April and May are outstanding for Steelhead in the rivers and Halibut and Chinook salmon on the Douglas Channel.
June is the very best time to back troll plugs and salmon roe in the Kitimat River Estuary for silver chrome Chinook salmon as the migrate upriver to the spawning grounds. You will experience a very active fishing with up to 20 hook ups during a tide change. June and July is also the time to take down the Drift boat on the Kitimat River where you can have great fishing as well for Chinook salmon while back trolling plugs or swinging the fly. In July we start targeting Coho Salmon on the ocean and still catch many Chinook salmon till middle of August, Halibut fishing is very good through the summer month. In the last week of August we start targeting our Coastal Rivers like the Kemano or Kitlope River for Coho salmon and if once experienced you will understand what I tried to explain, almost every cast promises you a Coho Salmon all day long!
The fishing for Halibut is getting really interesting in September till middle of November almost on every Halibut charter we released an oversized Halibut!
So I make a long story short to answer the question, fishing is good all year around in Kitimat, so you have many options to target different fish species at different times.
