Steelhead fishing the Skeena river swinging the fly !

Fly fishing on the Skeena river can be very rewarding however the region is vast there are so many rivers with many different species running at different times – Summer run steelhead – Winter run steelhead – Spring run steelhead & of course all the salmon Sockeye Salmon – Pink Salmon – Coho Salmon – Chinook Salmon – Chum Salmon,  so the question that is asked what is the best time to be fly fishing the Skeena river or tributaries of the Nass or Kitimat rivers.

Kuo with a trophy Coho Salmon caught on a pink foam fly on the surface.

If this is your first time to the Skeena region we highly recommend a good licensed guide www.westcoastfishing.ca with so many rivers to choose from and timing of runs its key to be in the right place at the right time, a lot of money can be spent on travel to Terrace and your dream fishing trip could be a bust if your not in the right place at the right time doing the right thing.

With this said we will be attending the Sacramento ISE show offering fully guided fishing trips to Skeena country for the 2014.

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.
