Why We Like It
The legendary Skeena River is one of the world’s greatest salmon and steelhead highways. Fish traverse the system for most of the year. Great shots at steelhead ranging to 20 pounds or more; chances to battle chinook salmon averaging about 25 pounds, with some true giants ranging past the 50-pound mark. Lodge located on the banks of the Skeena, offering walk-to dawn patrol and post-dinner fishing options. Guests may book for single nights or full weeks. Private boat launch. First-time fly-fishers and families welcome.
If you are into spey rods and swung flies, Skeena Spey Riverside Wilderness & Lodge and the Skeena River are the places to be. This legendary waterway feeds other vaunted steelhead and salmon rivers, including the Bulkley, Babine, Kalum, Kispiox and Morice . . . and all of the fish heading to those systems swim right by Skeena Spey’s front door. Fishing here gives you the best chance to catch a personal best steelhead or king salmon. Each year, 20-pound and larger steelhead are hooked; chinook salmon to 40 or 50 pounds are a distinct possibility. Larger chinook are fought and lost.
