Skeena river Steelhead guides

Skeena river steelhead this page is dedicated to chasing wild steelhead on the Skeena river, Fly fishing for these creatures is addicting and can be consuming hence the steelhead “BUM” it has been 20 years this season I have been guiding these great rivers of north west BC. I have been able to see and do things that most would envy however the rewards are great but not with out hard work and many hours of dedication to this sport are you rewarded on a regular basis. I have witnessed so many anglers some amazing casters that did not know how to fish and casters that could not cast 20 ft catch the largest steelhead Ive ever seen. So how does that describe the elusiveness of this creature we chase? ?

Fly fishing steelhead & coho salmon on the Skeena,Nass,Kitimat rivers out of Terrace BC

Hello all.

We have experienced a historic weather in the north west for the last to months making water levels high and un-fishable at times so when this happens we go fly fishing on the local lakes that are often over looked in the Terrace Skeena region. attached are some photos of the lake fishing that took place in the last couple weeks.

It is now Sept 15th and water conditions have returned to normal levels however the fish have either returned to the Ocean or made their way to higher ground where we the fishermen & women cannot bother them i expect the fresh fish to make there way back into the Skeena,Nass,Kitimat rivers in the coming days as things have returned to normal letting the fish sit in the happy places where we can swing flies and continue our recreation.

Making for tight lines & happy faces we still have some open dates for anyone looking to hook a trophy Salmon or Steelhead October is the month to get this done with much more stable conditions due to cooler temps.

We look forward to hearing form anyone with ? about the Skeena,Nass,Kitimat fisheries.

Fly fishing Salmon & Steelhead on the Skeena river Terrace BC Fishing Report.

Hello all, the last few weeks have been very busy. The last two weeks of August were very wet to say the least, with the odd dry day mixed in. However this is what makes Terrace BC Skeena country so green, all this water supports an amazing water shed with all 5 speices of pacific salmon, as well as Rainbow Trout & Dolly Varden. We also had the opportunity to have the New Fly Fisher film crew here, Thomas Rosenbauer & Jeremy Kennedy to document this incredible fly fishery, while filming we encountered almost every fish that swims the mighty Skeena river. Steelhead, Coho salmon, Pink salmon, Dolly Varden; you name it, we caught it!  I am looking forward to seeing it air on WFN world fishing network some time in the New Year. Stay tuned.

Our guide season is still in full swing, it is now prime time to book your Steelhead & Coho salmon fishing trip, we still have some open spots so if you have not booked and been sitting on the fence, wait no longer get er done.

We look forward to the next two months of great fishing On the Skeena River, Nass River, Kitimat River and most of their tributaries.

Tight Lines to all.

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.
