Click here to enlarge Tip&Trick Description 1: 'Greenwood Lake'


Greenwood Lake is located in both New Jersey and New York. There are several launching ramps throughout the lake located in both states. The ramps are well maintained, and can accommodate both large and small boats. In the southern end of the lake, at South Shore Marina, there are a couple ramps, and there are others, all the way to the upper end at Olde Point Marina in New York. Many of the marinas are full service, with restroom facilities, gas, picnic areas, and lodging. When you get about half way up the lake, at Happy Landing Marina, that is where the New York portion starts, in the Sterling Forest area. This is one of New Jersey's larger lakes at 1,920 acres, and it has a maximum depth of 57 feet at full pool.

Lake Profile

Greenwood Lake is a natural lake, located mostly in the state of New York. Belcher Creek is the main tributary.

In the winter, drawdowns lower the water in Greenwood about 2 to 5 feet. The water is Eutropic, with frequent algae blooms in the summer. Visibility is from about 3-6 feet, but sometimes it becomes cloudy after it rains, especially near the shore. In the summer there is a thermocline at about 20 feet. Most of the original lakebed, and the South flat, have muck and silt, but the rest of the lake has a hard bottom, that is mostly boulders and rocks, and the rest is sand and gravel. There are a lot of submerged points and humps throughout the lake. The lake has steep hills, and small wetlands are in the South and north ends. Most of the shoreline is privately owned, and has a lot of houses and marinas.

Species Available

The main species are largemouth bass, Muskies, and smallmouth bass. There are other species also, such as Chain Pickerel, Yellow Perch, Bluegills, and Walleye. There are also good populations of catfish. There is a lot of pressure at Greenwood, but catch and release fishing allows Greenwood to maintain a good population of Largemouth bass. It is rated among New Jersey top 3 Largemouth bass waters. Most of the bass average around 15 inches, but we have caught seven pounders on occasion. Smallmouth fishing is getting better, but the largemouth bass still outnumber them. Sometimes smallmouths in the 4 to 5 pound range are caught, and some nice Chain Pickerel are caught also. We generally use suspending jerk-baits, such as a Rapala, or a Rogue, in shad patterns, for the largemouth and Chain Pickerel early in the year. Muskies have been stocked also, and in early 1991, the state started stocking Tiger Muskies also. I don't generally fish for them myself, but friends and other anglers tell me that they are doing well. Greenwood is loaded with panfish, especially white perch, and they catch a lot in the 1-2 pound range. The main forage base is alewife, and panfish, along with Golden Shiners, and various minnows.

Best Times and Locations

The best times for Largemouth bass is in the spring, starting in April, or when the water reaches about 50 degrees. As soon as the water reaches about 53-55 degrees, the bass move to the shallows. The bays and coves are loaded with stumps and weeds, and they turn on first. We have had good luck in the past fishing the two channels at Greenwood Lake Village, and west of Fox Island. We start working the cover in these areas with lipless crankbaits, usually in shad patterns. The bass usually start spawning in early May, and it lasts until the middle of June. Floating Rapalas, soft Jerk-baits, and Senkos work the best. Although we have taken them on lizards and tubes also.
The bass in Greenwood like weed beds, but avoid the ones that have been treated, as they don't produce well. We stay on the outside edges in about 10-12 feet of water, and the areas around Storms Island and north of Fox Island,
are the best. Another good location is the shallow beds west of Fox Island, and north of Chapel Island. We use a lot of topwater baits here in the summer, and have had the best results with Zara Spooks, Nip-A-Dee-Dees, and Terminator buzzbaits, at dawn and dusk. During the day, we like to use Senkos, or 4' worms, and cast them to the edges of the grass, and in pockets. Docks and piers hold bass all day long. Try skipping a Senko or worm as far back under the docks into the shaded areas as possible. The farther back the better.
If you are after smallmouth bass, concentrate on the deeper, rockier, New York portions of the lake. Smallmouth bass seem to like the combinations of weeds and rocks, especially on points. The 10-12 foot depths, on the drop-offs, where there is a gravel bottom work the best. We have caught some nice smallmouths at night also, by casting small topwater baits, such as Pop-R's. Early in the mornings, you will do well with a 1/2 ounce Rat-L-Trap in about 2-6 feet of water, where there is a gravel bottom.
You can get a lot of good information about Greenwood from the local tackle stores, and some have maps with GPS locations. Remember to practice Catch, Photo, and Release, and there will be great fishing in Greenwood for many years to come

