KITIMAT RIVER: 

The Trout fishing on the Kitimat River continues to be very good for the anglers who are venturing out.  We received rain, snow, and then some mixed rain and snow this week but the river conditions remained excellent.

  

The most popular method continues to be float fishing with Gibbs Floats and Berkley Power Worms with Bubba's Bait Barn's Dew Worms.  We also received another report of a Hatchery Steelhead caught and released in the lower Kitimat River.

There is a Creel Survey being conducted on the Kitimat River to assess Trout populations.  The survey is being supervised by Brian Kean with participation of our Tackle Store.  Any anglers wishing to participate please contact me at wakita@telus.net or drop into the store.

I spoke to Lori at MK Bay Marina today and she reported that there was very little activity this week in the Kitimat Harbour.

There were a few boats planning to get out this weekend.  Stay Tuned!

Halibut Issue:  I can not believe that the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) is determined to enforce their Halibut Policy allocating 88% of Halibut Stocks to 435 Commercial Halibut License Holders and 12% to the rest of the Canadian population.  How can such a grossly unfair distribution of a Canadian Common resource exist?   Furthermore, because of this policy, Halibut may be closed as early as July 2011 for Recreational anglers while the Commercial sector fishes on.  This is not a conservation issue, it is a misallocation of Halibut Stocks.

The Sports Fishing Institute, B.C Wildlife Federation (BCWLF) and the Sports Fishing Advisory Board (SFAB) have been negotiating with D.F.O with no success.  The only way that this absurd policy is going to change is for the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans to receive a letter or email from each and every Recreational angler and indeed from each and every Canadian who thinks this policy is wrong.

The importance of  letters or emails to the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, Minister Gail Shea <Shea.G@parl.gc.ca> can NOT be emphasized enough.   

The Sports Fishing Institute (SFI) has just formed a coalition with the B.C Wildlife Federation (BCWLF) to deal with the Halibut Issue.  This coalition is asking all other groups to join. They are also coordinating the efforts of individuals by requesting that copies of letters and emails be sent to info@sportfishing.bc.ca 

Please also send a copy of your letter or email to your Member of Parliament.  Our MP for Skeena is Nathan Cullen Cullen.N@parl.gc.ca <Cullen.N@parl.gc.ca>

The voice of everyone who thinks that the 12% of Halibut Stocks allocated to all Canadians is wrong, needs to be heard in Ottawa.  We can bring change if everyone does their part.  Please send an email or letter to the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans.    Minister Gail Shea <Shea.G@parl.gc.ca>  Please include your Home address in your letter to demonstrate to the Minister that the Halibut resource is enoyed by Canadians across Canada.

Special Report:

 

Dec 9 Lakelse Lake Trent Vines and Ariel Kuppers caught some Rainbow Trout ice fishing out at Lakelse Lake.  They were using Mepps and Blue Fox Spinners with some cured Shrimp.  Ariel drilled holes in the ice with a Normark 8" Swede Bore Ice Auger.  They also caught some White Fish.  Congratulation Guys!

  

Dec 10 Ariel Kuppers and Justin Lowes returned to Lakelse Lake and caught some very nice Rainbow Trout ice fishing with Mepps and Blue Fox Spinners.  They baited their spinners with Shrimp.  They were fishing with Berkley Hot Ice Fishing Combos.  Congratulations Guys!  Areil cautioned that with the slightly warmer temperature and rain, the ice was starting to melt and they were going to wait for colder weather before returning.

Special Photos:

Sara and Richard Moretti shared these photos for this Fishing Report:

 

 

Sara writes: "The one of Richard and Braydon is in Flin Flon Manitoba this past July. The fish are a northern Pike.  The one that Braydon caught was the biggest that we landed and released."  Congratulations Braydon! I had to include one of myself too:) Congratulations Sara!

The other pictures are of the Dumas boys, Josh and Zach, Rick and Larry taken last June. Congratulations everyone and Thank You for sharing the photos!
