LOCATION & TRAVEL

BULKLEY RIVER BRITISH COLUMBIA

All packages to the Babine originate in Smithers, British Columbia. Guests must arrive in Smithers from Vancouver on the Friday evening before their week starts. Air Canada services Smithers with daily flights, but it is good to book early as space is limited. The flight is about 1.5 hours, leaving from Vancouver International Airport, a simple connection if you are arriving from an international location.
Guests will fly by helicopter from Smithers to the Babine on Saturday and will fish the home water that day. After your stay, we will return you to Smithers late Friday afternoon. You should plan on staying overnight in Smithers to catch the Saturday morning flight to Vancouver.
The lodge is located on the upper Babine River, in between the Babine Falls downstream and Babine Lake upstream. There is home water, so on arrival day you can fish the water in front of the lodge and upstream. The location of the lodge allows for all day access to fresh water and fresh steelhead.

LOCAL BABINE INSIGHT

FROM OUR CREW

It took some time to get the Babine Steelhead Lodge on board with our program, they were packed during every week of their season with no availability. Following a visit to the lodge by Chromer owner Yos Gladstone, that relationship changed and Chromer Sport Fishing was granted some dates for our clients. The Babine is an amazing fishery but does come with it’s cons as well. River levels do vary, heavy rains in the Fall months can make for high water conditions, part of the reason we like to aim our trips later in the season, when temperatures are cooler and freezing levels are lower, creating more stable river conditions. We have a great relationship with the lodge on the Babine, with pals guiding there, you know you’ll be well taken care of when you book with us.

“I would highly recommend using Yos at Chromer to book your next BC steelhead trip.”

BABINE FISHING INFO

FISHING FOR BC’S BIGGEST STEELHEAD

The Babine flows into the Skeena River and is arguably one of the most famous wild steelhead rivers in the world. Each year, from early September through early to mid October, some of the largest steelhead found on the entire Skeena system make their return to the Babine. Fishing the Babine is not about numbers, it is about quality. On average you can expect 3-4 chances at steelhead a day but the quality of specimen is hard to match. Steelhead in the 35 inch plus range are common on the Babine, so chances at a true fish of a lifetime is definitely a reality!
Babine steelhead smash dry flies through most of the season, a thrill that few other rivers can offer in such consistency. Wading conditions on the Babine are managed easily by most anglers. Packages to the Babine River are considered ‘semi-guided’, meaning guides spend time with 3-4 guests during the day. This is how it is done at all three lodges on the Babine. If you’re sceptical don’t worry. Personalized service certainly isn’t lost, there just might not be someone there to get your fly out of the rocks or tie on a new leader for you. The size of the runs have lots to do with why these packages are semi-guided and it actually gives you more untouched water that has seen few to no anglers in a day. You won’t be stuck fishing behind someone, you always have your own beat and guides keep busy making sure everyone is well taken care of.
