If you are looking for a way to truly surround yourself in nature on your northern escape, fishing is one of the best ways to do that. It is a perfect blend of serenity and calm, patience and cunning, and sudden action that can net you a delicious meal. Fishing reminds us of a time when we did not eat unless we could catch something, and how important this skill has been to people for such a long span of human history. At Northern Escape, we love fishing in all its forms. Whether you would rather wade in the Kalum River and fly fish for Chinook salmon, hop on a boat and cruise the north Pacific fishing for halibut, or get air-lifted to an isolated river that nobody else can access, we have you covered.
BC Steelhead Fishing
Most Steelhead trout are between 8 and 20 pounds, but fishermen catch Steelhead more than 30 pounds from the Skeena River every year. Some of the largest Steelhead ever caught have come from the Skeena. This could be your chance to set a world record in a river with some of the strongest runs of Steelhead in the world. All Steelhead caught in BC must be returned for conservation of the species. Learn more.
