The remote coastal rivers of Northwestern British Columbia host superb runs of highly aggressive Steelhead and define the meaning of an intimate, wilderness fishing experience. Due to their remote nature, coastal rivers are not easily accessed, and getting there is half the fun! We’ll use Ocean boats, jet boats, helicopters and driving on logging roads – whatever it takes – to access one of the great frontiers in Steelhead fishing. This is what Head Guide Dustin Kovacvich lives for, and his knowledge of the remote coast is second to none, helping us create a truly unique and special coastal river program (the Untouched Adventure) in the Spring months.
Fishing on the remote coastal rivers typically involves hiking up from the river’s estuary, and accessing the many pools just above tidewater. Typically tannic and tea stained by nature, the remote coastal rivers hide their secrets well, but fishing with any of our talented guides will help you get the most out of your day and into the large average sized Steelhead (12 to 15 lbs) that return to them.
In the late Summer and Fall, many remote coastal rivers support runs of giant Coho (silver) Salmon, and their estuaries offer some of the most exciting fishing you’re likely to encounter – an opportunity to catch Coho by sight fishing pods of fish with floating lines and streamer patterns. These fish are absolute chrome rockets that are extremely strong fighters and will test the limits of your tackle. Large sea-run Coastal Cutthroat and Dolly Varden Char are also available.
