 The Kitimat River was low and clean all week.  Trout anglers caught lots of Trout on the the Kitimat River and her tributaries.  Float fishing with some variation of live worms has been the most effective for Trout.  Some Fly fishers have also had success fishing for Trout.  Minnow patterns or Egg patterns have been the most popular.  One Fly Fisher reported hooking 2 Coho on a 5 wt. rod.  He also reported that he got his "Butt" kicked trying to land them.

Lots of Coho were caught on the Kitimat this week but they were all various stages of spawning colors.  This is normal for this time of year, 
Oct 26 2 Coho were reported caught at the Pump House.  The angler I spoke to said, "One was bright silver while the other had started to turn".
Oct 27 Kyree Dos Santos and Athan Ivanaki landed 15 Trout using Bubba's Bait Dew Worms and Gibbs pink wool Gibbs Floats.  They were fishing one of the tributaries of the Kitimat River.
Oct 28 Kyree and Athan landed 3 Coho on the Kitimat River.  Well done Kyree and Athan.
Oct 29 Kyree Dos Santos and Athan Ivanakis hooked 3 Coho and bunch trout.  Well done Guys.  I apologize no photos but I had not received them at the deadline for posting this Fishing Report. 
Anglers are reminded that Coho closes on the Kitimat River Oct 31.  The regulations states: Kitimat River "Nov. 01 - Dec 31 No fishing for Coho"
With Coho closing on the Kitimat River early next week, anglers will focus their efforts on the Kitimat River to Cutthroat Trout.  Fly fishing for these trout is very popular on the Kitimat River but be careful.  When Trout fishing on the Kitimat River there is always the possibility on hooking Coho or even the odd Steelhead.
We have some great Trout fishing on the Kitimat River due to the efforts of the Kitimat Hatchery.  We are indeed fortunate to have the Kitimat Hatchery on the Kitimat River.
Richard from MK Bay Marina reports Humpback Whales in the Kitimat Harbour this week.  "They were having breakfast right in front of the Marina" said Richard.  Richard and I both agreed that the Humpback were in the Kitimat Harbor feeding on the Winter Chinook or some bait fish.  Either way the Humpbacks are a good sign that there Winter Chinook in the Kitimat Harbor.  Richard was going to try to take some pictures for this Fishing Report but I had not yet received any at the deadline for this report.  Anyone interested in viewing these Humpback whales are always welcome to view them from the MK Bay Marina Restaurant.
Oct 12,13,14 Ferd Wuensche hooked 24 Winter Chinook fishing with Ray Hepting in the last 3 days.   Ferd said "we had a bunch break off.   We limited out 3 anglers almost every day we went out".  Sounds like an awesome 3 days of Winter Chinook fishing!  Well done guys.  Ferd and his group were fishing with the Gibbs Highliner Flashers with Rhys Davis Anchovy Teaser and Rhys Davis Anchovies.
Oct 31 Wes Owens was chartered by Brenda Miller and Stephen King.  Brenda and Stephen hooked 6 Winter Chinook and landed 3 beautiful, bright, silver Winter Chinook.  I had the pleasure of joining Brenda and Stephen on their Charter with Wes and discovered that Brenda and Stephan were very nice folks who had just purchased a house in Kitimat. Congratulations on your catch and Welcome to Kitimat!  Wes and I had a wonderful time fishing with you folks.
My official scoring on your competition was that Brenda caught the first and the most. Stephen caught the biggest and a Great time was had by all!
Oct 31 Victor Lick was also out fishing on Sunday and he reports hooking 3 Winter Chinook and landed 1 beauty.  Vick also reports reports catching a bunch of Crab.  Congratulations Victor!
It's appears that the Kitimat Harbor Winter Chinook Fishery is starting.  We have Charter boats available for any angler wishing to get out on the Douglas Channel.  Please contact Ron
