You got that right Hotrod, usually the last week of april sees some large springs hit the kalum and mix in with the steelies. I agree Randy is a top notch guide, I used his services on a couple of occasions back when he worked for Noel and Cosmo at Northwest fishing guides, he had a brother that was guiding for Noel aswell I think his name was Pat. My favorite time for springs is the last two weeks of july, good numbers of fish in the river (chinook, sockeye and pink) and a good possibility of hooking steelhead and coho. At the same time the Kitimat chum fishery will be in full swing and there is usually some big chinook still coming in until the end of the month when it closes for springs. Good Luck.
