Click here to enlarge Tip&Trick Description 1: Hot Weather Bass in Delaware
By Steve VonBrandt

Some of the best ponds during the heat, day or night, have been Millsboro, Killens, and Canal pond. First of the closest ponds to both upper and lower Delaware is Killens in Dover. Killens is located right off rt.13. Turn left onto State Park Road, follow the road around the curve, past the main park entrance, and about a mile and a half down the road is the pond. It has parking for about six to eight trucks with trailers, with an adequate launching ramp. Killens is a state park, and they also rent boats and cabins, but you will find little competition for bass except on the weekends.

Most of Killens is 1-5 feet deep at the shoreline, except in the extreme upper end, where it is just inches deep. The lake has an Island in the center with some wood cover and grass. It drops off to 6 feet quickly on the channel side(main lake), and is about 3 feet on the right side. This is a particularly good area to work in the day with 'Senko's' in 4 and 5 inch sizes in black and watermelon on a 3/0WG hook, with 8 & 10 lb test line. In addition, clacker type buzzbaits produce bass in the three to six pound range many times in this area, even in the bright afternoon sun. A Tournament frog is a good choice for the pads especially in the daytime heat. The action will be slower, but you can connect with some big explosions through the grass and pads at times. A Tournament frog is the best choice of topwater, and a 1/2 ounce in black works best all around. Vary the retrieve, both day and night, sometimes letting the frog sit after hitting the water,! as long as 30 seconds, then use a few quick hops. If this doesn't produce, try working it very fast and pausing only once, on the way back to the boat. This is especially effective in large pads.

Jigs in black and blue take their fair share of nice bass from here also, but you must be extremely accurate and quiet in your presentations or you will not connect. The bass will be in the heaviest of cover, lying in wait for a slow moving, crippled bait to come overhead.


Fishing at night when the water cools to 70-75 degrees, should not frighten you in exploring shallow water right at the drop-offs on the left side of the lake with buzzbaits cast to the main channel edge. Do not be afraid to experiment with some older, forgotten baits, such as a 'Devils Horse', or similar prop baits. They work wonders sometimes in highly pressured lakes.


Millsboro Pond is in Sussex County, Delaware, in the town of Millsboro off Isabella and Main Street. It has room for only a few boats, and the launching ramp is very shallow, you can get off all right, but getting back on the trailer can be real tricky. Most of the lake is shallow, with lots of grass. It has several Islands, but the bass go to shallow water at night in the upper end. Buzzbaits are best, but Tournament frogs work well also, in the day and night. Several bass have been caught in the 3 to 6 pound range in the past at night, using the Frog and Senko's mostly in the day. Cast the buzzbait wherever possible at night, it is worth removing the grass. Use Senko's by the lower end of the lake in deeper water in the day, and do not forget to let them sit a long time, raise the pole once or twice, and then cast again. Use these techniques and bring plenty of insect repellent, and you will connect with some lunkers, and many other 2 and 3 pounders.


Canal Pond is located by the railroad bridge in the C&D Canal area. Turn right under St.Georges Bridge and follow the road to the pond. It has beautiful structure, pads, and has a deep shoreline with a deep hole. This was where a few years ago, the 30 pound landlocked Striped bass was caught. There are some real Lunker largemouth's still there also. You will need a small cartop boat to fish it, but it is worth the trouble of getting in. It is about 30 acres of real good dropoffs, and structure, where bass up to 9 pounds have been caught. Please remember to practice Catch, Photo, and Release so we can all enjoy the bass fishing there for a long time to come. SENKO's and 4' straight tailed worms work best throughout the year in watermelon and green. At times spinnerbaits and frogs will work, but this is a plastics lake.

Noel Gyger - WEEKLY FISHING REPORT dated August 12 – August 19, 2007

Dear Fishing Friends:

On August 16, I was invited to fly fish with Dustin Kovacvich, owner of Nicholas Dean Lodge and his three guests (father-son-daughter). They were flyfishing on the Skeena River for Steelhead, Sockeye, Coho and Pink Salmon. Both Spey fly rods and single hand fly rods were used. I lost count of all the fish they hooked but I managed to take video of 3 Steelhead, 3 Sockeye, 3 Pinks and 1 Coho and I didn't even stay with them the full day. In addition, I was also able to shoot numerous high rez photos. I'd guess they caught about 60 fish. It was an absolute fantastic day!

