Default Fishing near Terrace

Hey guys,

Just wondering if you have gone out near Terrace before, both fresh and salt. Any suggestions would be great.

Thanks

Default kitimat and Terrace

I was just there at the end of July, fishing was amazing!
I posted 2 videos to Youtube, 1 of the Skeena and the second on the Kitimat. Got some tips in there to get you started.

It's been a few years but I will say that I have fished the Skeena from shore, with a heavy rod, 60 lb. test and a bottom rig with a spin and glow, and the salmon fishing was great. Be prepared to take a long while to land the big salmon from shore. Be sure you have no log jams upstream or downstream along the shoreline because you might be chasing the salmon to gain line. A heavy spoon on a medium weight rod was great for sea run trout too.
I fished between Old Remo and 25 miles downstream. The north shoreline along side of hwy 16. I went fishing there and ended up staying for 6 months, just for the fishing.

Great fish! Has anybody here fished that area for chinook with a spey rod? I have a 10 wt fly rod, 9 ft. I don't think it would stand up long to fish like that in those conditions. It would be until the big "SNAP!".
