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 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.

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.
