FISHING REPORTS - October 12, 2016

LAKES

Lakes were fishing great this past weekend. Call Lake produced some great Brook Trout.
Please note: as per 2015-2017 fishing regulations on page 57, Region 6 daily quotes: …… and you must release Lake trout from Fraser and Skeena watersheds , Sept. 15 to Nov. 30


SALTWATER

Still halibut being caught by the die-hards out there


BABINE RIVER

River is in excellent shape but fishing has been tougher the last couple days. Be bear aware!


BULKLEY & MORICE RIVERS

The Bulkley and Morice levels and clarity are beautiful! Fishing has slowed down from last week, most likely because of the sudden drop in temperature. Should pick up as the fish become acclimatized.


KISPIOX

Water is great but fishing is slow.


KITIMAT

River is clear and beautiful. Still some fresh fish being caught, but most of the Northern Coho are turning red.


SKEENA

Again water levels and clarity are great, fishing is hit and miss. The Nass watersheds (such as the Tseax) are still producing some beautiful Northerns!

 

FISHING REPORTS - October 5, 2016

LAKES

Please note: as per 2015-2017 fishing regulations on page 57 Region 6 daily quotes: …… and you must release Lake trout from Fraser and Skeena watersheds , Sept. 15 to Nov. 30  Rainbow Trout fishing can be tremendous at this time of year. Lots of smaller lakes around the Smithers area that are worth fishing. Try Irrigation Lake, Helen Lake, Ross Lake…. Use flies or spinners.


SALTWATER

Ocean fishing pretty much done other than some halibut and crabbing.


BABINE RIVER

Water is high but clear. Fishing has been really good. Lots of fish……


BULKLEY & MORICE RIVERS

The Bulkley is a bit high but in excellent shape otherwise. Fishing for steelhead has been good! Still fish caught on dry flies. Fish hard now - it is supposed to rain hard Saturday….


KISPIOX

Water is high but clear. Fishing has been excellent. Some big, big fish caught this week.


KITIMAT

River is clearing and dropping. Fishing is slowing down but Coho are still being caught.


SKEENA

Water is high but clean. Fishing has been ok. Some fresh, fresh fish caught.



 

            

FISHING REPORTS - September 28, 2016

LAKES

Lake fishing can be awesome at this time of year. With warmer afternoons try using a dry fly on some of our smaller lakes in the Smithers area. Round Lake can be a lot of fun. So can Irrigation Lake.


SALTWATER

Ocean fishing is coming to an end with most of the Salmon being in the river and the weather changing. Still some halibut being caught though.


BABINE RIVER

High and dirty except for the top portion which is lake fed. Lots of people fishing a very short stretch….. Fishing has been good on the Babine prior to this epic blow out.


BULKLEY & MORICE RIVERS

Telkwa River is spewing in dirt. Bulkley below the Telkwa is not fishable. The Morice River is out. If we do not get more rain the Morice/Bulkley above the Telkwa River should be fishable by Friday (a little more rain in the forecast Friday…) Steelhead fishing was excellent last week for most people in the Bulkley. More challenging in the Morice.


KISPIOX

Same story. River is high and dirty. Maybe fishable by Friday.


KITIMAT

Water level is high but fishable. The Steelhead are mostly spawned and heading back to the ocean but Chinook fishing is starting. First Chinook was caught last week!


SKEENA

River is pretty high and dirty but has already started to drop and is just starting to clear. Coho fishing has been pretty good when the river is in shape.

 

FISHING REPORTS - September 22, 2016

LAKES

As the weather cools, fish in lakes begin to put the feed on before winter-makes for great fishing!


SALTWATER

Still some Coho being caught in the Douglas Channel. Halibut and crabbing has still been decent.


BABINE RIVER

Tough fishing this past week but as the river cleared up fishing has improved.


BULKLEY & MORICE RIVERS

River is in excellent shape. With the water settling down the fishing has picked up. Coho are still being caught and there have been some good steelhead caught this past week.
The river is quite busy particularly above the Telkwa. The Morice is also in great shape and fishing well.


