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? ?
If you should happen to come across the page and would like to know more about Skeena river Steelhead please feel free to contact me on Face book or email @ firstname.lastname@example.org or visit of web site www.westcoastfishing.ca and drop us a line ______________________we would be happy to hook you up !
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.
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.
