Thank you to our friends at JigBox for the update:
The Skeena River is in excellent shape. Great flow and colour. The water also seems a lot cooler than last year which is good news for the fish. A good number of chinook have been caught downstream of Cedarvale. Bar fishing seems to be pretty productive (try smaller spin n'glows???
Thank you to Blaine and friends for the great photo with Skeena Chinooks! And congrats to Blaine and crew for the one year anniversary of their Brewery - Smithers Brewery. GREAT SPOT TO STOP BY FOR A BEVERAGE!
The Bulkley is in awesome shape for June 26. A few fish have been spotted at the Rock. We have not heard of too many people catching fish on the Bulkley yet. But the Bulkley / Morice are open to chinook fish (check regs for area closures).
Babine Lake has been on fire for char fishing. Use an Apex or an FST. Thank you to Tyler Davidson and Emily Davidson for the great photo.
With the end of school fast approaching, the kids have been asking when they can get out on the water. Like most of us, they are acutely aware that the end of June is a great time to be out fishing. The weather is slowly getting better and the fish are coming in hot! We've seen great fishing all the way down the north coast over the past couple of weeks. Around Dundas Island, we've seen loads of big chinook rolling through with a mix of coho showing up. We have seen great fishing around Squatatie and Edye Pass and even had reports that its been good around north Tugwell Island. Further south, we've seen good numbers of Kitimat River fish running down the channel. I spoke with one angler on the dock who had caught a 34lb fish only 100m off the end of the warf at MK Bay marina. The Kitimat fish will continue to be in the channel for the next couple of weeks and places like Money Point and South Sue will be hot spots. We hooked our first coho of the year last week so these feisty fish should be showing up in numbers soon.
