Chinook Fly Fishing

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 these aggressive Chinook Salmon in the early summer period on the Kitimat river system.

The Kitimat is a mid-sized river with cobble and gravel pools that are perfectly suited to swinging flies with a double-handed rod. The fish – averaging 15 to 25 pounds and ranging up to 40 pounds – are fresh off the tides and make every effort to return back to the salt chuck as quickly as possible! Kitimat Chinook return to the river in June and July, and bonus fish abound here too; the Kitimat has prolific runs of Chum and Pink Salmon in the month of July.
