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 and other salmon 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!
With the recent acquisition of Yellow Cedar Lodge in April 2020, we are pleased to offer Skeena Max guests first class accommodations and meals with all the comforts of this modern, river front lodge, while you pursue the legendary fish of the Skeena on several different beats, including the Lower Skeena (Skeena 1 & 2) and Middle Skeena (Skeena 3). 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!
