Noel Gyger - WEEKLY FISHING REPORT dated January 13 – January 20, 2008

Dear Fishing Friends:

SUMMARY: The winter weather has been fair all week. All of our local rivers are extremely low and clean. With these conditions the angler must be stealthy as the fish are spooked. Try using small terminal tackle and only fish the deep water.

Thank you to those who have sent me their vote for best 2007 fishing Photo of the Week. Keep those votes coming. It is wonderful to hear from you. I will let you know at the end of January which one received the most votes. Cast here to view the photos again http://www.noelgyger.ca/photos-of-the-week

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

- Jan 13/08 One item posted on Market Place http://www.noelgyger.ca/market-place.htm

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.

Noel had it nailed. Not much to report as the water is extremely low and clean and the steelhead are spooked.

CURRENT REPORT and summary for Northern Coastal Rivers:

Fishing Report from: Ron Wakita of Reliable Guide and Charters

The photo above is from last summer when the weather was good and the Chinook fishing was excellent. The lucky angler is Justin Lowe with a nice Chinook from the Kitimat River

KITIMAT RIVER: This week the weather was quite mild compared to the cold and snow we have been getting. There has been very little fishing activity on the Kitimat River although the weather has been more forgiving. The trout fishing is usually better this time of year for anyone willing to get out and give it a try.

DOUGLAS CHANNEL: With the milder weather there was a couple of boats fishing the Kitimat Harbour for winter Chinook this week but the two skippers I spoke to had no fish to report. The conditions were "great" but "no fish". It was flat calm water and nice to get the boat out to charge the batteries. Maybe this weekend more boats will get out and find some fish.

Update to this update: Just got word that Clayton Harker and his fishing partner landed four Chinook on Saturday. They were fishing with #6 Gibbs Stewart 50/50. Stay tuned.
