Instructional Steelhead Trips
Steelhead fishing in BC is one of the more challenging river sport fishing opportunities we have to offer. Apart from salmon fishing and sturgeon fishing, British Columbia is also highly regarded as one of the top Steelhead river fishing destinations in North America and some of the world’s most renowned Steelhead fishing rivers flow through our province. Anglers from all over the globe travel here in the hopes of catching a trophy steelhead.
For someone who is new to Steelhead river fishing, finding and hooking these fish can sometimes seem very frustrating. However, knowing some basic facts and information will greatly increase your success rates on the river. On this “hands-on” instructional trip, you’ll spend 8hrs on the river, fishing as you learn. A few of the important topics covered include: reading and covering water, presentation, fish behavior, angler versatility, river safety, bait & tackle, etc. Whether you prefer to fly fish or use terminal tackle, our professional guides are there to help, teach, and explain. Our goal is to provide you with the correct information from the very beginning, so that you can enjoy hooking more fish and become a better and more confident steelheader.
In this part of British Columbia, we offer Steelhead river fishing trips on several different rivers for both wild and hatchery fish, with each river providing the angler with it’s own unique character, setting, and spectacular scenery. Our winter-run Steelhead are present in our rivers from Dec.-April, with the best fishing available from Feb-April. The winter runs typically produce substantially more fish than our summer Steelhead runs.
There is something to be said about these fish when anglers travel thousands of miles in hope of catching a few of these hard-fighting and acrobatic beauties. They aren’t nearly as abundant as our salmon and at times they can seem to be elusive and “moody”, testing the angler’s abilities, knowledge, and experience to its fullest. It seems that this sort of challenge grows on certain anglers, and the Steelhead has a large world-wide following of die-hard “steelheaders”, who travel all over in hopes of landing that trophy Steelhead of a lifetime.
