Nestled in the Skeena Mountains of British Columbia, sits one of the true gems of this province, the Nass River. Spanning some 400 kilometres, this truly remote, wilderness fishery offers everything the adventure angler is looking for.
The Nass River is home to a very strong run of wild Steelhead, that begin moving from the ocean into the river at the end of August and the run continues to intensify until November. The peak steelhead fishing period on the Nass is from mid September to mid October.
The Nass valley is situated roughly 250 kms northeast of Terrace, BC, a stunning first growth forest, this area has a healthy population of grizzly bears and moose. While fishing the Nass River guests stay at a remote river camp at the confluence of the Damdochax and Nass rivers. This strategic location gives fishing access to a variety of prime water on the Nass through the week.
It’s every steelhead anglers dream, to fly into a remote untouched stretch of water and cast the first fly through in hopes of that one big pull. The remote Nass River offers the ideal location for helicopter access and adding days of heli-fishing to your package is available on this trip. Fly through jagged peaks and huge glaciers, over dense old growth rainforest and river valleys to find the perfect steelheading spots. Rafts positioned on a number of rivers allow for float trips and the helicopters will stay with you for the entire day of heli-fishing.
