We’ve just received a spring steelhead update from Nicholas Dean Outfitters on the mighty Skeena River in Canada’s British Columbia. The season is well underway and is proving to be even more productive than the last couple of years. The steelhead are ‘strong, mean and healthy and some great fish have been landed’.

Canada spring steelhead

The spring fishing here can be incredibly exciting, and with years of exploration behind them, the team at Nicholas Dean know all the best spots. Spring fishing encompasses many wild and scenic rivers ranging from the small and unnamed to medium sized rivers like the Kalum to the broad, shallow riffles and tailouts of the majestic Skeena – all for large, wild steelhead. Fish of up to and over 20lb are regular targets.

The spring steelhead season here is short and runs from mid-March to mid-May and tends to fill with repeat visitors. We have some rare last minute availability in the weeks of April 23 to 30 and April 30 to May 7 for anglers who would like to grab a chance to fish this wonderful system.

Guests stay at Yellow Cedar Lodge which is perfectly located to access all the rivers in this area.

Cost for six days guided fishing (seven night stay) is from CAD$5,795. Based on three guests per guide.
