but the Trout fishing continues to be good. 



Feb 21 Martin Golhke landed a 15lb Steelhead under the Haisla Bridge.  Martin was excited describing his first Steelhead of the year.  Congratulations Martin!



Feb 23 Ariel Kuppers landed this Kitimat River Dolly Varden on his Fly Rod using a pink worm pattern.  Ariel was fishing with his Dragonfly 9` 7 wt Rod and his Dragonfly Expedition 7/8 Fly reel.  A 5wt Rod is better suited for Trout but this time of year there is always the potential of hooking a Steelhead.  A 7wt would give Ariel a better chance of landing a Steelhead than a 5 wt which is why he used his 7wt rod.



Feb 24 Ariel Kuppers fly fishing the upper Kitimat landed a couple more Dolly Varden on a Fly.   It snowed in the morning but Ariel said, "it was really nice and sunny when he was out fishing"  It was nice to catch Trout but I think Ariel may also be looking for an early Steelhead on his Fly rod.



SUMMARY: There was a few Steelhead landed and a few lost this week.  Trout fishing will continue to be good and we can expect more Steelhead on the Kitimat as we head into March.  Steelhead catch numbers on the Kitimat River can be outstanding in peak season.  With enhancement of Steelhead by the Kitimat River Hatchery we are fortunate to have one the best Spring Steelhead Fisheries in the area.  Stay Tuned!



DOUGLAS CHANNEL:  Herring have been reported in the Kitimat Harbour more frequently this week but we still have not received many reports of Winter Chinook being caught.



We should be getting better results but I can only report the fishing as it is, is not how we would like it to be.  A couple of boats went down to the outer waters for the weekend looking for some King Crab.  Justin Lowes who is one of our Tackle store staff is in this group so I will share his results in this Fishing Report.



Thank You to everyone who has provided info or photos for this Fishing Report.



PS: We are booking for the 2010 Fishing Season.  Please contact Noel noel@noelgyger.ca



Fishing Report from: Fishawk Guiding, Kitimat/Terrace BC



Hi Noel, this weekend I took Mike Primeau and Todd Henry out to Prince Rupert, BC on the ocean and despite gale force wind warnings all week, which were false (it had been glass smooth out there for at least 3 days prior to our outing ) we had a great day. We bottom fished a few spots and got into a few quillback rockfish and we all caught a few big sculpins (bullheads)



Our plan for the day was to troll for springs. Mike nailed this nice little Halibut while trolling our spring spot and not too long after, I hit my spring. The day was calm all day which was quite rare for Rupert and fishing was a success. Calcutta reels www.fish.shimano.com and Berkley www.purefishing.com big game were the days choice of tools. Luhr Jensen www.rapala.ca flashers with rolling anchovies worked for the trolling. Jigging heavy buzz bombs caught the rest. Going out again soon...you should jump in sometime Noel!  Tight lines  Glen Kilcup, Fishawk Guiding



Fishing Report from: Fishing Report from:  J & E Tackle Shop, Prince Rupert BC



Hi Noel, I have had a few reports of folks catching some Winter Springs.  With the nice weather it has been windy at times. When the weather is not co-operative, the Prawning and Crabbing is a good alternative and is usually very productive this time of the year. Take advantage when the weather is nice and  take to the water. Tight Lines and enjoy our North Pacific Playground

  Fishing Report from:  Cory Koenig of Webflyz, Smithers BC

  Cory Koenig is taking custom fly orders for any species now at www.webflyz.com



Highest Quality, Durable, and Competitively Priced Flies for any Species!



Hello Noel, Spring is near, and the Olympics are almost done. GOLD CANADA GOLD!!! In the excitement, I have made some Olympic Medal flies that are sure to catch fish! Using the ever popular BLUE for steelhead, these flies were created!

http://www.webflyz.com/fishing-resources/fly-talk.html is where you can view the GOLD, SILVER, and BRONZE medal flies!

  Nothing much to report, except I am sure everyone is tying flies these days for a great anticipated spring steelhead trip very soon!

  There is some great opportunities to ice-fish for large char in the Smithers/Houston area though, eating most any baitfish imitations you may have! Check out GUMMY MINNOWS for great success, especially for sea-run trout!

  Babine Lake has provided some decent char and rainbow trout ice fishing, although the ice is becoming submerged with water. Many small lakes around Tukkii Lodge and the Nilkitkwa road and the entire Babine Lake road leading up to Babine Lake are filled with an abundance of cutthroat and rainbows. Weather has been very good for ice fishing this past week, but getting anglers out there is a different story. We have an abundance of fishing opportunities in the Bulkley Valley, time to take advantage!  Spring is near, and many anglers are very itchy for spring steelhead fishing!



... Need CHAR catching flies? Then look at webflyz.com or give me a call 1-250-877-2021 or, ...if you are in need of lures or anything else for ice-fishing, contact Steve Hidber at Oscar's Source for Sports.



Anticipation is definitely on spring fishing in the Terrace area for steelhead. Many new anglers/customers are asking about this years steelhead fishing in our beautiful province!