KISPIOX

Water is a little high but clarity is good. Fishing has gotten better in the past couple days.


KITIMAT

River is clear but pretty low. The best, most productive fishing has been as the tide comes in, or early in the morning.


SKEENA

River is still a bit high and visibility is not great. Some fish are being caught for sure.

September 2016


FISHING REPORTS - September 15, 2016

LAKES

Babine Lake is closed for Sockeye. Francois Lake has some nice Rainbows that get pretty big and make for great dinners! Check out some of the smaller lakes like Dennis Lake, Round Lake, Helen Lake, Ross Lake, etc. for some great trout fishing before winter hits. The Stellako River is a world class trout fishing river and is an excellent alternative if our rivers are unfishable.


SALTWATER

Halibut and crabbing has been pretty good. Coho fishing is a bit tougher but most people have been fishing deeper than normal and doing well.


BABINE RIVER

River is back in shape and Steelheading has been average. Some big, big fish caught.


BULKLEY & MORICE RIVERS

Water is a bit high but clarity is great. Trout Creek, Chicken Creek, and Telkwa have been doing quite well for Coho. Steelheading has been a bit tougher but almost 9000 have passed through Moricetown, so they are in the river, we just need to catch them!


KISPIOX

Water is high and slightly coloured but definitely fishable. Coho fishing has been good-they are big this year, but many are already coloured. Steelheading was fairly good earlier in the week but has slowed down a bit. Rained pretty hard on Thursday and conditions could change.


KITIMAT

Coho fishing has been doing very well. River clarity is great and when it does blow out, it cleans up within 24hours.


SKEENA

River has dropped a bit and cleared but lots of rain forecasted for Friday could change things. Sockeye fishing is closed. Steelhead and Coho fishing has been decent. Copper is clean and clear as of Thursday.

Water is a bit high but clarity is great. Trout Creek, Chicken Creek, and Telkwa have been doing quite well for Coho. Steelheading has been tough for most people this week. A few really big fish caught!
         

 

FISHING REPORTS - September 8, 2016

LAKES

Fall is a great time to fish the lakes as the fish will be plumping up for the cold winter. Babine Lake is open till the 15th for Sockeye and people are still doing decent and most of the fish are still in shape.


SALTWATER

Douglas Channel- Fishing has been really hit and miss. Coho are being caught deep- like 100-140 feet down! Not many rock-cod being caught. Halibut has been hit and miss. (all or nothing!) Crabbing is phenomenal.


BABINE RIVER

Fall is here, which means Steelheading on the Babine!


BULKLEY & MORICE RIVERS

At the time of writing the Bulkley below Telkwa has about 2 feet of visibility, and 4 feet above the Telkwa confluence. The water is higher than we would normally see this time of year, which is astonishing, but we needed the water! Coho fishing is still good in the Trout Creek area and in Telkwa. Steelhead are in the system but fishing has been tough. Clarity on the Morice is fine, but again, tough fishing for Steelhead.


KISPIOX

Water is high (again astonishing) and borderline fishable. Coho fishing is still fairly good. Big fish. Steelhead are here but fishing is spotty.


KITIMAT

Rained yesterday and the water has come up but the river is still in good shape. Coho fishing has been good. On the lower river people are fishing with the tide and doing well..


SKEENA

Skeena is high and dirty. Not fishable. Steelhead and Coho are in, Sockeye closes on the 15th.


FISHING REPORTS - September 1, 2016

LAKES

With most of the rivers high and dirty, lakes are a great alternative. Babine Lake is open till the 15th for Sockeye and has been doing decent. Check outgofishbc.com for tips and depth-maps on some of the popular lakes.


SALTWATER

Out of Rupert the Halibut fishing is still going strong but the Salmon market is dropping off drastically as most fish are in the rivers now. Douglas Channel salmon has slowed down in the past week or two as a huge number of Coho have moved into the river. People are still catching Coho farther out of the Channel- and they have been huge!


BABINE RIVER

Sockeye fishing is closed. Upper Babine will be clean and good for Steelheading.


