Well, I'm home now. Amsterdam.
After 2 weeks BC, last week of September and first week of October.
This was the worst trip ever since 1990 concerning pulls and catches of steelhead.
Fished the Skeena at Ferry Island on September 22. Nothing
Try to fish the Kispiox from Sept. 24-28, but the level was so low that the natives closed the lower part. Spend Sept 24 on the Skeena there without any sign of fish. Only a local who try to charge us for C$100 each as that part of the Skeena is still native reservation. Some locals with hardware had little luck at the confluence of the Kispiox and Skeena.
Fished the Bulkley on Sept. 25 and both of us had 2 pulls and we both managed to beach 1 steelhead. Small fish tough.
On Sept. 26 a day without any signs of fish at the Bulkley, although we saw 2 guys (of the 20 we spotted) play some steel.
Moved to Houston and fished the Morice for 7 days (not in the weekend as we are non resident aliens) and hooked and beached 3 steelhead in total when using our pontoons.
Most people we met had the same experiences, some a ltlle better and even some a little worse.
We met an anlger from Vancouver and he claimed to have 26 steelhead on the dry fly...........
Sold my pontoons and after 25 trips to the Skeena and her tribs, I closed this adventure.
My best memories are not too old!!