The Skeena River had been dropping steady and was in great shape...but…everything changed on the afternoon of August 16 when lightening, thunder and heavy rain struck. The next day the water had coloured up.

Cast to and watch two New video clips posted this week. They are titled and numbered:

1. Gary fly fishing Skeena River Steelhead. Video clip number 0043
2. Dustin Spey fly fishing Skeena River Steelhead. Video clip number 0044

The Kitimat River spin and fly fishermen are catching Coho, Chum and Pink on the low end. Ocean fishing in the Douglas Channel “out front” and “down the channel” is great. Check out the Ron Wakita report and photos below.

Let me know if I can be of service to book you with the 'best' fishing guide and/or fishing lodges. There are NO extra charges to book through me, just a lot of free information and advice from a person with years and years of fishing and fish guiding experience. Your questions and concerns will be promptly answered by me. Cast here to read more of what I have to offer and review the latest updates regarding last minute openings. Contact me for all the details and to book. These dates are updated on the website whenever there is a change.

Be sure to check out my website at for more info on my history, Quality Waters Strategy, special guided fishing trips, video clips, scenic river photos, wildlife photos and others, comments from past guests, informational articles and archived fishing reports from 1996 through 2002. I hope it meets with your entire satisfaction.

CURRENT REPORT and summary for Skeena and Tributaries:

Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) Salmon forecast for 2007: Chinook look very good for the Skeena and Kitimat systems; Coho are good to excellent; Pink expect a reasonably good run; Sockeye returns to the Skeena are expected to be good this year; Chum average return.

TYPE OF FISH CAUGHT: Coho, Chum, Sockeye, Pink and Steelhead in the river. Halibut, Bottom Fishing and Coho in the ocean Kitimat Douglas Channel and Prince Rupert.

Thank you for using barbless hooks.


LARGEST FISH OF THE WEEK: Specie: 18-pound Steelhead Where: Skeena River Angler: Dusty Kovacvich. In addition: a 85-pound Halibut from the Douglas Channel was caught by Tom Snider.

WEATHER: Cloudy with sunny periods. Highs to 18 degrees C. Region normal: Max. Temp. 22 degrees C. Min. Temp. 11 degrees C. Sunrise 6:17 am Sunset 8:59 pm

WEATHER REPORTS VIA TELEPHONE: Environment Canada taped messages constantly updated, giving current conditions and three day forecasts. Terrace 250-635-4192 Kitimat 250-632-7864 Prince Rupert 250-627-1155 Smithers 250-847-1958.

For current Terrace weather information please cast on:

WATER CONDITIONS: The Skeena River water levels have been dropping but all that changed on the afternoon of August 16 when the heavy rain came. The water came up for a couple of days but has stabilized and is dropping again. It looks fishable today. The Kitimat River is up and down but has been fishable all week. The Kalum River is clean. Other Skeena tribs towards Prince Rupert are clean.




SKEENA RIVER: Fishing is good for Sockeye throughout the whole system. Pinks are showing in abundant numbers. Coho fishing seems strong. We are keeping and eye on it. Fly fishing for Steelhead has been pretty good. We are keeping an eye on it. The main stem is the “highway” for Salmon and Steelhead heading to their many different tributary rivers.

KALUM RIVER: Waiting for the main run of Coho now. The early run that swims quickly through the whole river and into Kalum Lake has started. The distance is about 20 kilometers. They seem to mill around in the lake at the mouth of the Beaver (upper Kalum River) and Cedar Rivers until the water is the correct height, then they shoot up. If your timing is good you can catch them in the lake. Sockeye are in the river now but are closed to angling.

This is a Classified River year round and can be guided from March 15 through October 15 only. The Steelhead record is 32-pounds. To see a photo of this fish cast to: The angler is Dennis Therrien.

