Simply put, Northwestern British Columbia’s Skeena River is the Steelhead and Salmon superhighway. In Summer and Fall, the lower main channel Skeena hosts vast numbers of migrating Steelhead, Chinook, Coho, Sockeye, and Pinks headed for numerous upriver tributaries. Renowned rivers such as the Copper, Kalum, Babine, Kispiox, Sustut, Bulkley and Morice enter the Skeena above, or around the town of Terrace, and all fish bound for these rivers must pass directly in front of our fly before reaching their spawning grounds. Only a day or two out of the ocean, at the peak of their size, strength and beauty, these are among the biggest and most aggressive Steelhead and Salmon on Earth. To hook one of these fish on the fly in the broad Skeena River, is to touch the heart of the wilderness – an experience not to be forgotten!
By partnering up with Jon and Jaclyn Gagnon and having our guests stay at the spectacularly built cabins and property on their Hidden Acres Farm & Treehouse Resort, our guests now have the opportunity to chase Steelhead and Salmon on each of the Skeena’s main sections near Terrace, including the Lower Skeena (Skeena 2), Middle Skeena (Skeena 3) and Upper Skeena (Skeena 4). Simply put – it’s a Skeena-focused program for the die-hard angler who wants to explore the Skeena’s best waters, at the best time, for migrating Steelhead and Salmon. Skeena to the max!
There is a narrow window when we operate the Skeena Max program, during the month of August and early September, so space is very limited – make sure to get signed up while there’s still space available!
