Westcoast Fishing Adventures
Skeena River, British Columbia
British Columbia is fast becoming the destination of choice for fishing enthusiasts wanting a wide variety of salmon and steelhead. Trophy Chinook (Kings), Coho (Silvers), Chum (Dog Salmon), Sockeye (Reds) and Pink Salmon along with Dolly Varden, Char and the best rainbow and cutthroat trout fishing that North America has to offer. Lets not forget that the Skeena region is home to the largest steelhead ever caught!
We have everything, except, overcrowded combat fishing. Although, you may experience the rare sighting of another fisherman.
Located in North Western B.C., just off the Pacific Coast, in the town of Terrace. You fly to Vancouver and then take a one-hour flight to this world-class fishery. Out of Vancouver you have choice of Hawk Air or Air Canada to get you to Terrace. They fish over thirty rivers, streams and lakes located on three completely different watersheds. They guide on the Skeena, Nass and Kitimat Rivers, including their tributaries. With all these great waters to fish, they can always put you on fish.
Imagine countless cascading waterfalls, deep emerald forests and carpets of moss, so thick that your feet don't make a sound, as you walk among giant spruce and Cedar trees. Imagine the majestic Bald Eagle soaring overhead and the magnificent Bull Moose standing with head held high in the early morning mist. Imagine massive snow covered mountain peeks as they glisten in the early morning sun. Imagine drifting quietly down turquoise colored rivers as they find their way towards the ocean. Imagine making a perfect cast and your fly landing gently on the water. Imagine your fly drifting through the deep tail-out. Imagine having all of this to yourself with rarely seeing the site of another fisherman. Don't just Imagine it, experience it!
