fishing tips and tricks
 Mar 5, 2009; 05:22PM - Meat Stock Cube Chemical Lure
 Category:  Fishing tips and tricks
 Author Name:  Mike Cobb

Click here to enlarge Tip&Trick Description 1: MEAT STOCK CUBE CHEMICAL LURE
This started off by being an applied science project in school linked to fishing for predatory species. I am happy for anyone to try it out. It takes some preparation but is worth the experiment. You can use it for river, lake or sea fishing from a bank, beach, pier or boat. Use the strongest line you have for dragging. Have a camera to get evidence of your catch.

First get your meat stock cubes – the red varieties are the best imitation of the fluids that leak from wounded prey. They are much cheaper if bought in the large boxes and cost even less if you can get them put on someone else’s shopping list.

You also need a pair of tights or stockings so ask nicely – particularly if someone is wearing them at the time!

Cut the tights/stockings up into 10cm (4in) squares and put them onto a flat surface.

Take the foil wrapping off of each stock cube being careful not to crumble it and place one centrally onto each square of the tights/stockings.

Tie the four corners of the material together into a firm knot – a test of your dexterity – you may need to use bigger squares at first and trim them up afterwards.

Then tie a length of line inside the knot of each lure bag leaving plenty of spare to attach to the eye on your lure. Store your bags in a waterproof and crushproof container.

When you are ready to fish attach a bag to the eye of your lure making sure that you tie the knot so that a used bag can be easily removed from the eye but cannot slip off during movement underwater. A pair of fine scissors will useful to do the cutting during bag changing. Dispose of used bags and line responsibly please – not into the water or onto the site.

Keep safe – wear a lifejacket if you are fishing on or by deep water. Keep yourself warm and waterproof. Do not fish on your own – it is safer with others. Let someone know where you are going and have a means of contacting him or her.

Noel Gyger - WEEKLY FISHING REPORT dated September 16 – September 23, 2007
(Number 37)

Dear Fishing Friends:

I have recovered from my hard drive crash on Sept 11. Thank goodness I had my files backed up on disc. Lesson for all: Get in the habit of backing up your stuff on a regular basis!

Fishing is good on a variety of rivers. Steelhead and Coho are the only target fish now, unless you are interested in the Trout and Dolly Varden fishery (which by-the-way is good year round, river or lake) or fishing the central or northern wilderness coastal rivers. The Skeena River is in “fishable” condition. We’ve had some rain which in one way is a good thing as the waters were getting too low and the fish were not moving. Now they are. You decide what you want to target, Steelhead or Coho or would you like to try and catch both on the same day? Are you into fly fishing, spin fishing or both? It’s your call. The guides know all the techniques and are here to help you. Read more regarding each river below.

The photo above is the crew of Fish Bone Productions from Rome, Italy who were here in the northwest for eight days to shoot sport-fishing shows to air in Italy and Europe. In the photo (left to right) are Kuso, Carlo, Francesco and outdoor photographer and writer Antonio. They are also shooting shows in the lower mainland, Vancouver Island and the Queen Charlottes. Their plan is to produce a series of documentaries composed of 11 episodes of 26 minutes each. The series will focus on the cultural and naturalistic aspects, giving particular importance to outdoor activities as a whole. The “Caccia e Pesca” TV channel will broadcast the TV series according to the following schedule: A new episode per week will be transmitted 10 times in the space of one week. After a period of 12 months, the entire series will be newly broadcasted and successively used as library material.

For a detailed report on the Kitimat River and Douglas Channel please read the Ron Wakita report and photos below. In addition, other guides have reports. See below.

CURRENT REPORT and summary for Skeena and Tributaries:

Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) Salmon forecast for 2007: Chinook look very good for the Skeena and Kitimat systems; Coho are good to excellent; Pink expect a reasonably good run; Sockeye returns to the Skeena are expected to be good this year; Chum average return.

TYPE OF FISH CAUGHT: Coho, Chum, Sockeye, Pink, Chinook and Steelhead in the river. Halibut, bottom fishing and Coho in the Kitimat Douglas Channel and Prince Rupert.

Thank you for using barbless hooks.


