After weeks with super low water conditions and very cold weather, we suddenly got warmer weather last Sunday. With more than 140mm rain within 48 hours, we blew out from the Skeena mainstem. Thanks to the many difference water systems we have access to, we manage to land some unforgettable big Steelhead during the second part of last week. Most memorable team catch was Michel Norman and Thomas Granhof´s double hook up two day in a row. In total Michel and Thomas manage to land 10 big Steelhead between 12 Lb to 18 Lb. Friday morning Ulrik Bentzen got a super steelie also measured to 18 Lb – Ulrik´s fish was a result of determined fishing strategy, well supported by some high volume “Russian thinking juice” the evening before. At Salmon Junkies we always try to think outside of the box. We have developed Atlantic salmon programs that are among the best in the world today. We have some of the best spring Steelhead fishing available, and in that tradition we are now tailoring one of the best Chinook programs on the market. We are very excited to announce that in 2015 we will offer prime Chinook weeks for all Junkies, where you will be able to fish Skeena mainstem and select tributaries in a full 6-day package in company of some of the best and most hardcore Canadian Chinook and Steelhead guides available. On top of all this we will be providing you with first class accommodation and gourmet dining at Pioneer Fishing Lodge managed by Jezz and Pip Crosby truly amazing people.
We at Salmon Junkies wants to thanks our partner and host Nicholas Dean Outdoors and Pioneer lodge for three unforgettable weeks, and we look very much forward to continue and expand our partnership in the future to come.
