|Fishing this past week has been productive on the mainstem Skeena. While overall numbers of Salmon have started to drop off, there's a few more of these chrome bullets around...|
Fishing on the mainstem Skeena this past week has been rewarding for our clients, with many bright, chrome fish to 20 lbs landed. Clients Yves and Claude travelled all the way from New Caledonia in the south Pacific to fish with us for the first time, and they left very happy indeed, having fulfilled their dream of catching their first Steelhead! Their best day was eight Steelhead hooked, though as with most days, one to three was the average and in-line with expectations. Yves even lost a monster 25 lb Steelhead mid week that straightened out his hook! The reality is that you need more than a little luck to land fish of this size on the mainstem Skeena, as these fish are incredibly strong and know how to use the Skeena's heavy currents to their advantage. Look for more photos on our third week at the Skeena Camp in our next post...