  Do you need to top up your fly box?!?! Sick of tying flies yourself? Check out Webflyz B.C.! Any flies can be custom made for your specific fishing situation.



Contact Cory at WEBFLYZ B.C. www.webflyz.com  for ice-fishing flies and more.



Check newly added fly photos at www.webflyz.com or... if you are planning a trip to hotter destinations like Belize, Mexico, Bahamas, or even the Cayman Islands check out WEBFLYZ B.C.'s website for select boxed flies that are working for many anglers right now!!! Bonefish and Stripers are sought after at the moment! From Steelhead to Stripers, Salmon to Sailfish, this fishing year has already begun in some of the warmer states!

  Check your 2009-2011 Freshwater fishing Regulations synopsis for all details concerning B.C. Lakes and upcoming spring/summer steelhead fishing in Region 6.



Good luck everyone. Yours sincerely, Cory Koenig

  Noel Gyger - WEEKLY FISHING REPORT dated January 10 – January 17, 2010

                                                    

Dear Fishing Friends:

  SUMMARY: Temperatures have been above average all week, plenty warm enough to get out fishing both river and ocean.  The upper end of the Zymoetz (Copper) River is closed to angling (as of December 31, 2009) to protect the “wintering over” wild Steelhead. To be clear just the upper reaches of the river are closed but one still may angle on the very low end, just make sure you fish below the boundary at the first canyon. The Kalum River is open to angling all winter although access to some pools is difficult because of the very low water and snow.  The Kitimat River is open all winter and if we get some warmer weather fishing for Trout should be OK. Winter Chinook fishing in the Kitimat Harbour and Douglas Channel is good right now but is weather dependent. Winter Chinook fishing in Prince Rupert is very good. Lake ice fishing is also good. Please be very careful on the ice, with the warmer weather there may be some weak spots.

  Check out the video clip from Saturday, Jan. 16th below:

  I fished with Ron Wakita and Wes Owens for Winter Chinook and Dungeness Crab in the Douglas Channel on Saturday, January 16, 2010. The weather was perfect and seas were almost flat calm. We had a great day landing five Chinook and a few Crab. The biggest Chinook weighed 20-pounds. Rods and reels were Shimano. Electric downrigger and rod holders were made by Scotty www.scotty.com Crab Traps distributed by Redl Sports www.redlsports.com Ace Line Hauler www.acelinehauler.com to effortlessly pull the traps, Danielson Bait cage (basket) and a Gibbs-Delta Tool Gauge www.gibbsfishing.com to measure the Crabs. The lead core rope used to pull the traps is made by Danielson. We placed five traps and caught a few Crabs in only one set.

  CURRENT REPORT and summary for Skeena and Tributaries: 

      

TYPE OF FISH CAUGHT:  Steelhead, Trout and Dolly Varden Char for river. Salmon, Halibut, Bottom Fish and Dungeness Crab for ocean.    



LARGEST FISH OF THE WEEK:  River: none reported this week.  Ocean: 20-pounder by Noel Gyger.  Lake: lots of Trout being caught in lakes while ice fishing.        



WEATHER: Flurries changing to rain showers this afternoon. Snowfall amount 2 to 4 cm. Becoming windy this afternoon. High plus 2. Sunrise 8:46 AM Sunset 4:44 PM. Today’s yearly average temperatures: Maximum -1 degrees. Minimum - 6 degrees.



WEATHER REPORTS VIA TELEPHONE:  Terrace 250-635-4192 Kitimat 250-632-7864 Prince Rupert 250-627-1155 Smithers 250-847-1958.



SKEENA RIVER:  The Skeena River is frozen over in places.  The places that are not frozen are filled with flowing ice.  The graph below demonstrates these ice flows have jammed and caused the river to rise.  Fishing is nearly impossible under these conditions.  Please be careful walking on the ice.  

  Skeena River height: http://scitech.pyr.ec.gc.ca/waterweb/fullgraph.asp

  KALUM RIVER:  Since the weather has warmed up more anglers are heading out to try their luck fishing for Steelhead.  Anglers are reminded of a bait ban January 1 to March 15.

  ZYMOETZ (COPPER) RIVER:  Sorry, I haven’t checked the water conditions today but I think they would be OK now with the warmer weather.  The upper section is closed as of December 31 but the lower section below the first canyon will stay open for the winter Steelheaders to enjoy.

  KITIMAT RIVER: We received milder temperatures and some heavy rain during the early part of this week.  The rain caused the Kitimat River levels to rise and by mid week the river was dirty and unfishable.  The higher river levels and milder temperatures also melted and /or flushed a lot of the snow and ice on the Kitimat River and opened up the most main channels of the Kitimat River.  By Thursday and Friday the rain stopped and river levels dropped. The water cleaned and is now fishable.  A few Trout fishermen were able to get out and catch some Trout.

  Jan 15 Mike Campbell was out fishing the upper Kitimat River and landed 2 Cutthroat Trout and lost something big that he thought might have been a Steelhead.  As Mike experienced there is a small winter population of Steelhead in the Kitimat River albeit very small.  It is always a welcome surprise for any Trout angler to hook a Steelhead on Trout gear.

