The Kitsumkalum River is a lower tributary of the Skeena that is famous for producing some of the largest fish in the system. The Salmon record for the river is 99lb and it is considered to have the genic stain of the largest King Salmon left on earth. From its origins high in the mountains north of Terrace this gem of a river runs to Kalum lake and through a steep rugged canyon before winding its way through the lush coastal rainforest to it’s confluence with the Skeena. The large lake and steep canyon combine with an abundance of habitat to produce the ultimate scenario for yielding large fish.
The Skeena River is known by the local Gitxsan First Nation as ‘River of the Mists’ and is a 570km long fish highway that features stunning vistas as well as the largest run of wild Steelhead in British Columbia and some of the world’s largest King Salmon. This river and its tributaries is a spey anglers’ dream river, the Skeena is a wide, shallow river that is perfectly suited for swinging flies. The Skeena is home to world record Steelhead and some of the largest Chinook (King) Salmon left on the planet.
