COHO PHOTO OF THE SEASON: JULIE WAKITA holding the COHO that won the Kitimat Chamber of Commerce Derby.

After a great Coho season and the Kitimat River closed Oct 31st for retention of Coho.  This is my favorite photo from this year's Coho season.

Fishing Report from:  Ron Wakita of Reliable Guide and Charters


KITIMAT RIVER:  The Kitimat River dropped early in the week but not a lot of fishing activity except for Morris Evans.  The remainder of the week we received some typical fall weather with rain showers mixed with the odd sunny period.  The river accordingly was up and down but for the most part fishing conditions were marginal.


Nov 3 Morris Evans fishing the Pump House pool for Cutthroat or maybe the odd Steelhead.  Morris has been a fixture on the Kitimat River for as long as I can remember.  If anyone is out fishing the Kitimat it will be good old Morris.  Tuesday was a classic example of Morris in his usual spot at the Kitimat Pump House.

You know you have had an excellent Coho season when.....we receive reports that Moore Creek are full of Coho as Brad Riley witnessed during last week’s high water.  The creek was full of spawning Coho....  Chad, one of my hockey buddies who work’s with the Railway reports all kinds of Coho swimming and spawning in all the ditches along the railway tracks.  Kind of cool observations and definitely signs that confirms that we had an excellent Coho return on the Kitimat this year.   Anglers are reminded that Coho is closed for retention as of Oct 31st.

When the weather permits there will be some good Trout fishing on the Kitimat River. There are some very avid Trout fishers in the area who are always on the watch for the opportunity of good river conditions.  When the conditions improve using worms and flies will be the more productive methods for the Kitimat River Trout. 



Nov 3 Ferd Weunche was out trolling and was able land two beautiful Winter Chinook.  They hooked five but only landed two.  "They were not big" said Ferd but "perfect for the barbecue".  Well done Ferd.  Sorry no photos, Ferd promised to send me pictures but he forgot to take them.  So all I have to show for this portion of this Fishing Report is a picture of the bait that Ferd was using.  If I can’t show what he caught I can at least show what he was using.

Summary: The weather conditions have improved in the Douglas Channel this week especially the wind.  More boaters will be out trolling for Winter Chinook.

I am looking forward to trying the new Ultra Violet (UV) Flashers that the Flasher manufacturers are offering.


I have chosen Hot Spot, Oki and Gibbs flashers to test in the Kitimat Harbour Winter Chinook Fishery. Stay Tuned!

We are booking for next year.  Any interested anglers please contact us at 

Hope you enjoy the Report.

Thank You to everyone who provided information and pictures to this report.
