KITIMAT RIVER: PHOTO OT THE WEEK: Kirsten Kuny proudly holding a Chinook that we estimated would weigh just over 30lbs. Woo Hoo! Great Job Princess Kirsten! Also affectionately known as “Iron Chef Kirsten”. I had the pleasure of also fishing with Kirsten’s brother, Ian Kuny and Kirsten’s new boyfriend, Andrew.
Kristen and Ian’s parents, Michelle and Brad Kuny are very, very good family friends. Accordingly, I consider Kirsten and Ian are part of my family.
In addition to the fishing, the story line of our Drift also included the “Uncle Ron’s Kirsten’s new boyfriend test”. I clearly detailed in the Pretrip session that Andrew could earn either “Prince Andrew” status or at the other end of the spectrum “SHx?T Head” status. Depending on his fishing ability and my observation of his behavior and treatment of Kristen, I would rate his performance. Please see Full Fishing Report below to see how our Story ends.
Ian Kuny kindly holding a 86cm Chinook for his sister! What a nice Big Brother! Congratulations Kirsten and Ian was very proud of his little sister. : )
“Prince Andrew” proudly holding a Chinook just over 20lbs that he landed on our morning drift. Landing this Chinook and some affectionate gestures and kindness towards Kirsten earned Andrew the “Prince Andrew” status.
The Uncle Ron fishing chapter in Princess Kirsten and Prince Andrew’s lives is written with a Happy Ending. The rest of their story is yet to be told.
Congratulations to everyone! It was a lot of fun fishing with you and Thank You for creating a fishing page in my family history book of life that I will always cherish…

July 22 Zack Sanchioni caught these nice Chinook fishing the upper Kitimat (washouts) using B n R soft-beads-14mm. Well Done Zack and Thank You for sharing your photos with our Fishing Report.
Luke text me a picture of this Hatchery Chinook for the purpose of possibly getting an opening to retain a Hatchery Chinook in the future. I forward this picture to Vince Sealy for his records in the Salmon Enhancement Program.
All anglers are asked to help by texting pictures of large Hatchery Chinook to Ron 250 632 1275 or email to email@example.com. Please include your name, size of the Chinook and contact info.
Please also return any heads of Hatchery Chinook under the legal retention size to the Kitimat River Hatchery or Ron’s Mobile Fishing Tackle and Bait Shop..
This is an excellent time to be fishing the Kitimat River. There lots of Pinks migrating through the lower Kitimat on every rising tide. It appears that the afternoon tideS out fished the morning tides this week.
Chinook are being caught throughout the entire Kitimat River right up to the 18 mile bridge. The Chinook are starting to change to spawning colours with fewer and fewer bright Chinook being observed. Black spin n glos with glow hoochie, Black Jigs or 2 toned Black is the ticket for Chinook late in the season.
Anglers are reminded that Chinook closes for retention on midnight of July 31st. Catch em while you can!
Halibut and Bottomfish has been fairly consistent throughout this season and typically at this time of year, this end of the channel gets better because as the Spawned out Pinks, Chum and Chinook start washing out the river and creek mouths, Halibut and other bottomfish migrate up this end of the channel.
Smart money says, “Why burn the fuel to travel out to fish for Halibut when eventually they migrate closer”.

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.The most significant priority last year was to involve the kids in our lives to help change the culture of water safety in our area. Our culture, attitude and behavior with Seat belts changed because involvement of our kids. We told our kids to put their seat belts on and every time we forgot, they reminded us to do the same. Our kids became and still are the “Seat Belt Police in our lives”.
Accordingly we are hoping the kids become the “Wading belt and Life Jacket Police in the lives of the Sport Fishing Community. Hence the Nick Contract.
