Chinook Salmon and Steelhead Numbers are High in the Skeena

July 22, 2016

3 fly anglers hooked 6 chinooks today and managed to land one at the final buzzer! Watched fish roll all day and a bunch of jacks rising all the time at the top of the pool. We saw some roll over 40 pounds and had a few in the 20s on the line before they popped off. Steelhead are coming in early this year, with the numbers at the test net on the Skeena at four times they're normal number for this time of year. Hopefully we find some. 4 more days to go with Nicholas Dean in Terrace, BC!
