The 2016 Skeena River Program
Spring Steelhead – the holy grail of flyfishing
We start the season in March/April in search for the holy grail of flyfishing which is swinging for big aggressive spring steelhead. We’ll concentrate our efforts on Skeena in its lower reaches between the town of Terrace and tidewater, where steelhead hold surprisingly close to the river’s edge in shallow tail outs and riffles. Please check out Salmon Junkies´s iconic Spring Steelhead movie here and judge yourself https://vimeo.com/66457561
Chinook - Not for the fainthearted
In July we will target the Kitimat, Copper, Kalum and Skeena rivers, depending on conditions. Skeena region Chinook average 20 to 40 pounds and range up to 80 pounds — and perhaps beyond. The Skeena’s biggest have been known to reach 100 pounds! Please note: Fly fishing for Chinooks is a 100% adrenaline activity. It is not for the fainthearted. On the other hand, for fly fishers after the juiciest kicks in fresh water, not much else can top it.

Skeena Summer camp - "Big Bang For The Buck"
Salmon and Steelhead fishing on the Lower Skeena is unparalleled. Renowned rivers such as the Babine, Kispiox, Sustut, Bulkley, Morice, Copper and Kalum enter the Skeena above our camp and all fish bound for these rivers must pass directly in front of us before reaching their spawning grounds. Only a day or two out of the ocean, at the peak of their size, you will now be able to fish lower main channel Skeena hosts vast numbers of migrating Chinook, Steelhead Coho, Sockeye, Chums and Pinks headed for numerous upriver tributaries. To take full advantage of this prolific fishery and offer a high-quality, high-value fishing adventure – for both novice and seasoned anglers alike.
Guests will stay at the on-river Skeena camp for the duration of their stay. On arrival, our staff will pick clients up at the airport, stop in the town of Terrace to pick up any supplies, then transport clients to the river, where camp staff will be waiting to receive them. After an orientation in camp, guests are welcome to string their rods together and fish for the remainder of the day.
In late summer and during fall we turn to the Skeena tributaries and hunt for surface active summer/fall steelhead. The fall fisheries have in many years been very popular in the Skeena region and for a good reason. Also here Salmon Junkies a Skagit Anglers will be able to offer some unique opportunities. Contact us for more info as the numbers of available rods are very limited
Join us to Skeena main stem and select tributaries in a full 6-day package – not the usual 5 days package – in company of some of the best and most hardcore Canadian steelhead guides available.
The area - Skeena River Valley
Many people believe that Skeena watershed is easy accessible and easy-going to fish. However that is not the case if you want to get most out of a week. Many of the best rivers and spots are more or less impossible to access without a local guide, and the only way to get there is by power full jetboat and local knowledge. Lastly some of the most attractive rivers are licensed with limited access for only a small numbers of people. Salmon Junkies have access to all classified water plus a well selected numbers of coastal river. But perhaps and more important we have probably the best team of Steelheads guides, that will share their darkest secrets and lead you to the fish.
