The forecast is for good weather and favorable winds during the upcoming May Long weekend.
May long weekend is usually the start to the Douglas Channel fishery for many boaters in our area.
Saltwater Anglers are reminded that the Max length for Halibut is 126cms. The new regulations are one page 2 of your Tidal Water License.
Good Luck to everyone and Please Safe Safe!
.KITIMAT RIVER; PHOTO OF THE WEEK
May 18 The Kitimat River is high and dirty. As shown on the Kitimat River Height website, the height is 2.4 metres.
The river height needs to drop to 1.6 or 1.7 before the Kitimat River is clean enough to fish.
The Chinook season is still very early so we are hoping that most of the snow will have melted before June when our main run of Chinook spawners typically run.
The forecast is calling for more good weather and favorable winds so if the Kitimat River be sure to still get out and take advantage of the good weather!
