What, When, & Where we fish ...

Steelhead

One of the most prized sport fish, the mighty Steelhead, is known for its spatular acrobatics and hard fighting. Ranging from 8-35lbs, with 15-20lbs being the average in many rivers. These fish are often found in faster runs but also in deep slower pockets of river. At times, these fish can be very aggressive and take to the fly very well. All methods of fishing can be effective if fished correctly for the water conditions.

Coho can exceed 25lbs in size and average between 10-15lbs. Our local rivers are known for very large coho, sometimes referred to as Northern Coho. They are aggressive, acrobatic, and a culinary treasure! Coho are targeted best on lighter gear and fly rods. Twitching jigs is extremely exciting, productive, and fun way to catch these fish. Our guides will teach you this new and evolving technique should you be interested.

Pinks range between 7-15lbs in size and provide an excellent introductory fishery to children and beginners due to their large run sizes, and aggressive nature to strike any thing "pink." The season length is quite long for Pinks making them a great mix to catch with other species.

Huge rainbow trout on leech pattern

Rainbow Trout offer a thrill, similar to Steelhead fishing, and why wouldn't they right? They are the same genetic species. What separates them? Rainbow Trout spend their life in freshwater where as steelhead migrate to the ocean and eventually return to the rivers to spawn. Wild Rainbow fishing is excellent all year in the Skeena and Omineca regions. Our guides will take you to secret remote waters offering a once in a life time experience!

Monster Lake Trout Northern BC

Lake trout, also commonly known as Char, are an impressive apex predator that can reach over over 40lbs! I think of them as the T-Rex of freshwater, in BC. The secret remote lakes we guide north of Prince George, BC, offer sizes in the 12-20lb range. We find great success using very light gear with variety of methods including fly fishing, casting, jigging, still drifting, and trolling. This allows for an exciting and dynamic day on the waters!

bull trout catch and release

Bull Trout and Dolly Varden are widespread throughout the lakes and streams of BC's Omineca and Skeena region commonly averaging 5-10 lbs, with some fish exceeding 15lbs in size. As they are an aggressive predator to other fish, targeting these species with minnow and egg patters on the fly, or float fishing, can be a very fun way to enjoy this beautiful species (especially during the spring fry migration).