KASIKS RIVER: Waiting for Coho now. A few will be swimming in on the low end.

EXCHAMSIKS RIVER: Waiting for Coho now. A few will be swimming in on the low end.

EXSTEW RIVER: Waiting for Coho now.

NOTICE: the above three rivers fishing for Coho is a “change your life” experience. Check it out sometime.

GITNADOIX RIVER: Waiting for Coho now. They seem to school up in calm pools on the lower end. Access to this river is difficult. Jet boat only.

ZYMOETZ (COPPER) RIVER: When the water is clean a few Steelhead have been caught in the lower end. The rainstorm we had on August 16th blew out the river. By Sunday it was starting to come back into shape. Dirty water from the Copper flows into the Skeena.

KINCOLITH RIVER: Coho should be coming in on high tides.

TSEAX RIVER: Coho should be coming in now.

KWINIMASS RIVER: Coho are coming in now

ECSTALL RIVER: Coho should be coming in now.


The above two photos are my good friends Guy and Astrid Gangl of Luxembourg. They were enjoying their first Halibut charter out of Prince Rupert with their guide Randy Marshall of Randy’s River Guiding in Terrace. This was their 10th return trip to Terrace.

A summary of what is available year round can be read in the Archived Fishing Report dated April 13, 1997. For a direct link cast here:

FISHING REPORT FROM: Nicholas Dean Lodge Fishing Report for the Week of August 12 to 18, 2007

The fishing on the Skeena has been incredible over the past week, as many of our guests experienced. Although Pinks and Sockeye are the main species hitting flies, there have also been some acrobatic Coho and freight train Steelhead landed. These fish are chrome bright, just a day or two from the Ocean and are at their peak condition. Needless to say, their fighting qualities are excellent!

And each day that goes by, more Steelhead and Coho enter the Skeena, making you wonder what the next pull on your fly or lure will be…

Contact Noel to book your trip NOW! There are a few spots left this year.

Until next week, tight lines and screaming reels…

CURRENT REPORT and summary for Northern Coastal Rivers:

Fishing Report from: Reliable Guide and Charters


The river is in great fishing condition. There continues to be an excessive number of Pink salmon. The state of the Pink salmon range from bright with sea lice to some that are humped up and well into their spawning colours.

The Chum salmon return has yet to reach the typical numbers that the Kitimat
River is famous for. Some of the Chum are also transforming into their
spawning colour and developing their canine teeth that the Chum are known
for. And so goes the natural course of the salmon spawning cycle.

The Coho are starting to show in increasing numbers. Pat Oliver, Mark
Girard and Alex Nemaeth (the three amigos) drifted Friday August 17th and
hooked six Coho and landed four. They are all associate guides for Reliable
Guide and Charters Ltd who are doing 'home work' drifts in preparation for Coho
bookings we have for later in the month.

Our mobile tackle van is also reporting higher than average numbers of Coho
being caught in the lower Kitimat. Most of the Coho are being caught on
Pink Jigs and Koho 45 spoons.


The Kitimat Harbour fishery is starting to show more Coho. Wes Owens of
Golden Adventures boated four Coho and one Chinook on August 17th. Other
boaters are experiencing similar catch rates. The Harbour fishery should start to really pick up with each high tide.

The Douglas Channel continues to produce halibut. Tom Snider and his fishing partner Brendon Hodge boated 5 halibut. We scaled one which weighed in at 85lbs. There was another one in the boat which was also close to the same weight. They also caught a 25lb Ling Cod and many other assorted bottom fish. This is typically a really good time for halibut fishing in the northern end of Douglas Channel (closer to Kitimat) because of the number of spawned out carcasses of Pinks and Chum drifting out of the numerous creeks and rivers. All the bottom fish migrate into the inner waters of the Douglas Channel to feed and accordingly most boaters also take advantage of this natural migration of bottom fish.

A REMINDER: for any anglers interested in participating in the Kitimat
Chamber of Commerce Fishing Derby on the Labour Day weekend in September.
Stay tuned to this fishing report for more details.

Thank You to everyone who contributed to this report.
