Any BC-Skeena- reports?

Sounds like droughts, and commercial fishing have stalled the steelies so far...Any recent first hand reports? I leave tomorrow AM, just curious....-Randy

Gas prices are coming down

A friend of mine has rented a cabin on the Skeena, just upstream from the Kispiox Village. He has already hooked three fish, and he has only been there for three weeks. And that is no BS

ouch

that sounds horid. but you dont know randys fishability. he has a horshoe impaction . we fished skeena and copper last year this time. i landed four, my buddy pat two and randy 6 for the week we were there. i hope the run isnt so slow to average one a week. something more to say for the erie/ ontario tribs. but still nothing like truly wild chrome!

id give a vicarious report for flesh fly but cell range not so good out there with usa coverage, we will see when he gets back on the 17th

3 fish 3 weeks, ouch

I didn't make it up to the Kispiox, but I managed some good fishing condintions on the Skeena. Worked hard for the fish. Managed a bunch on streamers, and got 5 on the DRY! More impressive was this was my first trip that I exclusively fished the Spey. If it weren't for Juro's instruction I would have been a mess.

Attached are some of my favorite pics, I think they should come out. This was certainly one of my more challenging fishing trips, but my persitence, with a little luck from mother nature paid off. Looking back of course all the fish were each a very special experience, but I had the opportunity to watch this brown bear accross the river for close to half an hour......

Magnificent fish!

Brown bears are best viewed from the other side of the river.

Cheers,

Eric

Sadly my annual trip to the Bulkley was cancelled. Anybody have any reports on the fishing up there? FleshFly, those pix are terrific and make me want to break out my two-handers and just lawn cast.

Rich- Good to know for the future, I usualy don't bring them out of the water, but I was fishing alone and wanted to get full shot of this one...I will usually when fishing alone keep the fish rested in some slow water, between myself anf the river, and just take close ups of the fish, as in the other picture.... I do realize that these fish are quite endagered to say the least, perhaps you are anyone may suggest any good steelhead tips for good recovery?
