    Package Information

    British Columbia’s Skeena River is a super-fish superhighway — a thoroughfare for the largest Steelhead and Salmon in the world.
    During the summer and fall months, the lower main channel Skeena hosts vast numbers of migrating Steelhead, Chinook, Coho, Sockeye, Chum and Pink Salmon who are headed upriver to Skeena tributaries.
    Only a day or two out of the ocean, at the peak of their size, strength and beauty, these are among the biggest and most aggressive Salmon and Steelhead on Earth!
    To hook one of these fish on the fly in the broad Lower Skeena is to touch the heart of the wilderness — an experience not to be forgotten!

    The scenery at our Skeena Camp is nothing short of spectacular… soaring, snow-capped mountains, a winding river and numerous waterfalls surround our guests as they cast for the Skeena’s legendary wild Steelhead and Salmon.
    Accommodations
    Our Skeena Wilderness Camp consists of single and two-person sleeping tents with cots and pads, communal dining and gear tents, privy and propane-heated water with a shower tent.

    Aside from personal items and fishing gear, guests need only bring a sleeping bag, pillow, and towel.

    Staff consists of 2 fishing guides and 1 attendant.

    Guided fishing is from 8am–5pm; hot breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served in the dining tent — but you can eat at the table or take your meal with you to your favorite fishing spot! The gear tent is also equipped with a propane heater to dry off wet clothing or chase the chill.

    Before 7:00 AM If guests are early risers they can fish before breakfast. This will be unguided fishing.
