Skeena River Lodge

Skeena River Lodge, British Columbia

Skeena River Lodge is one of the most renowned fly fishing only lodges in Terrace, British Columbia offering access to a diverse range of rivers and a huge, world famous, run of Pacific salmon and steelhead.

Type of fishing

British Columbia’s Skeena River is one of the most famous anadromous waterways in the world and all five species of Pacific salmon, and the elusive steelhead, migrate up it on their way to their natal rivers to spawn. You can also fish the Bell Irving River, the Kalum River, the Copper River and the Kitimat River.

The main lodge, located 15 minutes upstream of Terrace city, caters for four to eight anglers depending on the week, and it represents great value for serious anglers. During September and October four anglers stay at the main lodge, focusing on the Copper and Skeena rivers and the Kalum River, also known as Kitsumkalum. Four additional anglers can fish out of the Nass Base Camp on the Bell Irving.

Fishers will have long days fishing for steelhead and salmon with head guide, Jeroen Wohe and his assistants, who have many years of fly fishing experience and can provide you with Spey/single-handed casting instruction as well as sharing their knowledge about fly selection, sink tip usage, line control and presentation methods.

You will use both 13ft rafts and open jet boats to access the water, with all of the catch and release fishing done while wading.
