Fly anglers come from all over the world
to fish these legendary waters. Catching a Steelhead on the fly is
considered by many to be the ultimate fishing experience. With the large
numbers of fish migrating up the Skeena, anglers have the opportunity to
catch several species of salmon as well as Steelhead in a day. With
record sized fish moving up the rivers any angler has the chance of
catching a fish of a lifetime. Kalum River Lodge’s guides are very
experienced fly fishermen with an extensive knowledge of the fly fishing
waters. The guides will work with you as much or as little as you
fishing season begins in April and goes through to early November. The
spring season brings fresh runs of Steelhead, trout and early Chinook
salmon into the rivers. This is a great time for fly fishermen to
experience fishing on a variety of rivers. Fly fishing throughout the
summer season is an action packed time. The chance of catching Steelhead
and all five species of salmon during your trip is an amazing experience
and brings many of our anglers back year after year. By early September
the tributaries are filling up with Coho (Silver salmon) and Steelhead
providing excellent fishing as well as incredible wilderness scenery.
For most of the year a wet fly swing presentation is a very effective method. We use 8 to 10 weight single or double handed rods, large arbor reels and lines with interchangeable sink tip systems. We recommend using at least 150 yards of 30 pound backing. Many fly patterns work well including Intruders, Leech patterns and nymphs.
