Fishing Info

Best Time for Fishing the Skeena

The real joy of fishing the Skeena region is the variety of rivers available and the extent of the fishing season. There is almost something happening year-round on the Skeena and its tributaries. Here is a quick break down of what’s happening when!

Summer on the Skeena: The majority of the big runs of salmon enter the Skeena starting early in the summer, with May and June being the months when the first big influx of chinook (king) salmon move into the lower Skeena. These are fresh off the ocean fish and range in the 15-40 pound range. As the summer moves along it is August when the first push of summer-run steelhead start showing up in any decent numbers, this is a great time for dry fly steelhead fishing and usually very consistent for fishing.

Fall on the Skeena: September through early November are the months when the primarily focus is on steelhead fishing.  This time of year is a very popular one with the majority of fish in the Skeena, Kalum and Copper rivers. There is also some very good salmon fishing as well, especially for coho (silver) salmon in the lower, less known, tributaries of the Skeena.

Spring: Starting in mid April early season steelhead begin to show themselves. We offer trips to the Skeena throughout the Spring but usually try to focus on the last week of April and into the first week of May for prime time fishing. This is also when the first big push of chinook (king) salmon move into the Skeena system and a great time to fish uncrowded water!
