Why Choose Us ?

The Skeena river and her tributaries is the ultimate fly fishing playground. Skeena wilderness fishing charters has been in the guiding business for over 40 years. We are the local professionals. My two sons work with me in our business and have been raised and trained by me on all of these local rivers. They are excellent double handed spey and single handed fly casters. They read the water very well as fishermen and as skillful safe boatmen. We run top quality Alumaweld and Wooldridge jet boats. Alumaweld drift boats and Avon rafts. We use Sage, Loomis and Thomas & Thomas rods, Ross reels and professionally tied flies. Everything is first class. We offer day trips, ALL INCLUSIVE trips and remote helicopter trips. Something for everyone.