  Summary: The Kitimat River will be productive for Trout but as always, depending on the weather. 

 

DOUGLAS CHANNEL: The weather this weekend was perfect to do some Winter Chinook fishing in the harbour, crabbing or just boating on the Douglas Channel.  Many boaters who keep their boats in the water over the winter like to enjoy time on the Douglas Channel.  It is also a good idea to run the boats to charge up the batteries and circulate the fluids to ensure everything is in Tip Top shape.



Jan 14 Wes Owens was out doing some Crabbing and dropped a line for a couple of hours and lost a feeder Chinook.  He did manage to get 6 Crab for his friend John.

  Jan 16 I had the pleasure of fishing with my good friends, Noel Gyger and Wes Owens.  We had an awesome day fishing for "Winter Chinook" in the Kitimat Harbour. Wes and I started off our fishing trip by being pleasantly surprised to receive a wonderful assortment of baking from Noel's wife, Gail.  Thank you Gail, they were delicious and they may have provided the inspiration for some good fishing. We landed five Winter Chinook in total but we released one. 



The first two Chinook were landed using Gibbs UV Green Strip Highliner Flasher and a purple True Roll.  This has been the bright star of our Winter Chinook fishing so far.

  The next 3 Chinook were landed on Wes' favorite rig.  It includes a Luhr Jensen Abe and Al #1 Flasher with an Anchovy in a Rhys Davis metallic blue/green Anchovy Teaser head.  Noel landed a beautiful 20lb Winter Chinook on one of these rigs.  Congratulations Noel. The Crabbing was slow although we did catch a few for Noel to take home to Gail who enjoys Dungeness Crab.

  It was a great day fishing with Wes and Noel, we caught a few Winter Chinook, told a few fishing stories, ate some of Gail’s delicious baked goods and caught some Dungeness Crab.  Thanks for the wonderful memories Noel and Wes.

  Jan 12 Ariel Kuppers went fishing up to Ross Lake with his girlfriend Nicolette, his sister Emma and his buddy Travis.  They hooked a few Brook Trout but only managed to land two.  "One was 3lbs" said Ariel. "The other was smaller but we had quite the adventure to get two Trout".

 

Thanks to everyone for providing pictures and info for this report.



Good Health and Good Fishing!



Sincerely

Ron

  Fishing Report from:  Chad Black of Nicholas Dean Lodge, Terrace BC



Starting in January and building through March, fresh Steelhead like this mint bright hen enter the Skeena River and its tributaries. These fish are amongst the largest of the year and with warming water temperatures can be incredible fighters...

  Hello Anglers, First off, I'd like to wish you all a Happy New Year and hope that you had an enjoyable holiday season this year with your family and friends!

  You know, I've been told by a few people that I might have chosen the worst couple of years to pick up and move to northwest BC, at least by Winter Steelhead fishing standards. Both this Winter 2010 and the Winter of 2009 have certainly been challenging in the sense that fishing conditions have been less than ideal. Starting in mid-November this past year, the weather was, for lack of a better phrase, just plain bad. Very cold (down to -20C was common) temperatures, and winds consistently in the gale force range are two very tough opponents when trying to spend quality time on the river, and a few fishing buddies have said that this lasted all through the holidays.

So, upon my arrival back in Skeena Steelhead country late last week, instead of finding the Kalum, Copper and Skeena Rivers in fishable shape, I unfortunately found the opposite: rivers mostly frozen over and little in the way of fishing opportunity. Or, so I thought. I'd based my observations on driving over the local bridges, and hadn't gone that extra step at checking in at my favourite pools. Jeff Langley and Sky Richard had, and said that the rivers were very much fishable if you did some hiking, though there were still sections frozen over. Apparently Sky has done quite well trout fishing on a few rivers in the area and had managed to land a few Steelhead as well. I suppose the moral of the story is always do your "due diligence..."

  For the past few days, I'm happy to report that temperatures have risen and steady rains have helped to melt shelf ice and open up our best Winter Steelhead fisheries. With rivers on the rise and the fact that there is generally a strong push of Winter Steelhead into the Lower Skeena and its tributaries at this time of year, I'm optimistic for my chances on the weekend...



With the start of the new year underway, and to help give our readers information and direction on the best techniques, tackle and presentations when targeting Salmon and Steelhead on the Skeena and its tributaries, I've also decided to add a new section to our fishing reports, titled: "Skeena River Fishing Tips." Whether you're a spey caster who loves swinging large Intruder flies for Steelhead or a trophy Chinook angler after the leviathans of the deep, there will be something for you to enjoy which just might help you land that next big fish you've been dreaming about. This week's tip is on the Hawaiian Punch fly, a popular and venerable pattern that has helped our guides and guests get into many, many Steelhead and Salmon here on the Skeena.

  All the best for a successful and enjoyable year ahead and, as always,

Tight lines and screaming reels.  Chad Black, Operations Manager



Fishing Report from:  J & E Tackle Shop, Prince Rupert BC

  Ray Hascarl and his son Dylan holding a 74lb. Chinook Salmon caught 30th of June out off the north end of Dundas Island.

