Lower Skeena Valley | Fall Steelhead

with host Jeff Bright

Looking for the quintessential British Columbia angling experience? If so, this is your trip. We’ll fish a number of wild rivers, including the remote and intimate upper Copper, a true steelhead Shangri La. • • • We’ll swing wet flies and, with favorable conditions, fish dries. Fall-run Skeena steelhead are free-rising and will readily pounce on a waking fly — undoubtedly one of the greatest thrills in flyfishing. • • • This adventure also features the exciting opportunity to fish select lower Skeena streams, including the scenic Kasiks, Exchamsiks and Exstew for trophy coho. Depending on flows, these great gamefish can often be pursued with sight-fishing tactics.
