Fishing good for Steelhead but you have to  know where and how to fish for them. You may want to consider hiring a guide to learn how? If so please contact me anytime I will get you set-up with the BEST. High rez water condition pic posted Oct 7th. To view cast on the link below.. Reg: Sockeye closed September 15th. It was a very good run this year, near record so hope we had lots of happy anglers. Reg: Chinook closure: Aug 7 - Dec 31 in a zone from Lakelse River mouth upstream to the Skeena River Overpass (New Hwy) Bridge) at Ferry Island.

 

Pic taken October 22nd

Flood Watch: We've had lots of rain and it put most rivers out of shape. Rain stopped now and the forecast is for sun and clouds for next week. Because of the cooler temperatures most of the rain stayed in the mountains as snow...but...if it rains heavy again and temperatures warm up and the snow cap melts, we could be in for a flood. It has happened in the past and the floods were so severe it took out highway bridges.

 

On my left is April Vokey of flygal. April is authoring a book summarized as a reflective novel based on the history of our sport, and both its evolution & migration from the United Kingdom to North America’s west coast. She interviewed me September 16th regarding the history of Sportfishing and guiding in northwest British Columbia. The whole interview was recorded by Nick Pujic (on my right) of Vantage Point Media House for a television series on WFN. Got to say we had a lot of fun and it was hard to shut me up! I will keep you updated how this progresses. I am sorry, at this time, I cannot remember the names of the other folks in the crew. I will get them for you later.

As promised here are the names of the rest of the crew: Victor Cooper, Brock Tompkins, Yoshi Aoki, Adrienne Comeau and Catherine Laflamme (who took the photo).

Kitimat Lodge fishing report - October 25, 2014

 

Today was the best day for the river swinging, as the clouds cleared and the snow dusted the mountain tops seen here from the Skeena River in British Columbia.

 

Skeena River Fishing Report

It’s been a rough few days for steelhead fishing, with the high water as you may know. Fishing Skeena country as a paying fly fishing client puts the pressure on us guides! Sitting at the lodge telling stories and tying flies is short lived.

 

 

 

And topping the day is a pair of steelhead swung by Spey anglers. Wow!

 

With the rivers really shaping up, November will be a bonanza of Lunker Steelhead.

High rez condition pic posted Oct. 7th. Water at the highway bridge is high but very fishable. Upper end  is in great shape! I am getting good reports; lots of Steelhead being caught. The Spey fly rod is working well. It is just a matter how knowing which pools and runs they are holding in. If you need a guide to show you how and where just contact me anytime. Chinook closed August 7th.

Lakelse River:

Sun Nov 23/14 5:15am

Coho fishing is over for another year. I think it was a good run. The Steelhead fishing is really starting to pick up. In the upper end the Steelhead seem to come in behind the spawning Coho. Tip: Fly fishing is good technique. Instead of a fly I would use a bright red cocky as I knew the Steelhead were eating the Coho eggs that would escape from the Coho reds. Sometimes in the deeper runs I would tie on a flatfish plug and feed it into the deep pool.  I know it is not a fly but no problem as the “fly-only” time is from Mar 1 to May 31. Also in the deeper runs I liked float fishing the corky with a little white wool. My friends and I really liked to fish the upper end this time of year while we waited for the Kalum River levels to drop so we could use our drifts and not have to compete with the jet boats. We would run our drift boats all winter and for many years the Steelhead fishing was simply outstanding and I know it still is. Good luck!

 

Zymoetz (Copper) River:

Sun Nov 23/14 5:13am

Water is good shape! Steelhead fishing is pretty good. High rez condition pic posted Oct. 7th. When wet fly fishing give the Steelhead a chance to react when the fly comes drifting by. Dry fly works pretty good too. And for conventional here is a Tip: Float fishing the Pink Worm works very well in this river. Need a guide  for 2014 in either the Class one or Class two section contact me anytime.

Douglas Channel:

Tue Aug 26/14 5:32am

Chinook fishing in the channel is basically over as all of the fish have moved into their natal rivers, although one has a chance to catch "feeder springs", these would be smaller fish. Coho fishing is slow; they are all heading for their home rivers...and their home rivers don't have much water in them. Coho are being caught but way down the channel. Halibut and other Bottom fish are being landed in good numbers and lots Dungeness Crab. Now when I say this fishing is good you got to know what to fish with, where to fish and how. Pink and Sockeye are out their too. My suggestion is to book a charter guide for trip or two, then you will be up to speed how to do it on your own.

Recommended Fly Fishing Gear:

 

Courtesy Chad Black Nicholas Dean Outdoors

 

In the low water conditions of early April, we generally used light sink tips to cover the shallow riffles and tailouts where Steelhead were holding.  Type 3 and Type 6 tips were generally all that was needed for most conditions.  With the higher flows of late Spring, and in particular on the tributary rivers, we've also been using Rio's MOW tips in a variety of weights and lengths to get the fly down to the fish.  The Heavy MOW tips, made of T-14 material, have been particularly useful, in lengths of 5, 7.5, 10 and 12.5 ft.