Noel Gyger - WEEKLY FISHING REPORT dated March 8 – March 15, 2009

Dear Fishing Friends:

SUMMARY: The weather has been pretty good all week. Guiding on the Kalum River has started as of today, March 15th. The guides and their clients should be really happy as the water is in excellent shape there are lots of Steelhead in the river now. Both fly and spin methods should work well. The lower Zymoetz (Copper) River is open to Steelhead fishing. For the Kitimat River and Douglas Channel please check out the Ron Wakita report below. Lots of new stuff posted on the website this week.

Our rivers, oceans and our fish are in peril. Our governments, Federal and Provincial, are very slow to react to protect them therefore we need to take action ourselves whenever we can.

I usually don’t comment on the conservation items posted as they speak for themselves but I am alarmed that there are three postings this week! I really hope you all can find the time to read them all. I would like to draw to your attention to one particular posting. Please cast here and add your name to a wild Salmon petition presented by Alexandra Morton…then…please forward this link to all on your e-mail lists. Alex/we needs at least 5000 signatures.

March 12, 2009 One 'New' video clip:

Steelhead fishing on the Kalum River last fall was absolutely fantastic! These fish winter over and are still in the river at this time. If you are interested to book a trip for these beauties please contact me soon. Cast here to watch the video under Video Clips (Title: Steelhead - Tail Walkers and is 2009 Steelhead Video Clip #0068)

NOW BOOKING FOR 2009 Let me know if I can be of service to book you with the 'best' fishing guide and/or fishing lodges for both river and ocean. 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. It is like hiring two guides for the price of one. I will promptly answer your questions and concerns. Cast here to read more of what I have to offer.

BOOK EARLY and save money! The Canadian Dollar is low right now. Which way will the Canadian Dollar and the exchange rates go? The answer is no one knows. The Canadian Dollar is low at this time (as of today, March 15) A typical Weekly Lodge Package for 7 days/6 nights/5 days of guided fishing will cost $3500 Canadian Dollars in 2009. With the current exchange rate it will now cost $2752.00 in United States Dollars. A savings of $748.00 I would suggest you BOOK NOW before exchange rates go the other way. Cast here for current money conversion rates. Contact me anytime for package details.

Many people book three trips per year to our area; one trip in the spring (March-April-May), one trip in the summer (June-July-August) and one trip in the fall (September-October-November). They love having the same guide but fishing for different fish in different areas.

Be sure to check out my website at for news bulletins, mid week fishing updates, conservation, my history, quality waters strategy, special guided fishing trips, video clips, scenic river photos, wildlife photos and others, comments from past guests, informational articles, archived fishing reports from 1996 through 2002 and a sportfishing market place. I hope it meets with your entire satisfaction.

CURRENT REPORT and summary for Skeena and Tributaries:

TYPE OF FISH CAUGHT: Steelhead and Trout for river. Salmon, Halibut, Bottom Fish and Dungeness Crab for ocean.

Thank you for using barbless hooks.


LARGEST FISH OF THE WEEK: Specie: Angler: Where: (none reported this week)

WEATHER: Cloudy. 60 percent chance of flurries this morning and of rain showers this afternoon. High plus 4. Sunrise 7:49 AM Sunset 7:37 PM. Today’s yearly average temperatures: Maximum 8 degrees. Minimum -1 degrees.

WEATHER REPORTS VIA TELEPHONE: Terrace 250-635-4192 Kitimat 250-632-7864 Prince Rupert 250-627-1155 Smithers 250-847-1958.

