Spring Steelhead Camp: March 24 – May 10
Fall Steelhead Camp: September 1 to November 30
Fishing season starts with a Remote Spring Steelhead camp, or from our Fishing Lodge with Beautiful bright Steelhead showing up as early as the Third week in March. Fresh from the sea we call our spring run. Summer run Steelhead start arriving in the Skeena / Nass river in Late July, August and numbers only become stronger into October. They are strong, silver, and quick to take the fly during August, September, this is a great time for dry flies. It is not uncommon for steelhead to aggressively take the fly and fight by jumping and showing their true power. 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! Nass,Cranberry,Kiteen,Bell Irving,Meziadian we guide them all.
I have spent the last 25 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 these creatures 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.
Sleeping arrangements will consist of heavy duty 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!