LARGEST FISH OF THE WEEK: Specie: 15- pound Coho Where: Skeena trib Angler: Erkki Kainulainen

WEATHER: Cloudy with 30 percent chance of showers except periods of rain near Stewart BC late this afternoon. Becoming windy early this morning. Highs to 12 degrees C. Region normal: Max. Temp. 15 degrees C. Min. Temp. 7 degrees C. Sunrise 7:21 am Sunset 7:33 pm

WEATHER REPORTS VIA TELEPHONE: Environment Canada taped messages constantly updated, giving current conditions and three-day forecasts. Terrace 250-635-4192 Kitimat 250-632-7864 Prince Rupert 250-627-1155 Smithers 250-847-1958.

For current Terrace weather information please cast on:

WATER CONDITIONS: The Skeena, Kitimat and Kalum Rivers are in fishable shape. Other Skeena tribs towards Prince Rupert are in fishable shape also.




SKEENA RIVER: The River came up but is still in fishable shape. Coho are showing up in fair numbers. Fly fishing and spin fishing for Steelhead is good. The main stem is the “highway” for Salmon and Steelhead heading to their many different tributary rivers.

KALUM RIVER: is good for both Steelhead and Coho now. It is possible to catch both Steelhead and Coho on the same day although each species requires specific location and technique.

This is a Classified River year round and can be guided from March 15 through October 15 only. The Steelhead record is 32-pounds. To see a photo of this fish cast to: The angler is Dennis Therrien.

KASIKS RIVER: Coho are coming in fair numbers. Let us hope the run continues to build. I have good reports from guides both fly and spin fishing. Water is a good height now after the rain we had.

EXCHAMSIKS RIVER: Coho are in the river now. Fishing the lower end may still be the best plan but some fish have moved upriver after the bump in water height.

EXSTEW RIVER: Coho are in the river now. This is a difficult river to fish because the water is a dark green colour.

STARTING NOW Think about hiring an experienced jet boat fishing guide for the above three rivers for fall Coho (Silver) Salmon. It will change your life…believe me!

GITNADOIX RIVER: The Coho are throughout the whole river. Access to this river is very difficult. Experienced jet boat operators only please.

ZYMOETZ (COPPER) RIVER: Good numbers of Steelhead are being caught. I have reports of some nice fish landed using both spin and fly. This is the time of year to try and get them to take a dry fly.

KINCOLITH RIVER: Coho should be coming in on high tides.

ISHKHEENICKH RIVER: This is a fantastic river for Coho this time of year. The water needs to be rising and falling to keep the fish moving up river.

MEZIADIN RIVER: Both Steelhead and Coho can be hooked on the same day plus numerous local trout and Dolly Varden char. To clarify: Fishing for Steelhead and Salmon are only allowed at the very low end of the river below the boundary sign (you are actually fishing the clean seam of the Meziadin River in the Nass River). Trout fishing is available throughout the whole river and lake. Please check the fishing regulations.

The fall colours in the Nass and trib region are absolutely beautiful this time of year. Cast to view some of the scenic photos.

In addition to scenic photos cast to to watch a few video clips from the beautiful Nass River system.

CRANBERRY RIVER: Both Steelhead and Coho can be hooked on the same day. Access to this river is not very good.

TSEAX RIVER: Has a late run of Chinook. The fish should be throughout the whole river. I have a report of good numbers of Chinook landed in the lower end down near the mouth. Coho should be right behind the Chinook or even mixed in with them.

KWINIMASS RIVER: Coho are coming in now. More rain the better.

ECSTALL RIVER: Coho should be coming in now with the higher tides.

Fishing Report from: Randy’s River Guiding

September 18, 2007: Pro guide Randy Marshall reports an exceptional day on the lower Skeena River for his two clients Nick and Peter from England. They landed 9 Coho and 2 Steelhead between them and lost a bunch more. The rods were “jumping” all day. Needless to say his clients were very impressed. They absolutely loved fishing on the Skeena River.


A summary of what is available year round can be read in the Archived Fishing Report dated April 13, 1997. For a direct link cast here:

Fishing Report for the Week of September 16 to 22, 2007

Al Sasuga Spey casting into the “River of Mists”. Photo credit: Cam Thiessen/Al Sasuga

The Skeena River and its tributaries have been coming into shape quite nicely after heavy rains early last week, and the middle of this week. The Skeena itself had dropped substantially early this week, but has since leveled off and there have been consistent flows. Certain areas of the Skeena have been producing well for Steelhead and Coho, although catch rates are much lower than they were when Pinks and Sockeye were migrating up the river. If you are on the Skeena though when a pod of fish moves through, there is no place like it!

