Why you should book with Skeena Wilderness Fishing charters:
The Skeena river and her tributaries is the ultimate fly fishing playground. Skeena wilderness fishing charters has been in the guiding business for over 45 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.
We are licensed to guide on ALL the classified and unclassified rivers in the Terrace, Kitimat and Prince Rupert area. No other guiding operation is licensed to guide ALL the rivers that are. Our license includes the CLASS 1 ZYMOETZ (Copper) CLASS 1 GITNADIOX. Our CLASS 2 rivers include ZYMOETZ 2 (Copper) KALUM , KWINAMASS, SKEENA 2 & SKEENA 4 plus all the unclassified waters. We are also licensed for the restricted ISHKEENICKH and KINCOLITH in the NASS area. All these rivers are the home of all the world record steelhead and salmon. If one river is blown out we are licensed to guide you where the best fishing is. We all have experienced the disappointment of arriving for your week of fishing and finding that the water is too high or too low or that you should have been there last week.
The last thing that you need is to travel all the way to CANADA to find that the same thing can happen. The SKEENA watershed has a number of different angling areas with different weather patterns and the tributaries that flow through these areas have different characteristics and different water level requirements for successful fishing. There is always somewhere to go.
The right guide will have licenses to fish all these rivers allowing you the best chance of a memorable rather than miserable trip. It need not happen to you if you book with the right guide. We are that guide that is licensed for ALL the rivers.
SKEENA wilderness’s fishing lodge is situated right near the SKEENA river, minutes from the ZYMOETZ (Copper) and KALUM rivers. We are right in the heart of the best fishing.
