 Description:  Imagine the opportunity to catch six different species of gamefish while being pampered at a remote island lodge in Northern Ontario, Canada. Red Pine Wilderness Lodge is that place. As hosts for the last 21 years my wife Janice and I have accommodated many satisfied guests from North America and some as far away as Singapore. Although Walleye is the most popular target, Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass Whitefish, Perch and Brook Trout are all available on the 28 miles of Lady Evelyn Lake or the portage lakes that we feature.

 Jan 5, 2004; 10:17PM - Spanish Mackerel Tricks
 Category:  Fishing tips and tricks
 Author Name:  Tony

Tip&Trick Description 1: I love fishing for Spanish mackerel, so I do it often. When I shove off to go fishing, I often stumble upon a very large school of mackerel, but sometimes they all don't want to feed and reject anything you throw at them. When this happenes, a good trick to get them to bite is to get them exited so they just want to catch what the think is a little fish just for the fun of it. To do this you would want to swich immediately to anywhere from a 1/4oz to a 1/2oz kastmaser-(like a spoon but a lot better). I make a long cast to where the fish are and as soon as that lure hits the water I begin to reel in just fast enough to get the kastmaser poping out of the water kinda like a fleeing baitfish. After it jumps out of the water a couple times keep it fast just below the surface. Do this at least 4 times during your retrieve and pretty soon you will have dozens of mackerel chasing your lure just for the sport of it until the lure bites back and then you get to have all the fun.
Tip&Trick Description 2: When you get those swarms of mackerel chasing the your line, sometimes your lure will come to the boat a little early and the fish will ignore the katmaster and just swim away. To prevent this you want to go to the opposite end of the boat, make your cast, and then maneuver the lure so it will swim parallel to the boat, instead of directly at it, taking the mackerel with it. You will be catching mackerel right at the side of the boat.
Tip&Trick Description 3: These techniques have worked for me many times and gotten me coolers full of fish and I hope they work for you, too. Good fishing till next time.

Noel Gyger - WEEKLY FISHING REPORT dated April 5 – April 12, 2009

Dear Fishing Friends:

SUMMARY: The weather has been good all week with daytime temperatures near normal. The snow pack is starting to melt and the rivers are on the rise. The Steelhead that were holding in deep dark pools are on the move again. Both upper and lower sections of Kalum River are in good shape even though the water is rising. The Zymoetz (Copper) River is very dirty (copper colour) right now and is coloring up the Skeena River also. The main stem Skeena River, below Terrace and above the Zymoetz River is clean enough to fish for Steelhead. A good run of spring Steelhead should be coming in now. Good runs of Steelhead are coming into the many isolated coastal streams and rivers. For the Kitimat River and Douglas Channel please check out the Ron Wakita report below. There are lots of New! items posted on the website this week, please see below.

We don’t sport fish for Herring but I am happy to report commercial Herring fishery out of Prince Rupert was up this year and slightly higher than average. The roe was of good quality and fish were bigger than in recent years. Lots of Herring usually means lots of Salmon.

NOTICE There is a logjam below the highway riprap just above Nalabila Creek. Can barely make it through with a pontoon boat, attempting it with a drift boat would be dangerous. See two photos below:

Friends of Wild Salmon urge you to send a letter now calling for a public inquiry on the proposed Enbridge project to build a supertanker port at Kitimat and two 1,150 km pipelines to Alberta. Cast here to send letter:

NOW BOOKING: Let me know if I can be of service to book you with the 'best' fishing guide and/or fishing lodges for both river and ocean. There are NO extra charges to book through me, just a lot of free information and advice from a person with years and years of fishing and fish guiding experience. It is like hiring two guides for the price of one. I will promptly answer your questions and concerns. Cast here to read more of what I have to offer.

Many people book three trips per year to our area; one trip in the spring (March-April-May), one trip in the summer (June-July-August) and one trip in the fall (September-October-November). They love having the same guide but fishing for different fish in different areas.