BULKLEY & MORICE RIVERS

Bulkley is high and dirty due to heavy rains. The Morice and upper Bulkley are coloured but in better shape than below the Telkwa. Steelheading has been decent, numbers are good. Coho fishing has been ok. Reminder that the rivers are Classified and Steelhead Stamp mandatory. Black bear still hanging around Trout Creek.


KISPIOX

Water is high and dirty. Steelhead are in though; try fishing close to shore or at the mouths of creeks.


KITIMAT

River has risen but is still in decent shape. Northern Coho are in and fishing has been good!


SKEENA

Water has come up a lot and is dirty. Steelhead and Coho fishing has been pretty good. Sockeye fishing is still open till the 15th. Copper is blown-out as well. Kalum would be the best bet this weekend.

A misty morning on the Bulkley.

FISHING REPORTS - July 20, 2016

LAKES

Lakes are lots of fun and provide a variety of small fish. Some kids had fun at Grizzly Lake near Houston- catching 24 rainbow in one day! Round Lake had a surface temperature of 23 degrees and fishing was tough. Some good reports from Babine Lake though; lots of char caught! Meziadin Lake Sockeye is open but so far has been slow.


SALTWATER

Great reports of Coho being caught, still some Chinook as well. Bottom fishing has been decent.


BABINE RIVER

Rainbow fishing still doing well using mayfly patterns. Babine River opens August 1 for Sockeye.


BULKLEY & MORICE RIVERS

Bulkley River is still very dirty with the silt coming from the Little Bulkley. Telkwa is also blown out. The Morice is clean and clear and good for fishing. Some Springs being caught but not a lot.


KISPIOX

River is in nice shape and some Springs are still being caught. No retention of Springs after July 31 on the Kispiox so now is the time to get out there!


KITIMAT

Lots of Chum and Pinks and still a few Springs yet. Water level spiked on the 14th and has been up and down since then. Nice thing about the Kitimat though is it cleans up quickly if the weather is good. For a chance to win a Drift-boat Fishing Trip, sign up for Ron Wakita's fishing report: http://reliableguideandcharters.com 


SKEENA

Skeena is dirty but fishable and cleaning up. Some Sockeye are being caught in the Hazelton area and West of that as well. Hopefully there is a fresh bunch of Chinooks coming in with the higher water. A good number of Steelhead also showing up already, so get out and fish!

 

 


 

FISHING REPORTS - July 14, 2016

LAKES

Babine Lake near Red Bluff has been good for Rainbow fishing. People are using Trout Killers and blue- Blue Foxspinners with a couple of split shots as weight.


SALTWATER

Fishing has been great for most! Halibut has been excellent and the salmon have been plentiful. Lots of different species out there right now- Chinook, Chum, Sockeye, Coho, and Pinks.


BABINE RIVER

The Upper Babine (between Babine Lake and Nilkitkwa Lake) is fishing very well using size fourteen dry mayfly patterns. Nilkitkwa Lake weed beds are also fishing well using mayflies and travelling sedge patterns. The Lower River section downstream from Nilkitkwa Lake is still holding golden stonefly eating trout although the weather has not been ideal for hatches due to rain and cooler temperatures. Looks like the weather forecast past Tuesday would be favourable for mayflies and stoneflies. (Thanks to Pierce Clegg for the descriptive information!)


BULKLEY & MORICE RIVERS

Lots of rain=blown-out. Water came up 1.3' today and is chocolate brown. Chinook fishing before this has been pretty slow, hopefully this bump in water will change that! Morice has come up 1' - 1.5' and is muddy as well.


KISPIOX

Water is cloudy but not high. Water came up 1/2 foot yesterday but is already dropping and looks good....so far. Chinook are in the river and fishing has been okay but not great.


KITIMAT

Water has come up 1.5 feet today and is brown. This river cleans up quickly if the weather cooperates and right now is a superb time to fish the Kitimat. Chinook, Pink, Chum, and Coho can all be caught right now! Before the water rose fishing for Pinks and Chum was especially good. For a chance to win a Drift-boat Fishing Trip, sign up for Ron Wakita's fishing report: http://reliableguideandcharters.com 


SKEENA

Skeena has come up 1.5' and is a bit cloudy but still totally fishable. Chinook still being caught throughout but it has been 'spotty'. Sockeye starting to come through as well.

