Nass River Remote Steelhead Adventure Camps.www.skeenariversteelhead.com
Spring Steelhead Camp: March 24 – May 10
Fall Steelhead Camp: September 1 to November 30
Our season starts with our Remote Spring Steelhead camp, or from our B&B with Beautiful bright Steelhead showing up as early as the Third week in March. Fresh from the sea this we call our spring run. Summer run Steelhead start arriving into the Skeena river in August and numbers only become stronger into October, as they move into there home tributaries where they will pair up, hold over and get ready to spawn. They are strong, silver, and quick to take the fly during the early part of September, then they color up. This is a great time for dry flies. It is not uncommon for males to aggressively take the fly and fight as exquisitely as the female, by jumping and showing their colors. Until finally the snow flies and we pack up camp and leave them to reproduce. In the most remote Steelhead destination yet to be explored!
How would you like to be the one to say I was the first one to set foot on this Magnificent Steelhead River??
I have spent the last 20 years exploring this area and found the fishing to be out of this world, not to mention the pure beauty of the untouched wilderness. As you fly in and gaze out the helicopter window to the landscape below you will truly feel you are leaving all your worries behind. I guarantee you will leave the camp with a whole new out look on the world we call home!
There are Wolves, Moose, Grizzly bears, Eagles, Otters, and many other animals and birds out and about. These animals in this untouched pristine environment are waiting for winter, they are scurrying around and collecting food. The snow caped Mountains with the yellow and red leaves on the occasional sunny day make for breath taking photos, while holding your very own trophy Steelhead for a quick photo and released to swim free again, to continue its life cycle.
You will be within a stones throw of the river thus getting as much fishing in as you like. I will also be flying in a 14 foot jet sled to get around on the water as well as a raft. All guiding services, as well as access to a few flies custom tied by your “Westcoast Adventure Guide” will be provided. Transportation in and out of camp will be provided by White River Helicopters Or our Can Am commander 1000 on tracks.
Sleeping arrangements will consist of aluminum framed cots. Heat will be supplied by a pot bellied wood stove in each tent. I will have a sat phone in camp in case of emergencies or adverse weather conditions.There will be Coho available as well, however our main focus on the Nass & Tributaries will be Steelhead. There are also native rainbows & bull trout in the system.
This is truly an adventure you will never forget!
Fishing is our addiction! Guiding is our Passion! Adventure is in our blood!