  The high winds and pounding rain continuing to be a problem for the majority of the winter anglers. For the few hard core fishermen that do take to the water, they are on the most part still being rewarded for their efforts. There has been a number of Winter Chinook reported being caught off the waters of Port Simpson ranging in size from 5 to 25lbs.

  Ray and his son Dylan are long time friends of mine which have been coming to Prince Rupert from their hometown of Nakusp BC. for the past 6 to 7 years. They always stop in to J & E’s Tackle to gear up and get the latest up to date fishing report before heading out on the water. Here is their story of the BIG ONE that didn’t get away.

  We caught it around 7:15pm and were one of the last boats on the water that evening so we had lots of room to fight it. We fought it for about 40 minutes with me on the rod, my son Dylan running the boat and brother Dean doing the netting. Once it was in the net I reached down and grabbed the gill plates and steered the head of the fish into the side of the boat as it was trying to swim through the net. It thrashed around for about a minute straight before I could pull it over the side. One note is we fished from 4:30 that morning all day while only catching one other fish around 5 lbs. It would have been my worst days ever fishing the ocean and then I caught the big one and made it one of the best days ever. We were supposed to be in at Dundas 101 at 6pm to eat dinner but my watch quit working that day so I was using my cell phone and the time on it was 1 hour behind because of Alaska time. Had my watch not quit, we would have been at supper and not even fishing when I caught it. Funny how things work out.

 

Just a reminder to all those Halibut sport fishermen that the month of January is closed to Halibut fishing.

  Good Day Noel! Well, Jack Frost has loosened his grip on us. The warmer weather has put the anglers in the mood. There are a few Steelhead being caught but as reported to me “You have to put the work in”. There also has been some reports of good trout fishing on the Kitimat. Sorry Noel, no monsters to report this week! Been pretty quiet. Have a super day!

  Cheers, Jason Munday

  Highest Quality, Durable, and Competitively Priced Flies for any Species!



Hi Noel, here is what you asked for, not much fishing 'round here, but there is still die-hards!

  This warm weather reminds a person in the Bulkley Valley of SPRING in January!  All roads leading to any lake are very icy, and caution is to be taken for all your fishing trips in January.

  Ice fishing is still your best bet, emphasis is on the lakes close to Smithers and Houston. Chapman, Babine, Fulton Lakes are great for Char up to 12 lbs. Ross, Call, Barrett, Klinger Lakes all support Rainbows, Brookies, or both up to 8lbs, with an average of 1-2lbs. The staff at Oscars Source for Sports reported that this week many anglers had really good success at Klinger Lake for brook trout.  Irrigation, Johnson, Helen and Lake Kathlyn support CUTTHROAT TROUT and some CUTTBOWS up to 3 lbs.



There are some larger, older Char in the lakes in the rear of Houston B.C. at the top of the Fraser River watershed, close to Francios Lake, but a full day is needed. Gummy Minnows are a hit, used for any species, any time of year. Use sizes #6 to #1 for trout, and #4/0 for large lakers.

  Meat and tater flies are still the conehead black and olive leeches, pheasant tail nymphs, and flash helps for these flies, as the lakes are most often dark!

  Lyman lures www.lymanlures.com are a hit for any fishing, and Pink Deadly Dicks have brought many large trout to the ice over the years.

  The use of the moon phases may help you, fish the 26th to the 29th of January for some of the better times to catch fish this month.

  Any of these flies can be custom made for your specific fishing situation. Contact Cory at WEBFLYZ B.C. www.webflyz.com  for more ice-fishing flies that work.

  Check newly added fly photos weekly…or if you are planning a trip to hotter destinations this winter, check out WEBFLYZ B.C. website for flies that catch any species in the saltwater, even Marlin!

  Check your 2009-2011 Freshwater fishing Regulations synopsis for all details concerning Lakes in Region 6.

  Good luck everyone. Yours sincerely, Cory Koenig

  Noel Gyger - WEEKLY FISHING REPORT dated December 20 – December 27, 2009

                                                   

Dear Fishing Friends:

  Happy New Year everyone!

  SUMMARY:  Sunny and windy with high of minus 2.  Winter Steelheading is in full swing although the cold weather has slowed it down a bit.  Sometimes it only means shorter fishing days but the “determined” fishermen are still getting out there.  Some would say they’re “crazy”! The Zymoetz (Copper) River closes to angling above the sign at the transmission line crossing (below Zymoetz Canyon) at the end of the month (January 1 to June 15).  So get out and enjoy before the closure.  To be clear just the upper reaches of the river are closed one still may angle on the very low end, just make sure you fish below the boundary at the first canyon.  The Kalum River is open to angling all winter although access to some pools is difficult as to the extreme low water and snow.  The Kitimat River is open all winter also, and if we get some warmer weather fishing for Trout should be OK.  The Blue Knuckle Derby is taking place in Prince Rupert today.  I understand all tickets for this exciting event have been sold out since December 26th.  Winter Chinook ocean fishing in Prince Rupert is very good.  Check out the Jeff Carlson of J&E Tackle below for more detail.