And for the past week, we have hosted Jeff Bright and 9 anglers from Finland. Very experienced fly fishermen, each one hooked into some great Steelhead on the Skeena and its tributaries, along with cart-wheeling Coho on the fly. In many cases, the Coho were found holding in shallow sand flats in 2-4 feet of water, and the Finns did a great job of sight casting to them and employing rapid strips to exploit the Coho’s aggressive nature. Once hooked, the Coho often put up acrobatic, high flying runs. Erkki Kainulainen landed the largest Coho – a 15 lb chromer. Not to mention that 5 Steelhead were taken on the dry fly as well. It certainly was a great time had by all, and thanks also go out to Ismo Uosukainen for his finely prepared carpaccia and sushi!

The fall season is now upon us, and we are in the prime time for Fall Steelhead and Coho. With each day and certainly each freshet, more of these spectacular fish will be ascending the Skeena…

Until next week, tight lines and screaming reels…

CURRENT REPORT and summary for Northern Coastal Rivers:

Fishing Report from: Reliable Guide and Charters


Marc Girard of Reliable Guide and Charters drifted with his clients Luc, Steve and Deni on September 17th and landed 2 Coho and lost a couple more.

There were six Coho landed at the hatchery Friday morning September 21st. Five of these were all hooked bottom bouncing roe with a spin n glo. The sixth was hooked on a jig. The Kitimat River is very low and clear and most of the Coho are being caught during the morning and evening bite. The Coho seem to be grouping at the Hatchery and the Goose Creek run in the lower river. Friday night there were another five Coho caught below the hatchery. Drifting the middle section river right now is a bit spotty with the new fish holding in the lower end. The river needs a bump of water to move fish but in the Northwest one has to be careful what one wishes for. There is some rain forecast for this weekend, so here's hoping for a little rain for the river anglers but not too much.

On Friday night September 21st the Kitimat rose 4' and a bunch of Coho were on the move. Alex Nemeth drifted with his clients Robin Frosse, Dave Eby and Rod Fitzpatrick on Saturday September 22nd. They hooked fifteen Coho but only managed to land four.

I had the pleasure of guiding John Harder and Tony Tiani on Saturday. We hooked eight Coho and were able to land four. Coho fishing on the Kitimat is not as good as it normally is this time of the year but there are a fair number of Coho in the system and with a little effort Coho are being caught.


With the Kitimat River staying relatively low for this time of year there are some Coho still schooling up in the harbour.

My neighbor, Ted Hrynkiw boated 4 Coho and lost 4 Wednesday September 19th.

Wes Owens from Golden Adventure Charters also boated four Coho on September 21st with his clients. There are Coho being caught in the Harbour fishery but not in the numbers that we have become accustomed to. The main run is either late or not going to happen. Only Mother Nature knows what will happen with this year's Coho run but stay tuned to this Fishing report and either way we will report the results.

Thank You to everyone who contributed to this report.

CURRENT REPORT and summary for Central Coast/North Van Island Wilderness Rivers:

DFO Salmon forecast for 2007: Coho return is expected to be normal; Chinook were at or above average, so good fishing is anticipated; Chum are always strong; Pink returns are expected to be normal, which means very plentiful; Sockeye is not expected to be high.

Fishing Report from: Nimmo Bay Resort

Fishing is very much ongoing at Nimmo Bay. October 15 is our last official day. Kevin O'Neill our pilot / guide provided accesses to this Chinook, while our young guest reaped the reward. See photo-of the-week above.

For the most part the fall has been beautiful, with sunny days and great fishing. There are rivers we access where the Coho haven't started to come into. Each day provides a new pageant and the angling odyssey at Nimmo Bay continues to amaze fishers from around the world. Ireland, England and South Africa will be taking back their stories of great catches and magnificent scenery, while stopping to enjoy a shore lunch at 7000 feet.

The food from our coastal kitchen continues to amaze anglers with a big appetite, after a day on the rivers. This gourmet collection of coastal delicacies goes beyond 'numbers of stars' and is best described as Bombastic or Almost Biblical. But I guess you just have to be here to truly understand how the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Note from Noel: This year in 2007, out of 10 Heli fishing and tour resorts and lodges from around the world, Nimmo Bay Resort was voted number one by the prestigious, New York based Forbes Traveler magazine.
