FACILITES & AMENITIES

BULKLEY BASECAMP

The camp facilities of the Bulkley Basecamp program are built in perfectly with the surroundings and offer the outmost comfort in a wilderness setting. It is located on an unguided classified river which guests can fish on there own, a special bonus that few have access to.

The camp takes only six guests a week, availability is obviously extremely limited and guests can count on personalized service and attention.  Tents are shared, two guests per tent but  private tents can be arranged if asked for in advance. The tents are floored, heated and offer a unique experience, unlike any lodge package, this is roughing it in the most comfortable of ways.
There is a dinning room, large deck area and kitchen to socialize in. Cabins and grounds are well lit and a campfire roars each evening. The food is home style cooking prepared by a professional chef.  You won’t go hungry on this trip, meals are plentiful and warm breakfasts, river lunches and dinners are served daily.
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!

“An utterly fantastic week of fishing on the Bulkley River. Thank you for setting it all up so perfectly.”

The FISHING

BULKLEY BASECAMP

Making plans to get into northern BC for a steelhead trip isn’t always easy. There’s lots of options and it can be daunting figuring out when and where. That’s the really nice thing about this trip in our opinion, it gives you flexibility. Why is flexibility in terms of where you’re fishing important? Well, mainly it protects against poor water conditions, on this trip when you have 3+ rivers to fish in one week, you can be moved around to fish the best water during that time. There isn’t a trip out there like it, putting you into world class rivers and giving you the options of fishing different water each day.
In the world of steelheading, you normally assume all the risk for your water conditions. For example if you reserve a day on the upper copper for $800 per person and the river blows out, you are out of luck and still on the hook. If you fly into the Silver Hilton and the river is blown out you are stuck in the lodge playing cards until it clears. Our unique Bulkley Basecamp program offers you all the advantages without the risk. Our standard fishing program from camp is fishing two days on the Skeena, two days on the Bulkley and two days on the Morice for a total of six days guided fishing. This allows for flexibility to target our beats under the most ideal water conditions. The upper Bulkley and Morice rivers are fishable 90% of the time throughout a fishing season. You will always have somewhere to go fish, no matter how dire the circumstances. Upon booking you can include days to the Babine River and Upper Skeena River, creating your own ideal steelhead trip.
