For the passionate steelhead angler, all roads eventually lead to the west coast of BC where the Steelhead angling of your dreams waits for you.
For those of you lucky enough to have already fished here, your hope is that a return trip is in the cards sooner than later.
The truth is the watershed is so vast and unspoiled that the fishing experience here is virtually unchanged since I first visited 25 years ago. There are a few more angler in the know, and some of the pontoons have turned into jet boats, but the things that drew me north in the first place remain the same.
It is still a place where after a short drive the only sound you hear while fishing is nature, where moose emerge soundlessly from the forest, where your mornings start with the smell of coffee and bacon, where the anecdotes of the guides are musical as they dispense advice and lore collected from years spent on the water.
As someone who loves both photography and video, I am still entranced by the visual beauty of steelhead angling here. Against the backdrop of mountains, forests, rapids, and emerald green waters. I just love staring out over these pristine runs. I am still as thrilled today as ever to hear the sound of a big fish ripping line from a click n pawl reel. I get immense satisfaction watching my anglers covering my chosen runs patiently for hours, as together we hunt for a bite.
On those precious days when expectations are exceeded, it is a joy to see that faraway look on an angler’s face almost in disbelief of what we had done.
As the world shrinks and life gets more complicated, it’s hard to find a way to leave it all behind, to reconnect with yourself and find that inner peace that a day on the river brings you.
The magic of steelhead fishing in BC is not just about the abundance of big fish, but where the pursuit of these fish takes you. It’s the feeling of shedding the world as you drive farther down remote roads, jet into wilderness sections, or watch as the last roads disappear beneath the heli to a remote section of water. The life you left behind becomes a dim memory as the daily pursuit of fish becomes the only thing you think of or care about.
I’ve experienced many places that most people can only dream about, but my home ins the Bulkley Valley is still at the forefront of all my thoughts wherever I am. Incredible fish, incredible beauty, incredible people. All the components of the perfect fishing experience are waiting for you here.
Come join us on an adventure, It’s time to step up to the majors and give it your best shot.
