Commentary: HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE We have had lots of snow and cold temperatures this winter, so fishing has been a difficult. Those who ventured out have been rewarded with some great winter Steelhead. If you go stay warm and dry and be safe.
Skeena River: Water is clean. Some great Steelhead can still be had. Plus some good Trout Fishing. Reg: all wild Steelhead everywhere in British Columbia are catch and release.
Kalum River: Both the lower and upper sections are in good shape. A good run of Steelhead is in the river now. I have reports of some good catches.
Lakelse River: The water is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead, Trout is fantastic.
Zymoetz (Copper) River: Water is in good shape but lots of snow to contend with. Too bad as the Steelhead fishing has been excellent. Facts: Last year we had a record run of Steelhead, let's hope at least we have another good run this year….so far so good.
Kitimat River: Trout fishing is very good.

Bio: My fishing and guiding history I was born in Smithers, B.C. Canada on December 25, 1946. I grew up there and fished the whole northwest area with my Grandpa, Percival (Percy) Benjamin Emerson. He loved to fly fish. His favorite Trout fly was the Royal Coachman. He built a cabin on Babine Lake where I spent most of my summer school holidays fishing and enjoying the outdoors. Thanks to him, I am hooked on “Sportfishing” and I’ve come to love every aspect of it. My lifetime goals are to save the wild Salmon, Steelhead and Trout of the entire northwest area of British Columbia and establish a “Quality” sport fishing guiding industry. These are lofty goals but I will strive every day to achieve them. They are “my life long calling”. I have been married for 39 years and have three daughters and seven grandchildren. I am the owner of Noel Gyger - Weekly Fishing Report and Guided Fishing Adventures of 4012 Best Street, Terrace, BC Canada V8G 5R8 Tel/Fax (250) 635-2568 Cell (250) 631-2678 E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org Website www.noelgyger.ca I started fishing the Terrace area in the 1970’s. On May 24, 1983 I assisted my friend to land an 83-pound Chinook on the Kalum River. It was the river record. That experience changed my life and I started into the fish guiding industry and began exploring and fishing rivers by jet boat. I pioneered drift boats on the Kalum and Kitimat Rivers and taught many folks how to row them. I’ve owned a fishing lodge and guide business (Northwest Fishing Guides & Lodge) along with my wife from 1986 to 2001 when we sold it and retired but my love for the industry is just too great and after five years - I am back.
