Dear Salmon Junkies,
We are now opening bookings for our spring Steelhead and Chinook program 2016, where we will be chasing the largest and meanest Steelhead and Chinook in the world. We have secured full exclusivity for the European market. That means you will now be able to fish Skeena main stem and select tributaries in a FULL 6 day package in the company of some of the best and most hardcore Canadian Steelhead and Chinook guides available.
Skeena: Super-sized Steelhead and world record Chinook
Skeena. It is a powerful and evocative word. To the indigenous peoples of British Columbia’s north coast region it is the “River of Mists.” To fly fishers around the globe it is a dream destination offering nearly boundless opportunities to pursue what are among the largest sea-run fish on the planet. In Skeena country early spring typically offers the year’s most dependable conditions for tempting Steelhead with a fly. During late March and early April, as winter gives way to spring, precipitation falls as snow on the ridges and the rivers remain at winter height; flowing low and green in the valley bottoms and warming slowly with each lengthening day. The conditions are perfect for swinging big swimming flies on sinking tip lines and triggering the natural aggression of the Skeena’s legendary super-sized Steelhead.
Best Spring Steelhead and Chinook Program on the Planet
Many people believe that the Skeena watershed is easily accessible with easy-going fishing, but that is not the case if you want to get to the fish. Many of the best rivers and spots are more or less impossible to access without a guide, and the only way to get there is by power full jet boat and local knowledge. Some of the most attractive rivers are licensed with limited access for only a small number of people. Salmon Junkies has access to all classified water plus well-selected numbers of coastal rivers. Skeena has become quite a popular destination, even more so after we launched our short movie, but to fish it requires extremely talented guides who can maneuver and pick the right spots for any given time or situation. We dare to say that we have the best team of Steelhead guides and they are willing to share their deepest secrets by leading you to the fish.
There is a fine line between success and failure when fishing the Skeena and we have got it right. That is exactly why we believe that Salmon Junkies has tailored the best spring Steelhead and Chinook program on the Planet.

Warning: Fly fishing for Chinooks is a full on activity and not for the faint hearted, but for fly fishers that are after the juiciest kicks in fresh water there is not much else to top it.
