The Kitimat River is producing lots of Trout this week. Some of the catch numbers are incredible.  There have been some huge Dolly Varden being caught also.  Steelheading is also improving steadily as more Steelhead have been reported this week.

 Dolly Varden Char
March 27 Donny Weber weighed in a 6.6lb Dolly Varden at our store.  Donny fishing with his friends Gavin and James caught many other Dolly Varden all over 3lbs.  They also reported  releasing 2 Steelhead in the upper Kitimat. Wow!  Congratulations on a great day of Fishing Guys!
The Steelhead numbers are starting to improve with each tide as expected but the huge numbers of Trout that are being caught and the size of the Dolly Varden have been a welcome surprise.


Crabbing is still the focus of many Saltwater boaters, especially King Crab.  Other boaters are also doing some prawning
Mar 17 Dean was crabbing with his Uncles and they caught 17 King Crab and kept 8 King Crab on Saturday March 20.  Dean also said that they only caught a few Dungeness Crab.
Mar 22 Dean and his Uncles went out again crabbing and they caught 6 King Crab on Monday 22.  They caught less King Crab on their outing but they caught a whole bunch more Dungeness Crab.  Wow! Nice catch!
Mar 26 Dean Melo and his friend, Ernie and his Uncles caught a total of 23 Dungeness, 31 King Crab and 1 Box Crab.  They only kept their daily quotas but they had an outstanding day of crabbing. Wow!  Dean lives 2 doors down the street from my home.  I think I am going to see if there are any Crab left in the pot!
The Douglas Channel will continue to provide fresh Seafood for all those who wish to harvest from her bountiful abundance.  We are truly blessed to live in an area where we can enjoy the scenic wonders of the Douglas Channel and dine on the fresh harvest of our efforts.
