Company Description

Skeena British Columbia Fly Fishing

We are proud to offer the following excursions with us at Skeena Wilderness Fishing Charters.

We are located in Terrace, British Columbia, Canada and offer the best fishing charter experience bar none!

Steelhead : Formerly known only to anglers living in the lower Skeena valley, spring steelheading here is now gaining an international reputation. For anyone who has cast fly through the clear, crisp air in March, April and May, it's not hard to appreciate why this is so.

Spring steelheading in Skeena is done when the water is low and as clear as air. The steelhead are hard; they shine like newly minted coins; they fight well; and they are readily found with a fly.

In March, when the land is still hard and the snow shelves are stacked along the river bank like thick sheets of glass, a fast sinking line is the order of the day. In April, when the buds are out and rivers are beginning to rise in height and temperature, a slow sinking line is fine. The air is full of fragrance and the land is green by May. This is the month when the last of the Spring steelhead can be persuaded to come up for a surface fly. Spring is also a good time to find sea run cutthroat trout, dolly varden char, and bull trout, all of which are on the prowl for emergent salmon fry, and can be fooled with a minnow pattern fished at the end of a floating line and a long leader.

Chinook : Terrace has the largest chinook salmon in the world. The raw power of these fish is extraordinary. Head Guide Stan Doll has beached fish over eighty pounds and has been beaten by King salmon larger than that. He has also guided many other fishermen to fish of these dimensions over the course of a guiding career that has lasted more than a quarter of a century.

Stan will get you tackled up, get your hook into chinook, and coach you as you do the rest. This fishing experience is electric and athletic -- a once in a lifetime experience. Come and experience it!

Sockeye: there are millions of them during a year of good returns to the Skeena. Only recently opened to sports fishers, and formerly considered to be non-biters, the small, but speedy salmon can be fooled into taking a fly or lure.

Like the pink salmon, the sockeye is fine table fare and a welcome surprise on a day when fishing for the other species is slow. A fast sinking line is best for sockeye since these beautiful, blue-backed creatures prefer a fly fished close to the bottom. Pinks, which range from four to eight pounds normally, are best taken on a trout rod or light spinning gear. In the places we catch them they are still bright and firm.


After a thrilling day's fishing you'll appreciate the opportunity to kick back. After a fine home cooked meal Canadian style, relax with a glass of wine, something else from the bar, or a non-alcoholic beverage.

For fly tiers, Skeena Wilderness provides vices and fly tying supplies for anglers who wish to copy the pattern other successful anglers are using or who want to experiment with fly design in hopes of catching even more fish.

For those anglers who wish to learn more about the tying of Skeena Patterns and how to fish them, veteran Skeena Steelheader, Rob Brown is available for sessions designed to improve your fishing over the course of your stay.

At Skeena Wilderness we like things clean and comfortable: We have showers and baths. You'll sleep well. You'll eat well. You'll enjoy privacy when you need it and company when you want it. If you want to, spend a day enjoying the town of Terrace, or have a desire to see the sights.
