Here is a small report from Steffen´s scouting trip to The Mighty Skeena River. The Skeena River is the second longest river entirely within British Columbia, Canada. Most salmon and steelhead World Records are made or broken in the Skeena River and its tributaries.
The fishing is fantastic, the first 2 days Steffen and Columbus Leth have landed 13 BIG Steelhead. 3 Steelhead over 20 Lbs and 10 Steelhead between 14-19 Lbs. Fantastic scenery, unspoiled nature, snow capped mountains, great food and hospitality.
Waterlevel is quite low which make it easier to cover all the magnificent pools full of Spring Steelhead. Backing is tested to the limit everyday and we are in Steelhead heaven, no question about it. We are – as usual – shooting a little Steelhead movie from Skeena on the side which we will share with you later this summer.
This might be a new adventure for Salmon Junkies…More to come…
All the best
