FISHING REPORTS - July 28, 2016
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 fishing has been great overall. Springs pretty much done but the halibut and Coho fishing has been excellent.
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.
In excellent condition! Still some Springs left, but there is no retention as of August 1st.
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
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.
