Skeena river Steelhead action September 11,2015 Guests of Westcoast Fishing Adventures hooking up swinging flies on the Skeena river, hooked up to some trophy steelhead while being guided by Gill McKean owner and 20 year guide out of Terrace BC Photos will tell the rest of the story. Steelhead are migrating through the lower to mid skeena in great numbers this season one only needs to hire a good guide or have experience with reading water and dealing with migrating fish to have some action on the water.
The copper river is blown at a this time coloring up the lower skeena as well however the weather looks to be improving the water will clean and the bite will be on. Tight lines to all. The love another steelhead fisherman shares with others is like this I love you as long as I get the run first. Quote Gill McKean.
The Skeena river steelhead run is looking strong and healthy we have experienced low water most of the 2015 season but as fall approaches the rains have begun to fall giving the avid angler and guide a little twist on hunting the mighty summer run skeena river steelhead. As the season progresses the numbers of fish in the systems of the North become plentiful giving guided anglers double digit days of hooking chrome can be more the norm.
Photos below are from Sept 5 /2015 Guests of Westcoast Fishing Adventures 2 of the anglers are new to Spey casting and both have now caught there first ever steelhead on the fly.

Chinook salmon fishing on the Skeena river through June, July, August is second to none the Kenai river in Alaska has all but dried up the last few years and the crowding is to much for most people to call a wilderness experience. Look to the Skeena the second largest river in BC to the mighty Fraser river the Skeena boasts Mountain scenery along its remote banks this 600KM river it is not hard to spread out giving our guests the ultimate experience.
Hello all We have been very busy with guiding this last week now I have a day off and guess what I am doing ?
