The fishing season begins in April and finishes in early November. Spring runoff brings fresh runs of Steelhead into many of our northern rivers. Spring Steelhead average 10-14lbs. with the occasional fish over 20lbs. July brings the big Kings the largest of the salmon species.
By mid July sockeye and pink salmon are starting to arrive in large numbers. Early August the Skeena has all five species of salmon as well as Steelhead. The Steelhead are migrating up the Skeena in large numbers through to mid-September. With fish on record over 30 lbs any angler has the chance at a fish of a lifetime. From early September the rivers are filling up with Coho (Silvers), providing excellent fishing as well as incredible wilderness scenery.
