Skeena river Steelhead guides action report September 11,2015

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.

When fishing the skeena you never know what might grab your fly Dave found out !

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.

 

Skeena river fishing report.

Skeena river fishing report.

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.

Westcoast Fishing Adventures So Far…..

We have had a very busy season, we have met some great new clients and enjoyed our long time guests, who have turned out to be like family.

This summer we were faced with some low water conditions, which made for a bitter sweet problem: it was easier to catch fish. We are expected to have a “make up winter” this year, and building up our Snow Pack Levels for next year!  Bring it on!

We have a few new additions to the Equipment this year, making our hunt for the Salmon & Steelhead more enjoyable 😀

Please feel free to contact us for the Remote Spring Steelhead Camp, as we have only one week available. 1-866-578-8552 or info@westcoastfishing.ca or fill out a reservation form at www.westcoastfishing.ca

Fly Fishing for Chinook Salmon

The Chum Salmon fishery has been recluse these past few years.

With Raleigh Werking via Westcoast Fishing Adventures, holding countless line and class records for these Majestic creatures.

This year they have returned in great numbers and in history size.

If you haven’t caught these beasts on a fly line, then it is a fishery that is a must try! The weather is at its finest, as well as all five salmon species are gathering and commuting all in the same place at the same time!

Recently we had a guest from Japan who, with little English told us that the Chum are not fished for. “No Good” as he stated, but when He caught a few of the mighty and powerful  ‘scrappers’ his tune changed to “ Chum Good Fight” He also fished with many different reels, lines and rods created for all different types of fish and fishery.  Here are a couple pictures of his trip:

Mr Yamada used a variety of rods and reels, but this particular rod is of complete surprise and is very interesting to me, it is 30 foot pole with a line tied to the end of it (with NO reel),  at first I was dumbfounded by its presence, but to watch him fight fish with it, was exhilarating and  invigorating.  I am very eager to see what gear he brings with him for his trip this spring.  I brought him into our Remote Steelhead Wilderness Camp this past April, and Mr Yamada was in Bliss with the fresh, bright chromer Steelhead that is surrounded by amazingly beautiful scenery and the Steelies are plentiful. 

I’m looking forward to another Spring Season, meeting new clients/friends and hosting our returning guests.

I just wanted to thank all our long time guests for helping our business be successful! This will be our 16th year, and every year gets better and better!

Fishing is our Addiction! Guiding is our Passion! Adventure is in our Blood!

Tight Lines!

Chinook Salmon on the Skeena river.

 

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.
