The Skeena River system. Steelhead Mecca. The Bulkley, Kispiox, Babine, Morice, Zymoetz, Kitsumkalum…. Skeena tributaries all. The steelheading opportunities are so overwhelming, it’s almost impossible to step away from the steelhead water and explore.
A bit of advice fella, take a fresh pull off your flask, and take it all in. Point the jet sled down around Terrace way. Pull out the 6-weight two-hander. And enjoy the magnificence of the steelhead’s closest cousin, Oncorhynchus clarki clarki. To my way of thinking, the steelhead gods will be smiling on you.