  CURRENT REPORT and summary for Skeena and Tributaries: 

      

TYPE OF FISH CAUGHT:  Steelhead, Trout and Dolly Varden Char for river. Salmon, Halibut, Bottom Fish and Dungeness Crab for ocean.    

  FISHING THIS WEEK: FAIR

  WEATHER: Sunny. Windy. High minus 2. Wind chill minus 15 this morning. Sunrise 8:57 AM Sunset 4:15 PM. Today’s yearly average temperatures: Maximum -1 degrees. Minimum - 6 degrees.



WEATHER REPORTS VIA TELEPHONE:  Terrace 250-635-4192 Kitimat 250-632-7864 Prince Rupert 250-627-1155 Smithers 250-847-1958.



SKEENA RIVER:  The Skeena River is frozen over in places.  The places that are not frozen are filled with flowing ice.  The graph below demonstrates these ice flows have jammed and caused the river to rise.  Fishing is nearly impossible under these conditions.  

  Skeena River height: http://scitech.pyr.ec.gc.ca/waterweb/fullgraph.asp

  KALUM RIVER:  Since the weather has warmed up a few “hearty” anglers are Steelhead fishing again.  Last week I reported a good run of Steelhead but I have been in contact with some experienced local anglers and they tell me it has been slow.

  Even though the weather has been cold this river usually does not freeze over.  It has something to do with the warming of the water flowing out of Kalum Lake.  It will freeze if the water level drops very low and if it stays cold and starts snowing heavily.  If it is cold enough the snow will not melt when it hits the water.  The flowing snow clumps together and jams when it hits the rocks and boulders.  The river current in some places nearly stops flowing and if it remains cold it will freeze over in these areas that are like lakes.  This seems to happen every few years or so.

  ZYMOETZ (COPPER) RIVER:  The water is in poor shape with moderate to heavy ice flows and fishing for Steelhead is slow.  The upper section closes at the end of the month (December 31) but the lower section below the first canyon will stay open for the winter Steelheaders to enjoy.

  KITIMAT RIVER: The Kitimat River is low and clear and certain areas still remain frozen.  Even with all activities of Christmas some anglers are still venturing out to do some fishing on the Kitimat River.

  Dec 24 Even with the Christmas Festivities, Ariel Kuppers, Mitch Lupick and Travis James managed to sneak out and do a little Trout fishing on the Kitimat River.  They managed to land 15 to 20 Trout ice fishing in Goose Creek.  Ariel also said that a family showed up to fish but they did not have an ice auger so Ariel and his group kindly gave up the holes they had drilled.  Well done Ariel, Mitch and Travis.  Not only did you guys display some awesome angler etiquette but you also demonstrated the Christmas spirit of sharing.

  DOUGLAS CHANNEL:  Although there was some activity on the Kitimat River prior to Christmas there was very little activity on the Douglas Channel.  There are a few boats planning some Winter Chinook fishing during the holidays.  Stay Tuned!

Dear Fishing Friends:

  SUMMARY:   As I am writing this summery the air temperature outside is -8 degrees C with high out flow wind (out of the north).  We all know what this means…it is way too cold to go fishing.  I think the wintering over Steelhead need a break from us anglers once an awhile. The Trout lakes should start freezing over now and the ice fishermen will start dusting off their gear.  Weatherman says this cold snap may be with us for awhile.

  December 2, 2009 One "New" clip posted on Video Clips:

  I was invited to go fishing with Ron Wakita and Wes Owens for Dungeness Crab in the Kitimat ocean Douglas Channel November 27, 2009.  This video shows "how-to" catch Crab using the "right tools for the job" such as Crab Traps distributed by Redl Sports www.redlsports.ca ,  Ace Line Hauler Crab and Prawn puller www.acelinehauler.com  to effortlessly pull the traps, Danielson Bait Cage (basket) and a Gibbs-Delta Crab Gauge www.gibbsfishing.com  to measure the Crabs. The lead core rope used to pull the traps is made by Danielson. We placed four traps for only one set and were only one Crab short of the daily limit of six each. Cast here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qq-wU33Ihoo for a direct link to the video. It is also list on the Video webpage: Tips and Techniques: Title: HOW TO catch Dungeness Crab and is video clip #0078. It plays for 6:52 minutes

  NOW BOOKING for 2010:  Let me know if I can be of service to book you with the "best" fishing guide and/or fishing lodges for both river and ocean. There are NO extra charges to book through me, just a lot of free information and advice from a person with years and years of fishing and fish guiding experience. It is like hiring two guides for the price of one. I will promptly answer your questions and concerns. Cast here http://noelgyger.ca/special-guided.htm to read more of what I have to offer.

  Many people book three trips per year to our area; one trip in the spring (March-April-May), one trip in the summer (June-July-August) and one trip in the fall (September-October-November).  They love having the same guide but fishing for different fish in different areas.

  FISHING THIS WEEK: (Too cold!)

                                      

SKEENA RIVER:  water has been dropping all week and is in good shape. It is too cold to fish right now. Late fall Steelhead should be coming in now plus “excellent” fishing for Trout and Dolly Varden Char.

  KALUM RIVER:  Late fall and early winter Steelhead fishing will start again when the weather warms up. 

