Skeena river fishing report.

The Skeena river steelhead run is looking strong and healthy we have experienced low water most of the 2015 season but as fall approaches the rains have begun to fall giving the avid angler and guide a little twist on hunting the mighty summer run skeena river steelhead. As the season progresses the numbers of fish in the systems of the North become plentiful giving guided anglers double digit days of hooking chrome can be more the norm.

Photos below are from Sept 5 /2015 Guests of Westcoast Fishing Adventures 2 of the anglers are new to Spey casting and both have now caught there first ever steelhead on the fly.

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.

Skeena river reports

Hello All.

The Skeena river is on the drop and the fishing is heating up.  There are already a few sockeye showing up, however we are after the Big Boys at the moment and will continue to chase them for the rest of the month.  We still have a few spaces open for your last minute fishing trip you are planning.

The Kitimat river has been in fantastic shape for the last three weeks, however it has been a little hit & miss; guess thats fishing.  Swinging a fly has been a “reel treat” this season, with the water being so perfect we have had great success when we have had guests willing to put in the time it takes to hook a hog.
