Author Topic: fishing in Prince Rupert for August 2005

Could any one direct me to a web site where I can get information about where to locate prawns and crabs and halibut in the Prince Rupert Are.
We are planning a family vacation, and will bring our own equipment, boat and camp, but have never fished that area,.
would the fishing department at the local canadian tire be a good place to seek information?,
thank you for your time and help

Do a search for the Chamber of Commerce in PR or the Visitors Bureau-often the same people in a small place.
Ask for the names/phone numbers of all Tackle Shops
-I know where the one is I used is but can't remember the name.
Phone them up on a quiet afternoon and ask advice.
Then once you're in town stop in, introduce yourself and buy a little gear/talk to people again once you get to town.
See if there isn't somewhere online that sells Charts and buy one-very important the Skeena is a big river and the area isn't always easy to navigate.
Forget Canadian Tire.

Prince Rupert..ahh..those are my digs..

The last post was pretty close to what you should do. I could add some few tips on places...good for a family and such. Rupert has a bonanza of fishing opportunities the Skeena is a great place to start if youre looking on getting some camping in. There are a few campsites between Rupert and Terrace..but its just as fun to camp on a rock bar to do some fishing at the same time. A pretty popular spot is Polymar bar (or China Bar). Accessible from the road if you have a 4x4 to get over a creek..which may at times be too deep to cross. Usually you will see alot of the locals lined up from the highway. August is the best for the bar..Having the opportunity to catch Springs, Pinks, Steelhead, and the early coho. Plunking with a spin and glo on a 11 foot casting rod is the preferred weapon of choice. Dont miss out on the trout though..cast a small line out with roe to pick up a dolly or cutthroat which get pretty big at times. Saltwater fishing is even better. (local store) Traylings tackle workers should be able to help you out with that one. Usually fishers head out from Port Edward, just a few minutes drive away. And for crabs. Just drop one close to where you see others. haha. Hope this helps. Cheers and good luck.
