KITIMAT RIVER: The Kitimat River experienced some huge fluctuations in the river levels this week.  Last weekend, the Kitimat rose almost 8 ½ feet in 24hrs.  Since then, the Kitimat spiked once and then steadily dropped back down to a fishable level and clarity.  By Thursday, the upper Kitimat River was fishable and we received many reports of Coho being caught on Thursday and Friday.

Sept 30 Lawrente Bachand was fishing the Kitimat River Pump House pool landed 2 Coho.  Congratualtions Lawrente!  The Kitimat River had dropped and is in excellent shape.

Sept 30 Athan Ivanakis and Kyree Dos Santos reports fishing the upper Kitimat and they landed 4 Coho in 25 minutes.  Anthan says that "They were jumping like crazy, we caught 4 Coho and lost a bunch more.  I am going back to catch more tonight!"  Well done Kyree and Athan!  Good Luck tonight!

This week’s conditions were abnormal but it is typical to expect major fluctuations in river levels on the Kitimat River this time of the year fishing for Coho.

The challenge is to find where the Coho went and are holding when the river drops and cleans.  Anglers who find the Coho, usually find lots of them.  Coho fishing can be outstanding this time of year because of the large numbers of Coho are stacked up in specific holes.

DOUGLAS CHANNEL: The abnormally high river levels earlier in the week caused dirty water and debris in the Kitimat Harbour and at the mouths of  most of the creeks down the Douglas Channel.   
Sept 25 Wes Owen landed a small feeder Chinook in the Kitimat Harbour.  Wes was trolling for some late Coho migrating through the Kitimat Harbour on route to the Kitimat River when he hooked this Chinook.  Well done Wes!
Sept 26 Ferd Bouzane skippering the ``Hanapai`` on a Bottomfishing trip with Dan Roth and Gerald Finley.   Dan, Ferd and Gerald boated 18 Snapper and Quill backs, 4 Ling Cod and 4 Halibut.  They were using Penn 330 GTI Reels, Penn Slammer Rods, 80lb Tuff Line and Gibbs Spreader Bars.  They were fishing in the Butedale area.  Congratulations Guys!

Summary:Bottom Fishing will continue to be good on the Douglas Channel providing the weather is acceptable.  Strong winds will become more frequent during the fall and boaters are advised to monitor the VHF weather channel. It is sound practice for boaters to check the weather reports more often during the fall and into the winter fishery.  Good Luck and Safe Boating!

Thank You to everyone for providing photos and info to this Fishing Report.
We still have plenty of open dates for Drift boat trips, Saltwater Charters and Jet boat trips.  Anyone interested in booking a trip with us please contact Ron Wakita
Good Health and Good Fishing!
Sincerely and Cheers