  ZYMOETZ (COPPER) RIVER:  Really too cold to fish right now.

  KITIMAT RIVER:  The Kitimat weather was sunny and clear early in the week and some anglers managed to get to do some Trout fishing with good results.

  The Lower Dike, Goose Creek and the Big Pool at Cable Car were the Hot Holes this week.  Cable Car was reported to have lots of small Trout.

  Mid week in Kitimat we received some light snow falls followed by some rain which melted most of the Snow.

  During the latter part of this week we received Sunny, Clear and some very Cold weather.  It dropped to below zero at times.

  Dec 1st Jacques Losier reports "My son Colby Age 7 caught some incredible cut throats. He caught these 20 inch plus fish with a pink worm and a real worm. He landed at least 15 to 20 fish all in the 11 to 13 inch range. Awesome day of fishing!"

  Wow!  These are some very nice trout.  Well done Colby!  And at Age 7!  It is so refreshing to report a Father and Son sharing the passion of fishing and it is quality time with Colby will never forget.  Well done Dad!  Thank You for taking the time out of your busy life to send me the pictures

  DOUGLAS CHANNEL:  The Winter Chinook fishing in the Kitimat Harbour is difficult to determine as only one boat was reported fishing the Harbour this week. 

  Nov 1st Wes Owens of Golden Adventures took my brother Brian and my Twin brother Rick Wakita out for Winter Chinook and to do a little crabbing.  I asked Wes not too try to hard to catch any fish for my brothers because of our ongoing Sibling rivalry.  For readers that have brothers you may be able to relate to the normal competitive nature of brothers.  It can be bad in most cases but if you add the issue that we were all born the same year.  (Brian was born in January and Rick and I were born in November the same year) it can be a little too competitive but it is all in good fun!

  I am happy to report that they didn't catch any Winter Chinook. :-) They did however catch their limit of crab with the help of the Ace Line Hauler www.acelinehauler.com They both loved pulling the traps and they did catch a lot of crab but "Whats Up" with the FiFI gloves!

  I am sure that Wes and my brothers put in honest effort but they did not find the Winter Chinook.  Stay tuned.



Thank You to everyone who provided info and photos to this Fishing Report.



Hope you enjoyed the Fishing Report.



We are booking River and Saltwater trips for the 2010 season.  Interested anglers, please contact Noel:  noel@noelgyger.ca



Good Luck Good Health Good Fishing

Fishing Report from:  Nicholas Dean Lodge, Terrace

  Spring Steelhead fishing near Terrace is probably one of the most overlooked seasons on the Skeena system, despite its reputation for large fish. Taft Ring can attest to this, having landed this 23 lb Steelhead on his second day of fishing!



Hello Anglers,  around this time of year, I always find myself reflecting back on the season - of enjoyable dinners and conversations had with clients, tying flies in anticipation of the next trip and yes, the clichéd big fish stories told at the lodge which usually don't involve myself. So, for this week's report, rather than one specific story, I decided to do put some of these memories on paper - let's call them the 2009 season highlights...

  Starting our Spring Steelhead season at our rustic and comfortable lodge on Kalum Lake Road, we hosted a number of clients who focused their angling efforts on a few Skeena River tributaries and the big river itself. Like most other years, there seemed to be proportionately more, large Steelhead landed in the Spring than at other times of year, and Taft Ring took top honors, landing a 23 lb Steelhead on the fly (this week's report photo). During that same week, we had the pleasure of hosting legendary Steelhead angler Lani Waller who had recently penned his newest book, "A Steelheader's Way." Lani is a charismatic yet genuine, humble man whose passion for Steelhead and Steelhead fly fishing is infectious and derived from many years on the water. Having the chance to meet and share stories with Lani was certainly a highlight of my Steelhead fishing career, and I suspect for those anglers who also joined us that week.

  From mid April through mid May, we continued to develop one of our newest fishing programs - Adventure Steelheading - on small, not-to-be named coastal rivers. Why Adventure Steelheading? Well, many of the coastal rivers we fish aren't the easiest to access and demand a fair amount of hiking and wading on the part of the angler. On a few rivers in particular, we'll start the day by driving down a logging road, launching in the Ocean, jet boating to the river's estuary and from there move from pool to pool in search of Steelhead that average 12-15 lbs. This year, Sonja Sorbo took top honors with a 20 lb Steelhead landed in early May - one that I'm sure she won't easily forget!

  Perhaps one of our most significant announcements this year was our partnership with five-star Yellow Cedar Lodge. Beginning April 20, we moved operations to this incredible facility, and clients enjoyed some of the best fine dining, hospitality and amenities in Northwest BC. Building upon our successes this season, we look forward to working with Alf and Simone at Yellow Cedar Lodge during the 2010 season as well.



It was another great year for Trophy Chinook Salmon on the Skeena and Kitimat Rivers during the early part of our Summer season, complete with some absolute monster fish. If you saw my Trophy Chinook of 2009 blog post a few months back, you will have probably already seen a few photos of these incredible fish. Congratulations go out to: Andrea Scaramella for a 60 lb fish he landed in late July, Bob Cusick for his 70 lb lifetime fish and Ron Kostich, with an 80 lb buck which is reputed to be the largest Chinook caught by any angler during the 2009 season.



