Aug 16 Madi Edey sent me her photo of a Coho she caught on the Kitimat River last week.  Congratulations for  your catch, Madi!
Thank You for sharing your photo with our Fishing Report.

Aug 21 Marc Girard and I had the pleasure of fishing with Jody and Shenelle Gardiner and their son, Iron Chef Jose Bambino (Kasen) and their friends Dwanne and Michelle Clough.  Between the 2 Driftboats, we kept one Coho each and 10 Pinks.  We hooked, landed and released probably 30 more Pinks not including the ones that released themselves.  It was a pleasure to fish this group of fun loving and witty anglers.  It was a special delight to fish with Kasen who was a very polite, well mannered young man with a warped sense of humour.  I think he is going to turn out great! Thank You all for using our services!
Anyone who would like to organise a group Driftboat Trip on the Kitimat River, please contact Ron or 250 632 1275
