We are seeing good numbers of fish on the Kitimat river the water has been in great shape for the last 3 weeks average size of fish we have been catching on our fully guided fishing trips have been 27 to 30 pounds. Largest Chinook caught to date was 46 pounds landed by our guest from the UK he was blown away.
Our new Clackacraft drift boats are more comfortable than you can imagine the stability is second to none. 18 ft Clack Max is the only way to drift.
The Skeena river is shaping up with fish being caught at Ferry Island, The mouth of the Kalum river AKA Hog Line. The Kasiks has been a good place to wet a line on your way to Prince Rupert just below the highway bridge. Lakelese river bridge has been producing some fresh Chinook salmon as well using Jigs.
The Nass river is still very high and unfishable however find some clean water find some fresh chinook getting out of the mud, float fishing roe has been the most productive method also spoons are a safe bet in the right water, Cranberry or Kiteen rivers are starting to fish as well.
Kildala river on the Douglas Channel will see some fresh fish soon also a nice day trip chinook & fresh crab all in the same day.
If you haven’t booked your guided fishing trip dont delay you may just find yourself standing on the bank watching the boats go by.
Gordon Mckean & Myself Gill McKean look forward to hearing from you.
