Along with the main Bulkley Basecamp, there are several smaller satellite camps, two are located on remote stretches in the Bulkley River canyon. These were the first camps used on previously offered four and six day packages. The two camps are still in operation and are used in conjunction with the basecamp. They offered the ultimate access to fresh water on the Bulkley River and are well equipped with heated wall tents, drying room and cooking facilities.  These have long been a favourite destination of our guests as they offer front door access to some of the best runs on the Bulkley River canyon!

LOCAL INSIGHT

FROM OUR CREW

This is hands down one of our favourite trips and easily the trip we organize the most for our clients. The Skeena River and its many tributaries have so much to offer, with a long season starting in mid March and carrying through until mid November.  This is a mecca for steelhead and salmon fishing like no where else in the world. Some of our in house staff guides here full-time, most notably Justin Berry, who organizes many of our steelhead trips, has found a home running these trips for us on the Skeena River. Long time friend of the Chromer business, Brian Niska, is also the lodge manager so you can expect a warm welcome on your arrival. If you’re looking for an all round superb trip with great fishing and matching accommodations this one is without question the way to go.

Guide Justin Berry works at the Skeena and facilitates many of our steelhead bookings in BC.

“Hey Yos, just wanted to let you know we had a great two days of fishing. We were all in agreement that it was the best fishing experience of our lives.”

FISHING THE SKEENA

SALMON AND STEELHEAD ON THE FLY

The Skeena River is the main drainage for northern British Columbia and one of the last strongholds for wild fish anywhere in the world. The Skeean and its tributaries are home to tens of a thousands or return steelhead and millions of returning salmon. On this trip you will have the opportunity to fish a variety of rivers, depending on dates and conditions, which certainly is a popular feature of this package. If you want to focus your trip on summer-run steelhead plan on a trip starting anytime in mid August through to early November. This is prime time for Skeena steelhead fishing.
The section of the Skeena around Terrace sees the first steelhead of the season starting in early August, as they migrate through these waters on their way up the Skeena and into their home rivers. All the fish destined for the Bulkley, Babine, Kispiox and Sustut swim right by the lodge each year. This makes for an incredible fishery, with solid returning numbers and some monster steelhead in the mix. Remember all our trips on the Skeena are flexible, there are no set start and finish dates in the week like with most steelhead lodge packages, so making plans is easy to maximize your fishing. Home to millions of returning salmon the Skeena River has long been a famed destination for anglers from around the world looking to experience British Columbia salmon fishing at its best.
The first chinook (king) salmon begin arriving in mid May with prime fishing season for these beasts ranging from mid June to late July. Some of the largest chinook salmon in BC are caught on the Skeena and Kalum rivers, some in the 50+ pound range! Average chinook salmon size is usually 15-25 pounds, pulling hard and burning up drags. Other species of salmon including pink, sockeye, chum and coho salmon, all of which make their way into the Skeena throughout the Summer and Fall months.
Starting in mid April through to mid May there is a run of ocean fresh steelhead that move into the lower sections of the Skeena and Kalum rivers. For anglers looking at a new experience and chrome bright fish this time of year can be very interesting as fishing pressure is at a minimum and the fish that are being caught are bright and bitey, if you show them a fly they’re more than willing to take a go at it. If you’re looking for a fresh adventure then Spring steelhead fishing on the Skeena and its lower tributaries is a great option.

No lack of variety on our Skeena fishing packages.  A long fishing season and plenty of river miles to fish.!
