Looking for big game fly fishing in freshwater? Like the challenge of hooking and landing big, sea-run fish? If so, we have just the package for you. Our Chinook (King) Salmon – fresh from the ocean and in peak condition – are chrome bright and extremely powerful. The Skeena Region offers the fly fisher prime opportunities to target aggressive Chinook Salmon in two seasons.
The Kalum River boasts an incredible Springer Chinook fishery with highly aggressive salmon averaging 15 to 30 pounds and reaching 40 pounds or more. Yes, these hefty fish readily take flies! The Kalum is a mid-sized river with many boulder-studded runs and cobble and gravel pools. It fly fishes well and is perfectly suited to Spey Casting with a double-handed rod. In Spring we may also fish the Skeena and Kitimat rivers. Late-running Steelhead are an additional attraction to this season.
In summer we target the Kitimat River for Chinook averaging 15 to 25 pounds and ranging up to 50 pounds. The Kitimat is a mid-sized river with cobble and gravel pools well-suited to swinging flies. Bonus fish abound here too; the Kitimat has prolific runs of Chum and Pink Salmon.
