The Kitimat River is full of Salmon this week with Coho being the new kids on the block.
Fresh sealiced Coho are being caught throughout the Kitimat River system with the lower Kitimat (below Haisla Bridge) accounting for most of the Coho. .
More Coho were being caught in the later days of this week as we have a building high tide which peaks at 19′ on Sunday.and Monday.
Anglers should beware of the bears as there are many Black Bears and Grizzly Bears also interested in the large number of Salmon in the Kitimat River right now.
With the low river conditions, usually the early morning fishing is best and again on the rising afternoon tides.
Blue and Copper spoons have been the most productive and a Thunder Jig we call, “Scooby Doo” with copper heads have been the most productive Jigs.

Aug-19 Mathias Luis proudly holding 2 of 4 Coho he caught trolling at Jesse Falls he caught fishing with his Uncle Jeff Burkitt. They were using Ancovies with the Misty Blue Green flasher. Congratulations Everyone and Thank You for sharing your picture with our Fishing Report..
This is a great time to be fishing the Douglas Channel as the odds of catching your limit of Coho and Halibut in the same day is the best during this time of the season. Coho were slow to get going but it is heating up throught out the Douglas Channel. Both Devastation and Douglas Channel are producing excellent number but as always right place on the right tide. Many boaters reported high slack the better Coho tide and low slack was the better Halibut tide. When in doubt, Do what the fish are telling you to do!
Good Luck everyone! Be Safe and Have Fun!

We are all hoping to continue to raise the level of Public Awareness of Water Safety on the Kitimat River and Douglas Channel in the minds and behavior of the Sport Fishing Community in our area this year and future years.
The involvement of the kids is still the priority this year and I believe the key to bringing a vital change to the habits and behavior of Water Safety in our area..
Ron’s Mobile Fishing Tackle and Bait Shop Staff are still handing out the Nick Contracts.(below) Please pick one up at our store or print from this report.
We are requesting that anglers and loved sign the contract and then pin the contract onto the fridge door as a reminder to wear their wading belts and their Life Jackets. The Contact between Angler and Loved Ones clearly states the reasons why.
