Please find, attached, the Skeena Update to September 25th, 2011.  This file
contains the Tyee Test Fishery generated Skeena River summer steelhead index
to September 24th, including daily, cumulative and escapement estimate
figures, in addition to a summary table showing cumulative index data since
1998, overall and decadal averages, et cetera, the Upper Sustut River
Enumeration Weir steelhead counts to September 19th.  The Moricetown Canyon
(Bulkley-Morice) mark-recapture estimate figure to September 16th is
pending.  The estimate is ~= 13 K, and the project is currently challenged
by yet another high discharge/turbidity event.

The Tyee Test Index to the September 24th (now complete for 2011) is 147,
63% of last year’s index to the same date and 74% of the all years’ average
(this is only the eighth year that the Test Fishery has operated on the 24th
of September – average of the 8 years fished to this date = 198; range all
years: 33 (1957) to 264 (1998)).

Nine hundred and ninety steelhead have been captured to date at the Upper
Sustut River Enumeration Weir, above average to the same date (average all
years since 1994 = 567; range: 80 (2006) to 1106 (2009)).

As of August 24th, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans estimate the
Skeena sockeye aggregate escapement past Tyee to be 1.48 million.

Commercial fishing activity in the Skeena River approach waters is complete
for this season.  Commercial fishing activity to date can be found in the
attached: Commercial Openings 2011.

Hope you have enjoyed our fishing report for September 29th 2011
