Fishing Report For April 29th, 2017
Current Fishing Report for May 26th, 2017 #1
The next day my friend Mike was wanted to go out crabbing and bring his son Lucas out for his first ever trip. With Rupert blowing gale winds I decided just to stay close and we went to the Douglas Channel Which has always been known for its great crabbing!
We made it there very early as it was suppose to blow up in the early afternoon and with my little boat and a young kid I didn’t wanna get caught in that. So we dropped our traps and had some breakfast on the beach.
After a good breakfast and some exploring on the beach it was time to go pull the crab pots. First pull was very good as we got just about our limit for the day but we still needed a few more so back down the pots go!
Of course next pull we found our limit for the day and all of them were nice big crab! Lucas even pulled up a trap by himself! Pretty good for a little guy! All and all it was another good day but now back to the real world!
Soon enough the river will drop the springs will be stacked and I will be posting weekly reports again. Stay tuned!!

Between steady road building , the spring hunting season and numerous rivers around here are in their flood stage means I haven’t been getting out on the water much but I found some time this weekend to get out on the water!
We got on the water late and the fishing seemed to be a bit on the slow side for us. 2 hours went by trolling away and we ending up hooking a couple small feeder springs, which was still nice being the first salmon of the year for me!
I wanted to try out my plugs that I got from the Best Lure Company just to see how effective they would be for salmon and sure enough after a few passes under the bait balls I was able to hook into a smaller feeder spring. They are definitely worth their weight in gold as you don’t need to bring up your bait to check if it’s still good after a bump. I highly recommend visiting their website and purchasing a few lures to try out, you’ll be hooked! Cannot wait for the Skeena to drop so I can use them in the river!!
The water eventually ended up blowing us out so off to go try to find some calmer water to fish for halibut. We were able to catch a couple red snapper and ling cod but no halibut for us, and that’s fine as my freezer is still full from the spring halibut season!
It’s always a good day on the water, catching fish is just a bonus!!

Well one more trip to Kincolith for the season as my friend has been asking for a couple weeks for me to take him out for his first Halibut Trip. It was a beautiful day and the water was nice but ripping very hard so I had to move around until I found a nice ledge at 200 feet and we dropped the anchor and now the waiting game began.
You could tell that the eulachon were starting to peter out but there was still some big schools of herring around. I figured it would be fairly slow fishing but right off the bat we began to hook the odd tomcod and flounder which gave me hope that eventually the Halibut would come around!
About one hour after anchoring a small school of chickens came by and I was able to pull one up and soon after my buddy was hooked up to one, they ended up being twins! We fished for a few hours longer but it completely turned off and we were hardly hooking Cod anymore. So off we went to pull the crab traps which was a big success like always in Kincolith plus they were very big crab!
It was an awesome spring halibut season in the Nass Valley. If you are ever in the area it is definitely a must see. The highway takes you on a very scenic drive showing you many rivers and lake and also through the historic lava beds! Also many road side trails and attractions.
Some of the gear I used today was my Jet boat built by “Fish-rite” and engine made by “Yamaha”. My choice of tackle was a White Halibut drop Jig, Rod and Reel was a “Rapala RSC series rod” and a “Okuma Classic Pro reel” Also I held my Salmon Belly strips that I used for bait in my “Bait2go” bait holding system which is great for space and convenience!

This year will take me on a “new” sport fishing adventure one that I will work very hard to be successful at. A few weeks ago I launched my website Connor Sabo Fishing Reports. I have begun to post fishing reports for the whole northwest region of BC which will include just about all of our beautiful rivers, streams, lakes and oceans for all 5 species of Pacific Salmon, Trout, Dolly Varden Char and Steelhead. Ocean out of Kitimat, Stewart and Prince Rupert will include Salmon, Halibut, Bottom fish plus Dungeness Crab and Prawns. I will be reporting on all four seasons but my main focus will be spring, summer and fall (prime Tourism period). In winter I will be Lake Ice fishing and River fishing for wild Steelhead.
I will be promoting my sponsor products and business by taking pics, doing write ups, giving demonstrations and shooting videos. My GOAL is to give a major push to promote Tourism that our fabulous fishery brings year after year. If you are interested to purchase an Ad or Sponsor me, please contact me anytime. I have teamed up with Noel Gyger who is a legend in this area. He is retired now but still loves to help anglers get into fish; it’s in his blood. Your Ad will be fully promoted by both of us on both our websites for the price of one. Check out the reasonable prices on my Advertising webpage.
Some anglers wish to hire a fishing guide and ask for advice and info; I can help with that. Please keep in mind everyone is welcomed, guided or non-guided. I will be promoting the best places to buy souvenirs, tackle, camp out, eat and sleep. If you are interested to book with the best fishing guide please check out my Guided Fishing webpage.
Kalum River winter Steelhead from last year. I was casting a Rvrfshr spoon rigged with a Sickle Siwash hook. My dog is looking at the Steelhead rolling on the other side of the river. Guiding on this river is limited and can be guided only from April 1 to October 31. If you are interested to book a guided trip please contact me anytime.
