FISHING REPORTS - September 15, 2016
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.
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.
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!
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.
Coho fishing has been doing very well. River clarity is great and when it does blow out, it cleans up within 24hours.
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!