Be sure to check out my website at for news bulletins, mid week fishing updates, conservation, my history, quality waters strategy, special guided fishing trips, video clips, podcasts, scenic river photos, wildlife photos and others, comments from past guests, informational articles, archived fishing reports from 1996 through 2002 and a sportfishing market place. I hope it meets with your entire satisfaction. I am at your service.

SKEENA RIVER: Is rising and starting to colour up as the spring run-off has started. The Zymoetz (Copper) River is coming in dirty. The Skeena River is still fishable above the Zymoetz and below Terrace. Should be a few Steelhead and Trout one can catch.

Fishing Report from: Ron Wakita of Reliable Guide and Charters.

KITIMAT RIVER: Easter week has been productive for Steelheaders on the Kitimat River. We received some high tides this week combined with a bump up in the river water level enticed some chrome Steelhead into the Kitimat River. I spoke to a French speaking angler Tommy on Wednesday, who had hooked four steelhead and landed two. Tommy was fishing the lower Kitimat. I spoke to another angler in our tackle store who wished to remain unnamed, who landed a Steelhead on Tuesday and another on Wednesday upriver. On Thursday I spoke to Kevin whose friend from Vernon landed a Steelhead fishing the Cable Car run. Kevin also said that they watched another angler land a big bright female on the other side of the river. This angler was drifting in a pontoon boat and put this wild Steelhead into a black tube and continued on. I explained that the angler was probably one of the Kitimat Hatchery brood collection crew collecting brood stock. The Kitimat Hatchery is looking for volunteers who are interested in assisting with Steelhead brood collection. Any interested anglers please contact me via email and I will explain the program and give you the Hatchery contact info. There is a strict protocol to be followed but it is a worthwhile project.

Mike Herzberg of Reliable Guide and Charters fished with his fishing partner on Thursday and Friday. Mike landed a 15lb. buck on Thursday and his fishing partner hooked four Steelhead and landed three on Friday. Mike also warns of a log jam located just below Saw Mill. Anglers drifting the Kitimat River please beware. Mike advises that pontoons with due caution are able to navigate through. High water may also increase the hazard. Thank You for the pictures and the advisory Mike.
Overall the Steelheading was very good this week with fresh, bright Steelhead in the system. There should be more Steelheaders fishing the Kitimat River this Easter long weekend. Stay Tuned to this report for further updates.

This is the logjam below the highway riprap just above Nalabila Creek. Can barely make it through with a pontoon boat, attempting it with a drift boat would be dangerous. Someone needs to get in there with a power saw to open it up. Photos by Mike Herzberg.

Anyone interested in a Guided Trip on the Kitimat River for Steelhead with Reliable Guide and Charters please contact Noel and he would be more than happy to accommodate.

DOUGLAS CHANNEL: Albert Nelson a resident of Kitimaat Village reports large schools of herring spawning in the Kitimat harbour especially in front of the Village. With the herring schooled up along the beach and with some strong winds creating some larger waves, the herring are being washed up onto the beach during the High tides. 'My brother picked up three buckets of herring right off the soccer field' said Arnold. The Kitimaat Village soccer fields are located along the shore line and with the abnormally high tides this week and high waves has created this phenomenon. Albert was in our tackle store buying herring jigs to catch the herring and was looking for a bucket for when the winds picked up again. Wow! This is first time I have heard of this happening and I was born and raised in Kitimat.

With the herring in the Kitimat Harbour, smart money says that there should be some feeder chinook in the Kitimat Harbour feeding on the herring. Many boaters were heading out for the weekend. Upon their return I will update this report. Stay Tuned.

The early indicators of the Herring run are that it is very strong this year. Herring bait fishers have reported good catches as have the commercial herring boats. This may be good signs of things to come with this season's Salmon runs. Usually when the herring run is strong the salmon returns are also very strong. Here's to a 'Great Salmon Fishing Season'
