I can't believe Kitimat is still having the old fashioned "kill a fish derby". These are being eliminated all over canada because they are hard on the fish stocks. They only benefit a few businessmen ( tackle store owners and guides) and I would bet if you polled the local population very few would actually support it. If you want to have good fishing in kitimat river, quit advertising as this only benefits business.
