Spey Fly Fishing Guide Terrace BC REPORTING

The photo of the week shows Adam Munshaw with a huge Kalum River male Steelhead caught this spring. This fish was more than triple the size of his previous personal best Steelhead from the Great Lakes. Adam and his Dad came all the way from Ontario to fish the Kalum and really enjoy the country side and of course the fishing. Thank you for sending the photo.

Noel Gyger - WEEKLY FISHING REPORT dated April 20 – April 27, 2008 :welcome:

Dear Fishing Friends:

SUMMARY: The weather has been good all week. The water heights are about the same as last week and staying in shape. The Zymoetz (Copper) is clean and fishing is good. The Kalum is very clean and fishing is very good. The Kitimat River remains low. See the Ron Wakita report below for more detail. The Skeena River is clean and Steelhead are being caught. :fishing:

I would just like to point out the two new video clips posted on the website this week. One shows me landing a beautiful Steelhead with my spin rod. The other video shows Chad Black giving a few spey fly fishing tips. The direct links are shown below.

- Apr 21/08 one steelhead video clip posted on “Video Clips”
- Apr 22/08 one item posted on “Conservation”
- Apr 23/08 one tips & techniques video clip posted on “Video Clips”

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 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 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 Northern Coastal Rivers:

Fishing Report from: Ron Wakita of Reliable Guide and Charters


SAFETY FIRST: Drift boaters are cautioned about the log jam above the Power Lines. It is possible to portage around the log jam but it is somewhat tricky. Smart money says to beach the boat upstream and walk down and take a good look to chart the path first.

The Kitimat River earlier this week dropped to exceptionally low levels. Despite the tougher fishing conditions caused by the low clean water there were some big steelhead caught. There were six steelhead reported this past week which were twenty pounds plus including the steelhead included in this report.

This steelhead was landed by Dave from Smithers last Sunday. I guided Dave when he hooked this beauty. When Dave first set the hook and saw the tail come out of the water we thought that it may have been a Chinook. This was the largest Steelhead that Dave has landed. Congratulations Dave!

The Kitimat River this year has produced bigger than average Steelhead than I have seen in a long time. Vince from the Kitimat Hatchery also has observed similar results. Vince also comments that the brood collection team has caught mostly males with females yet to come. We had some rain on Thursday which caused more Steelhead to move up river. Brian Boudreau and Brian Apps drifted Thursday and hooked seven Steelhead on their drift. Congratulations to Brian and Brian.

It has started to rain as I am writing this report on Saturday and the forecast is for more rain for this weekend. With the rise in the river level should bring more Steelhead into the Kitimat River particularly some females. Stay Tuned! Tight Lines!

DOUGLAS CHANNEL: Pat Oliver and Clayton Harker went down the Douglas Channel and managed to catch a small halibut and a bunch of crab. Other boaters were heading out for the weekend and were not returning until Sunday evening. Most were fishing for halibut and crab which is typical for this time of year.
