The photo of the week shows Mark Pendlington with his three kids Jenn, Brad, Michael and their friend Cole. They were very proud to catch this big Chinook (King) Salmon while ocean fishing last summer. Mark is the producer/host of the Sportfishing BC television series.

Noel Gyger - WEEKLY FISHING REPORT dated February 10 – February 17, 2008
(Number 58)

Dear Fishing Friends:

SUMMARY: It has really warmed up this week and winter Steelheading is back. There is still one problem and that is the amount of ice that has formed on most of our rivers. The Skeena and Zymoetz are just about all frozen over. We are going to need some warm weather to break this up. The Kalum is still open.

LIST OF “New” ITEMS POSTED ON THE WEBSITE THIS WEEK:

- Feb 10/08 one article posted on “Informational Articles” http://www.noelgyger.ca/info-articles.htm
- Feb 14/08 NOTICE the “Skeena Quality Waters Strategy” website is launched
- Feb 14/08 one item posted on “Conservation” http://www.noelgyger.ca/conservation.htm


NOTE Re the “Quality Waters Strategy” in the Skeena Region. Here is a direct link to the website: http://wlapwww.gov.bc.ca/ske/qws

NOW BOOKING FOR 2008 Let me know if I can be of service to book you with the "best" fishing guide and/or fishing lodges. 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.

Be sure to check out my website at http://www.noelgyger.ca for news bulletins, mid week fishing updates, conservation, my history, quality waters strategy, special guided fishing trips, video clips, 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.

CURRENT REPORT and summary for Central Coast/North Van Island Wilderness Rivers:

Fishing Report from: Nimmo Bay Resort

What do you suppose this gentleman is thinking, or looking at? Could it be the one that got away? Could he be looking at his partner landing the big one? Or is he just resting after catching just too many fish?

All of these scenarios are possible at Nimmo Bay. Give Noel a call to get you seated in this chair.

Craig Murray, Owner
Nimmo Bay Resort (Est. 1980)

Note from Noel: This year in 2007, out of 10 Heli fishing and tour resorts and lodges from around the world, Nimmo Bay Resort was voted number one by the prestigious, New York based Forbes Traveler magazine. Congratulations Craig, Deborah and staff.
