BC Steelhead Availability On The Skeena System

Now is your chance to finally make the pilgrimage to the Skeena River system, North America’s most iconic steelhead fishery! We have some amazing last minute availability at some of the most exclusive steelhead lodges in British Columbia, Canada, due to cancellations. Whether you are looking for your first steelhead trip ever, or looking to land the fish of your lifetime, there is no better time and place to make your dreams come true than at these top steelhead destinations.

Swinging flies for steelhead is not for everyone, but for the hard-core few,

there is nothing else. You can see it in their eyes… They get worked up talking about swinging flies. Their hands shake a little, their eyes glaze, they talk a little faster and they tell stories about the cold or the wind or that the water was huge or low, and the fishing was tough. But this is usually a point of pride, not a complaint...How can anyone get so excited about that?

There is no other grab like it in our sport. There is a moment when that slowly swinging fly stops moving, and your heart stops beating. You can’t breathe, you feel the sweat rise on your brow and your palms, even though it’s freezing cold on the river today. You just hope the fish will turn and burn with your fly. You wait another moment and start to panic… Is it going to take it? Then the fish does its thing. It feels the hook and gives you everything it’s got to get rid of it. As the line screams off of your reel, your only chance is to let it run, because there is no way you can stop a freight train with 15# Maxima. As it cartwheels across the pool, you will forget all of the long hours you waited for that grab. As you cradle the amazing fish, with its head under water before the release, you realize you are willing to throw another thousand casts for the chance that it might happen again.
