Hi all,

I'm heading out to the Skeena area for the next three weeks. I have heard that the Kalum and Copper are fishing well for fresh fish. Just curious if anyone has any more info?

Thanks
Len

That would be the lady at Fishtales in Terrace!

I'll bring a rod just incase, but I won't plan to fish.

Thanks for the honest answer guys.

What's with this fishing report business, don't we have enough competition as it is?
With all due respects, your feigned surprise at hearing this type of geographically specific chatter on an international website is the biggest surprise of all.

Calls to mind the stone cold stupefaction I once felt when a chest-beating long-winded pretentious lodge owner who used to own a lodge in Telkwa back in the good days complained to me in the early 90's how freaking busy the Skeena system was getting, and didn't I wholeheartedly agree with him that something had to be done immediately about the insane crowding...?

This was the same guy who all through the 70's and 80's traveled up and down the coast setting up court at every Sportsman Show that would have him, where from his velvet cushion he would regal the plebeians with wondrous tales of 10 to 15 fish mornings his guests could have casting from the porch of his one-of-a-kind lodge in Telkwa (and once the guides got the jet boats warmed up and they were on their way, the real fishing would then begin...)

Calls to mind the Chinese proverb: beware that you get what you wish for...

Yeah, ever since Dave Elkins left Fish Tales the people there are really just clerks...no inherent fly fishing knowledge at all. If you told them that fresh steelhead made of green cheese were running up the Copper and the Kalum they'd dutifully pass it on. I used to buy huge amounts of gear there. Now I don't go in anymore. Too bad.

our immigration laws are too lax
