Fishing Seasons

Time to Fish

Anglers in search of a trophy Skeena fish enjoy many opportunities throughout the year and each season is unique in both the setting and fishing conditions. Winter Steelhead fishing starts in early March and continues throughout April. As spring turns into summer the Chinook salmon arrive, followed by the other species of salmon including Coho which continue right through autumn. Summer Steelhead fishing begins in July and continues right through October.

Winter Steelhead are bright chrome bars that will try and take all of your line. Our winter Steelhead season begins with the melting of bank ice in early March and continues until freshet in late April. Angling in the winter and spring months is an invigorating experience. The weather can be snow, sun, wind and rain, all in the same day. Temperature fluctuates in the spring but will typically range from -2c up to 15c. Trout and Char fishing can be very productive at this time as these fish are busy feeding on emerging salmon fry. At some point in April, the first Chinook salmon will return.

Early Summer fishing on the Skeena is all about the excitement of potentially connecting with the fish of a lifetime, a giant chinook salmon of 50 # or more fresh in from the ocean. This is also the time when the first steelhead and coho salmon of the year will be caught. July through to August sees the river dropping and a full variety of salmon entering the river including  steelhead still chrome bright from the ocean and full of energy and fight.Long summer days with amazing light and some of the best sunsets of the year make for an amazing backdrop to this memorable fishery.

Autumn fishing on the Skeena and tribs is the classic Steelhead experience. Crisp mornings and bright fall colours make for some of the most memorable days of the year. In addition to great Steelheading, this is also the best time of year to catch coho salmon. Autumn on the Skeena is breathtaking. With a backdrop of changing leaves, snow-capped mountain peaks and the feeling of cool air on your skin, this time of year is a favorite of many of our anglers. The river becomes quiet and peaceful as fall comes to a close and all that remains of anglers are those, like you, in pursuit of that elusive steelhead of a lifetime.