As many devoted Skeena Steelhead anglers are aware, Steelhead numbers on the Skeena during early August at the Tyee test fishery were some of the highest reported in the last 10 years, which is certainly encouraging. Steelhead fishing on the mainstem Skeena near Terrace followed suit, particularly in late August and early September, with many large Steelhead in the 18-23 lb range landed. Dennis Channing landed a chrome bright 23 lb Steelhead on the Skeena in late August with Sky Richard, which was featured in our 488th Fishing Report.



Our Fall Steelhead and Trophy Coho season is always one of our most popular seasons, and 2009 was no different. We hosted several groups through September and October and, fishing overall was quite good. Many anglers had the opportunity to experience the magic of seeing a large Steelhead rise to a waked dry fly - certainly one of those defining experiences in one's angling career. Fabrizio Oliva was one of our more lucky anglers this Fall, as his first Steelhead landed was a 20 lb fish from one of our remote wilderness rivers. If this wasn't enough, he followed up with an even larger Steelhead stretching to 22 lbs a few days later on the same system! Perhaps one of our biggest success stories this year, however, was the marked improvement in Coho Salmon returns for the North Coast - nearly every system we fished this year had an abundance of fish, and the fishing was unparalleled! Top rods went to Gary Bartholomew and Deb Morrow who fished with us in late October, and landed over 60 Coho in one day...

  On the whole, the 2009 year was a successful one for us, and we owe much of this to you, our clients. We would like to thank each of you individually for your patronage and company in your quest for exciting fishing experiences, and hope to see you in the 2010 season or in the near future.



Summary of Current Conditions: With air temperatures dropping well below freezing, fishing conditions are somewhat more difficult this late in the season. It's not to say the fish aren't there - they are - but, when your guides freeze every 4 or 5 casts it's slightly more difficult to focus on your presentation. On our warmer days, however, I have heard reports of anglers catching a few Steelhead on the Skeena and its tributary rivers, particularly in slower moving pools. With the last of the Coho Salmon spawning in local rivers, trout fishing has improved markedly, and targeting these fish with small flesh flies and single eggs are likely the most productive methods of fishing.

  Please contact Noel Gyger noel@noelgyger.ca to book your next guided fishing trip with us.

  From all of us here at Nicholas Dean Lodge, I'd like to wish you a safe and happy holiday season this year...

  Fishing Report from:  J & E Tackle Shop, Prince Rupert

  Noel the photos are of Miles Fuller and his charter vessel the Alouette Gal. Miles is holding a 14lb. Chinook caught Dec 5/09 in the Prince Rupert Harbour.

  The Winter Chinook fishing has been awesome this past week with numerous reports from anglers taking to the inshore waters of Prince Rupert Harbour, Tucks Narrows, Spire Ledge, Venn Pass and Tugwell Island are all producing winter Chinooks.  If you do not have a boat to get out and enjoy this winter fishery you can book any one of the local guides with rates reduced by up to 50% from summer months. So take to the water and do some winter angling, crabbing and prawning. You can contact Jeff Carlson of BC STYLE Fishing Charters www.bcstylefishingcharters.com

  DOUGLAS CHANNEL:  The Winter Chinook fishing in the Kitimat Harbour is difficult to determine as only one boat was reported fishing the Harbour this week. 

  Nov 1st Wes Owens of Golden Adventures took my brother Brian and my Twin brother Rick Wakita out for Winter Chinook and to do a little crabbing.  I asked Wes not too try to hard to catch any fish for my brothers because of our ongoing Sibling rivalry.  For readers that have brothers you may be able to relate to the normal competitive nature of brothers.  It can be bad in most cases but if you add the issue that we were all born the same year.  (Brian was born in January and Rick and I were born in November the same year) it can be a little too competitive but it is all in good fun!

  I am happy to report that they didn't catch any Winter Chinook. :-) They did however catch their limit of crab with the help of the Ace Line Hauler www.acelinehauler.com They both loved pulling the traps and they did catch a lot of crab but "Whats Up" with the FiFI gloves!

  I am sure that Wes and my brothers put in honest effort but they did not find the Winter Chinook.  Stay tuned.

Fishing Report from:  Nicholas Dean Lodge, Terrace

  Spring Steelhead fishing near Terrace is probably one of the most overlooked seasons on the Skeena system, despite its reputation for large fish. Taft Ring can attest to this, having landed this 23 lb Steelhead on his second day of fishing!



Hello Anglers,  around this time of year, I always find myself reflecting back on the season - of enjoyable dinners and conversations had with clients, tying flies in anticipation of the next trip and yes, the clichéd big fish stories told at the lodge which usually don't involve myself. So, for this week's report, rather than one specific story, I decided to do put some of these memories on paper - let's call them the 2009 season highlights...

