Fishing Report: Morice supports a good fishery for Rainbow, Cutthroat and Lake Char. This large lake will produce Lake Char to 12+ lbs., Rainbows to 6+ lbs. and Cutthroat to 3 lbs. Trolling is the most popular method whether using large plugs and spoons for Char, or using smaller lures for Rainbow and Cutthroat. However, fly fishing has met with excellent success, and it is well recommended stopping in at the local fly and tackle shop in Houston to enquire about what should be used in this lake, as well as other lakes in the region. Excellent Dolly, Cutthroat, Steelhead and Chinook salmon fishing can be found on the nearby Morice River. The river is fishable almost its entire length from the north end of Morice Lake to where it drains into the world famous Bulkley River near Houston. Most of the Morice River is road accessible. Drift gear and flies are used for Steelhead, while spoons and spinning gear are used mainly for Chinook salmon.

While on the subject of river fishing it must be mentioned that the North by Northwest region of British Columbia boasts many legendary Steelhead and Salmon rivers. Some of these include the Bulkley, Babine, Kispiox, Sustat, Suskwa, Skeena, Nass, Lakelse, Kitimat, Cranberry, Copper, Kalum and on the Queen Charlotte Islands are the Tlell and Yakoun rivers. These are just some of the of the more famous rivers which hold world record Steelhead trout, Chinook, Coho, Sockeye, Pink and Chum salmon. Steelhead which are usually fished either by float/drift or with flies (both wet and dry) have been caught and released up to 40+ lbs. Chinook salmon, known by many as Springs, Kings or Tyees, have been caught weighing up to 90 lbs., with most falling somewhere between 20 and 60 lbs. Large spin and glows, spoons and spinners are the lures of choice. If all this sounds exciting, click on the River Fishing section of this program.