SKEENA RIVER: Is in good shape, low and clean but still frozen over in spots. Be very careful walking on those ice shelves. The spots that are open can have some drifting ice. Should be a few Steelhead and Trout one can catch.

KALUM RIVER: Is in good shape. Good numbers of Steelhead are in the river now. Fishing for them with fly or spin tackle works well. The water is extremely low and the fish are easily spooked. Walking around is getting a little easier as a lot of the snow has melted. The boat ramps are getting easier to access.

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.

ZYMOETZ (COPPER) RIVER: Is fishing well for Steelhead right now. The upper section is closed to angling as of December 31 but the lower section below the first canyon will stay open for the winter Steelheaders to enjoy.

Fishing Report from: Ron Wakita of Reliable Guide and Charters.

KITIMAT RIVER: The winter weather continues as we received hefty snowfalls on Wednesday and Thursday night. We usually don't have to shovel our driveways in March but this year snow continues to fall and we continue to shovel. Such is life in the North West.

Despite the snowfalls in the middle of the week Ariel Kuppers and Jesse Houston were out fishing for Steelhead on the Kitimat River. Jesse lost a Steelhead last week when they were fishing for trout so they geared up this week with Steelhead tackle. This week while fishing for Steelhead Jesse landed two Cutthroat Trout. They didn't catch the Steelhead they were looking for this week but at least they caught the trout they were looking for last week.

Ariel was a little 'pumped up' to catch Steelhead because he was talking to a biologist in
our tackle store. This biologist who is conducting a Eulachon study on the Kitimat was netting the lower river for Eulachon when he caught a bright, chrome 18lb. Steelhead in his net. After hearing this biologist describing this beautiful Steelhead Ariel was pretty 'pumped' and so was I. Only people that fish can relate to the emotions of the hardcore angler. Such is life in the North West.

DOUGLAS CHANNEL: I was speaking to Bill (sorry I forgot his last name) who caught two feeder Chinook last weekend in the Kitimat Harbour. 'I caught them right in front of MK Marina' said Bill who appeared pretty proud of his catch. 'I caught them on the Old Stand-by Lure? Bill said pausing for me to guess. I responded, 'With Luhr Jensen's Tom Mack #5 50/50' (which is half chrome and half brass). Bill said, 'No I was using a Tom Mack #5 straight chrome'. I corrected him stating that the Old Stand-by was the Tom Mack #5 50/50 and that the Tom Mack #5 chrome was the Old Stand-by's twin brother. He insisted that the chrome was the 'Old Stand-by'. Only anglers can get into a debate over specific details of which lure is better or which specific fishing holes are better, or which boat is better, or which rod and so on. Most debates among anglers are seldom settled. My official scoring on this issue is that the Tom Mack #5 50/50 is the 'Old Stand-by' but the Tom Mack #5 chrome was the lure on record for Bill's catch last weekend. Congratulations on your catch Bill. Such is life in the North West.

Only in the North West can we scan back through the pictures on our digital cameras and view pictures of the activities we have enjoyed in all the different seasons. We can view pictures of Ice fishing in Onion Lake or Lakesle Lake. Winter Steelheading on the Copper River or the Kalum. Snowboarding, Snowmobiling, Skiing, Hockey or Trolling for Winter Chinook. We can scroll further back into the fall we may have pictures of Hunting, Coho fishing, Hiking, Mushroom picking, High School Volleyball, Basketball or Curling or crabbing. Scroll back into the summer pictures of Noel Gyger, Chinook, camping, Pinks, Chum, Summer Run Steelhead, Graduation and so on. Spring pictures may include Steelheading on the Kitimat, Gardening, Bottom Fishing, Steelhead or Chinook fishing on the Kalum, Spring Bear Hunting, Golfing or hiking.
Here are a few pictures from my camera. Such is life in the North West. We are truly blessed. Until next week…Tight lines. Ron Wakita