 

 

 

 


 

FISHING REPORTS - July 7, 2016

LAKES

Rainbow Alley fishing has dropped off with the cooler weather/rain, but with a couple warm days would come new stonefly hatches and therefore better fishing. The lakes were producing this past weekend and many people were out (most in the rain!). Some nice Char and Rainbows were caught in the various lakes.


SALTWATER

Douglas Channel-- Ocean fishing has been good. Bit of everything being caught and most people doing quite well.
Rupert--- Some excellent fishing to be had! Chinook, Halibut, Cod, Coho, Pinks, Sockeye... you name it, its out there. Most boats are doing well.



BULKLEY & MORICE RIVERS

Bulkley is coloured but fishable and getting better. Lower Bulkley was blown out but is also cleaning up quickly. Its great to get the much needed water in the system! Some Chinook being caught but not tons.


KISPIOX

Water level and colour is excellent. Chinook are being caught.


KITIMAT

Chum fishing has been excellent, Chinook has been decent, and Pinks are in the river too! Rain brought up the river on the weekend (1.35m) but has now dropped significantly to .90m below Hirsh Creek.

For a chance to win a Drift-boat Fishing Trip, sign up for Ron Wakita's fishing report: http://reliableguideandcharters.com 


SKEENA

Rain hit the system and muddied the waters heavily on Tuesday, but the river has cleared up a lot and is fishable and getting better. Fishing before the extra water was slow, so hopefully the cooler weather and increase of water will change that! A beauty 59lb Chinook was caught this past weekend on the lower Skeena, and some Sockeye are also starting to be caught.

 

 

 

 

 


 

FISHING REPORTS - June 29, 2016

LAKES

Rainbow fishing has been good in Rainbow Alley. There have been 2 dry fly patterns that have been hot and we stock both! Char fishing has been productive in Babine Lake and this weekend is a great one to take the family out lake fishing! If you want a world-class trout stream experience, take the 2 hour trip to the Stellako River. Load up on small dry flies and have a wonderful experience!


SALTWATER

Douglas Channel-- Ocean fishing has been a bit spotty, but mostly on the good side. Some beauty Chinook still being caught. Halibut and bottom-fishing has been good and Coho are just starting.
Rupert--- Chinook are still being caught and Coho are just starting up around Dundas Island. The odd Sockeye also being caught. Reports of some huge halibut being caught too!


BABINE RIVER

Mostly fly fishing for rainbow right now. Water is very low. Stone flies are hatching and the trout are feeding on them.


BULKLEY & MORICE RIVERS

Bulkley and Morice rivers are both in excellent shape; low and clear. Fish are seen rolling but not much has been caught.


KISPIOX

Water is low and clear. Chinook are in the river and being caught throughout, but mostly in the higher regions.


KITIMAT

Water is very low and clear. Weather has been hot and the best fishing has been deep pools during the morning or afternoon high-tide. Some beauty Chinook being caught but with the low water it has been tougher. Chums and Pinks in the river too!
For a chance to win a Drift-boat Fishing Trip, sign up for Ron Wakita's fishing report: http://reliableguideandcharters.com 


SKEENA

Water is low and clear. Weather has been very hot and fishing has been most productive in the cooler parts of the days. As of last Friday Chinook fishing has slowed down a bit. Canada Day is this coming Friday and there is sure to be a lot of anglers out there! Remember that the whole Skeena is Classified, and the Skeena 4 (above the Copper River) is also Steelhead Stamp mandatory.
 



ATTENTION

There has been a mistake on the previous Fishing Report. Here is the corrected information for SKEENA: 

Water is low and clear. Weather has been very hot and fishing has been most productive in the cooler parts of the days. As of last Friday Chinook fishing has slowed down a bit. Canada Day is this coming Friday and there is sure to be a lot of anglers out there!

Remember that Skeena 1 (from the ocean to the Exchamsiks) and Skeena 3 (Terrace, Ferry Island) are never Classified, all other sections (2 & 4) require a classified water licence.

