Type of fishing

Kalum River Lodges, located near Terrace in British Columbia, are nestled in the heart of some of the finest waters in the world. The Skeena River and its various tributaries such as the Kalum River, Kitimat River, the Nass system and numerous smaller coastal rivers are together home to the largest runs of steelhead in the world. In addition, all five species of Pacific salmon run the various river systems at different times during the season, adding wonderful variety to a day on the water.

Steelhead runs can be split into a spring run, entering the river during April and May, and a larger summer run occurring between late July and the beginning of November.

As well as the first steelhead of the year, the spring season brings fresh runs of early chinook salmon into the rivers. This is a great time for fly fishers to experience fishing on a variety of rivers with different methods. The summer season can be an action-packed experience, where the chance of catching steelhead and all five species of salmon during your trip is always a possibility. By early September, tributary rivers are filling up with coho salmon and the main run of prime autumn steelhead.

With over twenty riversĀ onĀ the doorstep, guests at Kalum River Lodges are a stone’s throw away from the most incredible fly fishing that British Columbia has to offer.