  Starting our Spring Steelhead season at our rustic and comfortable lodge on Kalum Lake Road, we hosted a number of clients who focused their angling efforts on a few Skeena River tributaries and the big river itself. Like most other years, there seemed to be proportionately more, large Steelhead landed in the Spring than at other times of year, and Taft Ring took top honors, landing a 23 lb Steelhead on the fly (this week's report photo). During that same week, we had the pleasure of hosting legendary Steelhead angler Lani Waller who had recently penned his newest book, "A Steelheader's Way." Lani is a charismatic yet genuine, humble man whose passion for Steelhead and Steelhead fly fishing is infectious and derived from many years on the water. Having the chance to meet and share stories with Lani was certainly a highlight of my Steelhead fishing career, and I suspect for those anglers who also joined us that week.

  From mid April through mid May, we continued to develop one of our newest fishing programs - Adventure Steelheading - on small, not-to-be named coastal rivers. Why Adventure Steelheading? Well, many of the coastal rivers we fish aren't the easiest to access and demand a fair amount of hiking and wading on the part of the angler. On a few rivers in particular, we'll start the day by driving down a logging road, launching in the Ocean, jet boating to the river's estuary and from there move from pool to pool in search of Steelhead that average 12-15 lbs. This year, Sonja Sorbo took top honors with a 20 lb Steelhead landed in early May - one that I'm sure she won't easily forget!

  Perhaps one of our most significant announcements this year was our partnership with five-star Yellow Cedar Lodge. Beginning April 20, we moved operations to this incredible facility, and clients enjoyed some of the best fine dining, hospitality and amenities in Northwest BC. Building upon our successes this season, we look forward to working with Alf and Simone at Yellow Cedar Lodge during the 2010 season as well.



It was another great year for Trophy Chinook Salmon on the Skeena and Kitimat Rivers during the early part of our Summer season, complete with some absolute monster fish. If you saw my Trophy Chinook of 2009 blog post a few months back, you will have probably already seen a few photos of these incredible fish. Congratulations go out to: Andrea Scaramella for a 60 lb fish he landed in late July, Bob Cusick for his 70 lb lifetime fish and Ron Kostich, with an 80 lb buck which is reputed to be the largest Chinook caught by any angler during the 2009 season.



As many devoted Skeena Steelhead anglers are aware, Steelhead numbers on the Skeena during early August at the Tyee test fishery were some of the highest reported in the last 10 years, which is certainly encouraging. Steelhead fishing on the mainstem Skeena near Terrace followed suit, particularly in late August and early September, with many large Steelhead in the 18-23 lb range landed. Dennis Channing landed a chrome bright 23 lb Steelhead on the Skeena in late August with Sky Richard, which was featured in our 488th Fishing Report.



Our Fall Steelhead and Trophy Coho season is always one of our most popular seasons, and 2009 was no different. We hosted several groups through September and October and, fishing overall was quite good. Many anglers had the opportunity to experience the magic of seeing a large Steelhead rise to a waked dry fly - certainly one of those defining experiences in one's angling career. Fabrizio Oliva was one of our more lucky anglers this Fall, as his first Steelhead landed was a 20 lb fish from one of our remote wilderness rivers. If this wasn't enough, he followed up with an even larger Steelhead stretching to 22 lbs a few days later on the same system! Perhaps one of our biggest success stories this year, however, was the marked improvement in Coho Salmon returns for the North Coast - nearly every system we fished this year had an abundance of fish, and the fishing was unparalleled! Top rods went to Gary Bartholomew and Deb Morrow who fished with us in late October, and landed over 60 Coho in one day...

  On the whole, the 2009 year was a successful one for us, and we owe much of this to you, our clients. We would like to thank each of you individually for your patronage and company in your quest for exciting fishing experiences, and hope to see you in the 2010 season or in the near future.



Summary of Current Conditions: With air temperatures dropping well below freezing, fishing conditions are somewhat more difficult this late in the season. It's not to say the fish aren't there - they are - but, when your guides freeze every 4 or 5 casts it's slightly more difficult to focus on your presentation. On our warmer days, however, I have heard reports of anglers catching a few Steelhead on the Skeena and its tributary rivers, particularly in slower moving pools. With the last of the Coho Salmon spawning in local rivers, trout fishing has improved markedly, and targeting these fish with small flesh flies and single eggs are likely the most productive methods of fishing.

  Please contact Noel Gyger noel@noelgyger.ca to book your next guided fishing trip with us.

  From all of us here at Nicholas Dean Lodge, I'd like to wish you a safe and happy holiday season this year...

  Fishing Report from:  J & E Tackle Shop, Prince Rupert

  Noel the photos are of Miles Fuller and his charter vessel the Alouette Gal. Miles is holding a 14lb. Chinook caught Dec 5/09 in the Prince Rupert Harbour.

  The Winter Chinook fishing has been awesome this past week with numerous reports from anglers taking to the inshore waters of Prince Rupert Harbour, Tucks Narrows, Spire Ledge, Venn Pass and Tugwell Island are all producing winter Chinooks.  If you do not have a boat to get out and enjoy this winter fishery you can book any one of the local guides with rates reduced by up to 50% from summer months. So take to the water and do some winter angling, crabbing and prawning. You can contact Jeff Carlson of BC STYLE Fishing Charters www.bcstylefishingcharters.com