Below is a map of Skeena with the different classified and non-classified sections.

LAKES

Babine Lake has been fishing excellent for Sockeye. Still lots moving into the lake and most of them are in great shape.


SALTWATER

Douglas Channel fishing really well for Coho, Halibut has been hit and miss.


BABINE RIVER

Sockeye fishing has been good and the fish are still quite silver. Sockeye fishing on the River ends August 31st.


BULKLEY & MORICE RIVERS

The Bulkley is low and clear! Coho and Steelhead are the main attractions right now. Blue is the 'hot' colour. Some beauty Steelhead have been caught on the dry fly! Be bear aware- there has been one hanging out at Trout Creek.


KISPIOX

Water is still too low and clear for productive fishing. Most fish are most likely waiting at the mouth of the Kispiox.


KITIMAT

Fishing has been tough due to very low, clear waters. Rain is in the forecast so hopefully more Coho come through as the water bumps up.


SKEENA

Fishing has been decent but we are in need of some cooler weather and more water. Copper River is blown out and the Skeena is a bit coloured below that, but in great shape above the Copper. Still quite a few Sockeye being caught, some big Coho, and some beauty Steelhead! Just a reminder that Skeena 4 is both Classified and Steelhead Stamp mandatory as of July 1..


FISHING REPORTS - AUGUST 17, 2016


SALTWATER

Fishing for coho in the salt has been really good! Still a few springs caught as well. Halibut fishing has been really good. Salt Water fishing is coming to an end fairly quickly now! Unfortunately.


BABINE RIVER

Sockeye fishing in Babine River has been ok.



BABINE LAKE

There are still sockeye moving in the lake. Green flashers seems to be the ticket at the moment….


BULKLEY & MORICE RIVERS

The Bulkley is in great shape. Coho are in. Fishing for them seems to be best west of Smithers. A few have been caught in Telkwa and Houston. Steelhead fishing is starting.


KISPIOX

We have never seen the Kispiox this low and clear. Not many fish in the river. Most fish are most likely waiting at the mouth of the Kispiox.


SKEENA

Skeena is low and a little coloured. The Skeena is the place to be at the moment. Sockeye are still coming up in numbers. Cohos caught at Anderson Flats. Steelhead also caught in good numbers in the Skeena.

       
       

FISHING REPORTS - AUGUST 11, 2016


BABINE RIVER

Fly fishing for sockeye in the Babine River has been fair. Water level is a little bit higher than expected - especially with a low snow pack year.



BABINE LAKE

Sockeye fishing has been decent on Babine Lake.



BULKLEY & MORICE RIVERS

The Bulkley is in awesome shape. Coho are starting to show up. A number of steelhead have gone through Moricetown. Still some springs hanging around Moricetown as well.


KISPIOX

The water is extremely low in the Kispiox. fish are piling up at the mouth - waiting for the water to bump.



SKEENA

The Skeena is in nice shape. This is a great time of year to be on the MIGHTY SKEENA. Sockeye, coho, pinks, steelhead are all making their journey east. Sockeye fishing has been really good in the Hazelton area as well as west of Hazelton at the “Sockeye Bar” past Kitwanga Some cohos caught as well at Anderson Flats. Steelhead hook ups have been plenty up and down the Skeena.


 

FISHING REPORTS - August 4, 2016

LAKES

Babine Lake is open for Sockeye retention and fishing has been steady. Char fishing has been good in the local lakes.


SALTWATER

Halibut fishing has been excellent and so has the salmon fishing. Lots of variety: all 5 species available in the Douglas Channel!


BABINE RIVER

Sockeye fishing has been steady but not 'hot'. River levels are a bit high as the lake is higher than last year. Use a T-18 sink tip to get to the bottom. Fly-fishing only.


BULKLEY & MORICE RIVERS

Bulkley and Morice are in great shape and water levels are good. Coho are in and being caught as high as Telkwa so far, which is earlier than normal! Still a couple Chinook being caught. Steelhead already showing up at Moricetown.


KISPIOX

Water is really low and fishing is tough. Coho and Steelhead are in but not being caught due to the water levels.