 

As with March, best colours have been pink, black, blue and orange.  When fishing the Skeena and its tribs, larger flies from 2.5" to 4" in length have been most productive.  Smaller flies in a variety of weights in the 1" to 2.5" range have worked the best on coastal rivers. 

When targeting Steelhead, we've been using rods in the 12.5' to 13.5' ft range, for a 7 or 8 weight line on the larger rivers. Our personal favourites for this fishing include the 7126 Sage TCX and the 8139 Loomis Dredger.  When targeting Chinook specifically, we've been using heavier 9 and 10 weight rods in the 13' to 15' range.  Single hand rods and switch rods have gotten the nod on the coastal rivers.  In particular, I had a chance to fish a 8116 Sage One rod and can confirm that it's a very good rod that's ideally suited to the coast!

 

Rods, Reels, Lines: For Steelhead - Spey rods in the 12' to 14' range, with a Skagit head to match.  A 7126 TCX paired with a 500 grain Skagit Flight and Loomis  8139 Dredger with a 525 grain Skagit are excellent choices.  A good quality disc or cork drag reel (e.g. Islander and Ross) with a minimum of 150 yards of 30 lb backing.  For Spring Chinook Salmon, same as above, except with heavier gear - 9 weight minimum, 10 weight better.

Sink Tips and Tippet: A 15' Type III and 15' Type VI for most shallow water applications, and a variety of MOW tips - medium (T-11) and heavy (T-14) for deeper and/or heavier water.  Always 15 lb Maxima Ultragreen for Steelhead.  Increase tippet to 20 lb Maxima Ultragreen if targeting Spring Chinook.

Flies: Idylwilde String Leech, Bunny Tube, Marabou Tube and Popsickle, in shrimp pink, cerise, black, blue and orange.

Here's our latest addition to the fleet for 2014. That's right we are now operating 2 - 30 foot Kingfisher guide boats. This one is tricked out with all the same options and quality gear as our first boat. Luxury fishing on the West Coast of Haida Gwaii just got even better!

 

Reserve Your Dates for 2015

We are already over 50% booked and prime dates are going quickly. If you’re thinking about taking the family on a great fishing adventure or looking for a hard core fishing trip with the boys next summer, Avid Sport fishing's all inclusive trips have all bases covered. Round trip airfare from Vancouver, exclusive beachfront lodging and amazing meals combined with BC’s best Chinook salmon fishing and experienced guides make for a “Top Notch” fishing trip that is second to none. Some exciting news for groups that require 2 boats (6 to 8 guests) is the addition of another 30 foot Kingfisher guide boat. This allows us to offer a truly unique experience with 2 of the nicest, most comfortable, most seaworthy and just plain “fishy” boats in all of Haida Gwaii/Queen Charlotte Islands. Predictions for 2014 Chinook (King) salmon runs look very good with more 4 and 5 year old fish returning meaning bigger average size than in 2013.

Please contact us to discuss dates and join Avid Sportfishing for another season of great fishing, and good times on the West Coast of Haida Gwaii in 2015!

Fishing report for October 26, 2014

After three weeks of marginal water conditions, most rivers are back in shape! Water levels are still fairly high (who would have thought after super low water in September???). Weather forecast is for cooler temperatures which will help all rivers drop even further! Steelhead fishing should be stellar over the next few weeks!

 

Fri Oct 17/14 5:10am

Fishing report for October 15, 2014

Lakes - Little to no angling pressure on many of the lakes in the Bulkley Valley. Fish are aggressive this time of year and fun to fish for if steelheading is unfeasible.

 

Bulkley -  Section below Telkwa is very murky. Upper section is fishing better but has many people, fishing is decent.

 

Morice - River got some much needed water, maybe help bring in some fresher fish. Lots of anglers fishing the cleaner water, having good results.

 

Kispiox - River was dropping but heavy rains are forecasted for that region over the next couple days.

 

Babine - Also got a little bump of much need water. Fishing has been okay for most.

Hey Noel, This weekend was COLD! The steelies still wanted to play, but you had to get your fly through all the ice floating down. This is my 13 year old son, Nathan, with his first steelhead. He got it on his second cast, go figure. Hope the winter treats you well.

Paul Reinhardt, Calgary, AB

 

Mon Nov 17/14 5:10am

Hi Noel, we have been to Terrace this year (group of 3) but we decided to give it a try without a guide. We were fishing Skeena and Copper. We did not do so well but nevertheless it was a good adventure. All in all I caught few steelheads and Coho. You will find few pics attached to this email.

