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 Bulkley Basecamp 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.
  • Fish multiple famed steelhead rivers including the Bulkley, Morice & Skeena.
  • Spend everyday of the trip fishing new and remote rivers for wild steelhead.
  • Only trip of its kind to give you the variety of fishing with the additional option of fishing the Babine River!

In the world of steelheading, you normally assume all the risk for your water conditions. Our unique Bulkley Basecamp program offers you all the advantages and minimizes some of the risks as much as possible. 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. Upon booking you can include days to the Babine River and Upper Skeena River, creating your own ideal steelhead trip.

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.

  • Enjoy the comforts of a well appointed tent camp, located in the Bulkley River canyon.
  • We take care of all ground transportation for worry free travel to Northern BC.

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!

“Getting Chromer to put together your trip is a no-brainer. Yos Gladstone seems to know everyone in the BC sport fishing industry, and has a sixth sense for putting you where need to be at the right time to put those lunkers on the line. I’ve done two Chromer-booked trips to the Bulkley River, spey fishing for steelhead, and they have been nothing short of amazing. I was a total beginner, and Yos made sure we were with guides that really put time into teaching and helping out. We smashed them!”
