Good news, I have been watching the Kitimat water level and there looked to be a little bump over the last couple days. Hopefully we start to see a warming trend soon, for the steelies and to get the local lakes opened up.
Just recieved my regular spamming from a Kalum guide, seems they are getting some nice fish so far and not just fall tomatoes, decent amounts of spring chromers. This is the sleeper of the Skeena, big steelhead all year and MASSIVE Chinook, some as early as late April. I would love to head back up there soon as well, probably next season.
Well wasn't the trip i was hopin for, but that's fishin. So cold & the wind was insane. River is very low. Hooked into 2 but couldnt get a good hookset when the line has such a huge bow in it from the wind.
Apparently on the previous weekend they got a bit of water and fishing was good for 2 days, till river dropped again. Forecast for this week calls for sunny warm days and cold nights, so that should bump it up a bit, but not blow it out.
Am probably heading to Rupert in next couple of weeks to do some work on the customs area @ the port. Will be there a couple weeks, so will hopefully get out on the Salt for a day and try for some Steel in Kitimat again.
Also, Kalum & lower Skeena are supposebly fishing well for Steel & Springs........probably give that a go too! Jobs going to take a long time........since I'll be gone fishin :cheers:
PS: there's a monster log jam 300 yds above "powerlines", apparently cant portage around either. Was told Wakita & fellow guides wanted to go break it up, but DFO wouldn't let 'em.
