Terrace BC fishing guide for Steelhead & Salmon on the Fly.

Terrace BC fishing guide for Steelhead & Salmon Westcoast Fishing Adventures 20 years of hooking up ! Report for Jan 14 2016 – The weather has started to break with temps just above the freezing level this will slowly see the ice off the rivers. The Kalum river is closed Nov 15 to guiding until April 15 at which point most of the summer and winter steelhead will be spawning, I recommend leaving these fish un-harassed to lay their eggs for future generations. however the main stem Skeena will have great fishing for some monster steelhead as well as the spring chinook. March,April,May the Kitimat river is fishing well Large Steelhead start there migration into the Kitimat river in March & the Runs build from there on. April,May – You can expect to hook Steelhead & Chinook on the same day.

Skeena river steelhead are now in the river. Remote Steelhead Camp

The Skeena river Steelhead are now running. This is what we live for at Westcoast Fishing Adventures. It’s been a while since my last report so here we go. We kicked off our season with our famous Remote Spring Steelhead Camp, again another huge success! Guests from around the world enjoyed a wild river & bright chrome straight from the sea Steelhead by day, and the comforts of a professional camp by night.

As the season progressed, the fishing just got better. Our guests experienced some of the finest Steelhead fishing the world can offer. We are now moving on to the summer run Steelhead on the Skeean & Nass Systems. We will again be setting up our Wall tent camp giving all our guests a trip of a life time, by allowing them to be first on the water, thus giving them more opportunities to hook the fish of their dreams. While most visitors to the Skeena region will be competing for water on the Copper river and Kalum river, racing from trial head to mile maker 32, we will seek refuge in our remote tent camp with a hot cup of coffee and warm fire. Then when the time is right, head to the waters edge to start our day.

Season review to date.

With the Chinook season over and the pink salmon & sockeye salmon coming to an end we are seeing great returns of Coho Salmon & Steelhead so far it appears the Steelhead run is an average size however it is to early to tell what may be swimming in the Skeena any day, we have had some great days swinging flies on the Skeena hooking all speices during your guided fishing day the weather has been very cool and damp for August however the rivers have been in great shape with over cast skies giving anglers the best of both worlds.

We still have some available dates in September & October for Coho salmon & Steelhead Fly fishing for these incredible fish on one of our many pristine rivers is like nothing else you will experience we guide on 30 remote rivers in the Skeena,Kitimat,Nass regions.

We look forward to hearing from you.