KITIMAT

Chinook retention is over but the Pink fishing has been excellent and Coho are moving in and being caught more and more! Still some Chum out there too.


SKEENA

Sockeye fishing has been great, lots of Coho being caught, and quite a few Steelhead already moving through-although catching them has been tougher. The Steelhead returns for the Skeena watershed look very promising for this season! Water levels and clarity are great and now is the time to fish!

           
       
Thanks Jason Krauskopf for the beautiful photos of your Sockeye Fishing Fun on the Babine!

FISHING REPORTS - July 28, 2016

LAKES

Meziadin Lake has been very poor for Sockeye so far this year, hopefully Babine Lake produces more come August. Still lots of trout, cut-throat, and dollies being caught in the various lakes.


SALTWATER

Saltwater fishing has been great overall. Springs pretty much done but the halibut and Coho fishing has been excellent.


BABINE RIVER

Unless the DFO state otherwise, August 1st the Babine River and Lake are open for sockeye retention. Numbers look good and quite a few fish have already entered the lake. Please check the regulations as part of the river is fly-fishing only.


BULKLEY & MORICE RIVERS

The Bulkley is finally dropping and clearing! Springs being caught in Moricetown. Morice is clean and clear. Some Springs are being caught, mostly higher upstream. Check the regulations as there are some closed sections.


KISPIOX

In excellent condition! Still some Springs left, but there is no retention as of August 1st.


KITIMAT

Big spike in the water on the 24th but things have settled nicely now. Still some Springs around but retention ends August 1st. Pink fishing has been great and the kids love it! A great fish to get hooked on. For a chance to win a Drift-boat Fishing Trip, sign up for Ron Wakita's fishing report: http://reliableguideandcharters.com


SKEENA

Water is finally in shape again. Springs are still being caught but not many. Sockeye are in but catching has been hit and miss. Kitwanga Back Road or Ferry Island are great places to take your family and try your luck at catching some Sockeye.

          
A little family-fish time on Meziadin. Didn't catch many but the kids were pumped just to haul one in and get splashed a bit.

fishing report

 

FISHING REPORTS - June 14, 2016

LAKES

Rainbow Alley is still fishing but hasn't been that 'hot'. Round Lake had some action this past weekend; reports were the kids on the dock out-fished the boats on the lake! Both parties had lots of fun with nice rainbows being caught on the lake and mostly suckers caught off the dock. A beauty cutthroat was also caught trolling a leech pattern. Don't forget that Ross Lake has a nice casting dock and that as people rush to fish the rivers that are opening soon, the lakes remain a wonderful spot to catch smaller fish! Take your family out on Dennis Lake, Helen Lake, Morin Lake, Irrigation, etc, for some great times!


SALTWATER

Douglas Channel-- It has been very windy and many boats are staying home this past week. Those who make it out have been very impressed with the size of the Chinook being caught. Bottom fishing and crabbing has been great, and some Coho are already being caught.

Rupert- Fishing has been good. Bottom fishing is producing some nice halibut and rock fish. Some beauty Chinook have been caught and the odd Coho as well.


BABINE RIVER

Open this Thursday, June 16th! Get out there and try out a dry line, tapered leader, and stonefly imitations.


BULKLEY & MORICE RIVERS

Open this Thursday, June 16th! There is an early run of Chinook that come through on their way to the Morice. This is one of the few years that we will be able to fish for them! Water is low and clear, although at the time of writing it is currently raining, so that could change.


KISPIOX

Open this Thursday, June 16th!


KITIMAT

More and more Chinook being caught. Mostly between 15-25lbs. Water level below Hirsh Creek currently dropping to 1.15m but will most likely bump up a bit with the current rain. For a chance to win a Drift-boat Fishing Trip, sign up for Ron Wakita's fishing report: http://reliableguideandcharters.com


SKEENA

For this time of year, the water is the best and warmest it has been in 77 years! Lots of people out Chinook fishing. Fish are definitely being caught but it has been slow. Water level at Usk has dropped to 5m, but current weather will bring it up a bit again.
