In 2024, we are thrilled to offer fly fishermen a truly exceptional opportunity to target British Columbia’s Skeena system during the prime weeks of the Coho salmon run. While this region is traditionally renowned for its steelhead, the presence of Coho, also known as Silver salmon, during this period adds an exciting dimension to the fishing experience. The Coho salmon in the Skeena system stand out for their impressive size, often exceeding 20 pounds. These tenacious fighters provide an excellent alternative for anglers who relish the challenge of pursuing Atlantic salmon. With the expert guidance of Nicholas Dean Outfitters on the Skeena River system, this fishing expedition becomes even more remarkable. What truly sets it apart is the harmonious blend of the awe-inspiring natural scenery and the abundance of Coho salmon that grace these waters during this specific time of year.
The Autumn months mark the peak of the coho salmon migration, and Yellow Cedar Lodge is strategically situated along the Skeena River just south of Terrace, a world-famous salmon stronghold. As the coho salmon make their way upstream, anglers can expect thrilling encounters with these powerful and acrobatic fish.