 

Best regards, Marcin SEJBUK

 

Fri Nov 14/14 5:12am

Hi Folks, first off we would like to sincerely thank Vitalini Renato (above) for his very kind words, "Dear Noel, dreaming of steelhead and thinking a lot to my first trip to BC last April. I crossed your homepage. Pretty great fishing information of the whole area around Terrace! Just to say thanks for your patience and work for this great site!!!!"

 

The Kitimat River Steelhead had a length of 41.5 inches and a girth of 24 inches. Mark of the BC Fish & Wildlife branch estimated the weight around 34.5-pounds. What a GREAT catch Renato...and may we say you are WELCOME BACK anytime!

CFIA exempt from scientific protocol?

 

Hello, Below is a link to a letter I wrote to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) in response to yet another announcement that there is no ISA virus in British Columbia. ISA virus is a salmon virus in the influenza family that is deadly to salmon and associated with salmon farms.

 

In their recent declaration, the CFIA fails to tell us what test they used, fails to inform us why the same labs got positives in 2011 and why those results should be ignored, and they fail to address the fact that two out of the three labs they used included a disclaimer with their test results.

However, ignoring all this they state "This evidence is used to support scientifically based control measures, for the purposes of safe domestic and international trade."

Canada has gained an international reputation for destroying scientific libraries and muzzling scientists.

 

This has sparked international condemnation and unprecedented response
by Canadian scientists.

 

Now the CFIA is declaring British Columbia ISA virus-free in absence of the most basic scientific protocol. 

http://alexandramorton.typepad.com/alexandra_morton/2014/11/dear-cfia-what-test-did-you-use.html 

 

Please consider writing to the bureaucrats and politicians listed at the end of my blog.  If we abandon science completely in Canada we stand lose our health, environment, standard of living, and pretty much everything. Surely there is a way to enjoy the benefits of commerce without entering a new sort of Dark Ages.

On November 5, Skeena First Nation leaders held a press conference in Vancouver to highlight their opposition to the Petronas LNG plant proposed for Lelu Island in the Skeena estuary.

 

The proposed Petronas Pacific NorthWest LNG development on Lelu Island, on the estuary of the Skeena River, would require massive dredging of areas that have been identified as critical to the health and abundance of Skeena salmon.

 

This site was selected for industrial development without consultation with First Nations and Skeena communities.

SAVE Lelu Island and Skeena wild salmon from LNG

 

Will you sign the declaration to save Lelu Island from LNG?

 

The proposed Petronas Pacific NorthWest LNG development on Lelu Island, on the estuary of the Skeena River, would require massive dredging of areas that have been identified as critical to the health and abundance of Skeena salmon.

 

A study by the federal government in 1973, as well as recent science, confirms that altering or destroying these habitats will significantly damage the abundance and health of Skeena salmon.

 

This site was selected for industrial development without consultation with First Nations and Skeena communities.

West Coast of Vancouver Islands, BC

Rogers Fishing Lodge

 

Sun Nov 23/14 5:12am

 

Owners of this Lodge say they already have over 1000 guests booked for the 2014 season. In total in 2013 they did 1160 guests, so things are already pacing ahead of last year. Certainly a real positive for any potential Buyer to have a turn-key business

 

 

 

 

 

Rodgers Fishing Lodge is located on the west coast of Vancouver Island about 90 miles due west of Campbell River in Esperanza Inlet. Rodgers is one of the busiest fishing lodges on the B.C. coast, entertaining over 1000 guests a year. They also enjoy one of the longest seasons on the coast, operating 19 weeks in 2013.

 

This will be their 31st year in the Sport Fishing business and their 20th year in Esperanza Inlet. Rodgers has shown a remarkable rate of growth over the past 3 years due mainly to an aggressive, innovative and successful marketing programme. Their gross revenue has more than doubled since 2010 and 2014 looks to be another banner year with over 550 guests already booked.

 

The Lodge has a location second to none as it is ideally situated to take advantage of some of the most outstanding fishing opportunities on the BC coast for Salmon, Halibut, Bottom Fish and Tuna. The addition of Tuna fishing this year will add a new dimension to the business and will add increased revenue to the months of August and September. The Tuna fishery is going to be a huge breakthrough in the future for West Coast fishing lodges. Rodgers Lodge is perfectly positioned to take advantage of it. Historically, the Tuna in their migration pattern will follow the warm water temperatures that occur along the Continental Shelf. In Rodgers Lodge’s location the Continental Shelf is just 12 to 15 miles offshore as opposed to 50 miles offshore for places like Tofino and Bamfield.

 

Black Bear and Bald Eagles are regularly seen by the lodge. They have the largest colonies of Sea Otters on the coast and the Gray, Orca and Humpback Whales pass by on their way to and from the Bering Sea.

 

The owners love the business and wish that they were 30 years younger. However, they feel that it is now time to turn the reins over to someone who shares the same passion for the outdoors and who is looking for a wonderful rewarding lifestyle.

 

Asking price $1,199,000

 

Please contact Noel Gyger if you are interested.
