Spring steelhead arrive in March and when they enter the river they are hot to catch on the fly. We drift from pool to pool in 1-2 person rafts in search of the migrating grey ghost.
We recommend a 7 or 8wt single handed or switch rod with a 400-500grain line. Sink tips we recommend 10ft of T14 or Rio multi tip systems for different depths and a proper reel with lots of backing (and a good drag system).
The Kitimat Steelhead like the shallow fast water and you can see them chasing your fly which makes for exciting fishing.
From beginner to seasoned fly anglers we make Kitimat our home river and very convenient for the Kitimat Lodge guests. Having our lodge located near the river is what draws Steelhead anglers to Kitimat.
Our local guides are born and raised on the river and can locate the elusive Steelhead while your take one of our many Steelhead tours.
Take the challenge and book for the month of April. www.kitimatlodge.com

HOW TO CATCH RECORD SIZED STEELHEAD
During the spring season the Skeena River is quite low. The opportunity to hook numerous Steelhead is a great option as it’s world famous and home to the record size Steelhead you see in many photographs.
Skeena tours are by Jetboat where we fish long runs which hold many Steelhead enroute to their tributaries of birth.
The mountains are painted with snow and the scenery and crisp mornings are a must.
Anglers can make their longest cast with a scandanevian line with a light tip.
Again these Steelhead are fresh and hot and expect your reel to scream once you hookup.
March to May us your best chance and expect the start of the Chinook Salmon that come in May, these brutes top 20-40 pounds of pure silver so your gear has to be in top notch shape.
