The gentlemen who caught this fish was guest of Tracey Hittel of Kitimat Lodge.

November 6, 2011. Hi Noel, Thank you again for all your help with our trip this fall. As you know, we had driven down to Idaho this fall for the first time to fish Steelhead with the rivers in Terrace and Smithers being high. The experience fishing the rivers down there just did not compare to Skeena Country. When we got word from you on Monday October 3rd that the rivers in Terrace were coming down in height, we hopped in our truck and drove 1800km to spend the remaining 5 days of fishing around Terrace and Smithers. We had an amazing trip and hooked several Steelhead and a few Coho. Really appreciate your help and tremendous knowledge of the area! As requested I have attached a few photos. Thank you, Dave Brown Pic is Dave with a Bulkley River Steelhead.
