The Nass River camp is run by Steve McPhail. Steve was at one time a guide in Whistler, BC and guided with Yos many moons ago. Since then Yos and Steve have stayed in contact through Chromer representing Steve and his Nass operation. The Nass is definitely a must for any serious steelheader. This is a river system that see’s such limited pressure, the closest road is 150 kilometres away! The surrounding forests are first growth timber and have no signs of logging, civilization, or man for that matter. This is a truly majestic place with mile upon mile of perfect fly water accessed with 11.6 Aires rafts and an A-Star BA Helicopter. The camp is strategically place on the banks of the Upper Nass River with 5 very productive pools a stone’s throw from camp in any direction.
  • Fish endless miles of remote untouched steelhead water, accessed only by helicopter.
  • Guides run rafts and jetboats and there is home water runs right at the camp.
  • Fully guided program with only 4 guests per week, having it pretty much to yourself!
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.
The camp on the upper nass consists of 16’ by 22’ Cookhouse with wood stove, hot shower, outhouse and three 12’ by 14’ wall tents with a four foot covered porch.  The tents sit on cedar wood decks and are equipped with wood burning stoves for added comfort.   All tents are double occupancy.  The bedding is Mummy style sleeping bags that are 6’4” in length and are rated to minus 30 Celsius.  The cedar wood beds are twin style with 8” pillow top mattress.  Each tent is equipped with shelves for storage and coat hangers to hang waders, jackets, etc.

All meals are served in the cookhouse. Guests can expect three courses for each dinner.  Guests are offered a shower each day prior to dinner.  The shower is powered by propane and 12 volt deep cycle battery.  Once guests have been shown how to use the shower they may enjoy it whenever they like.

“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!”
