Skeena Chinook and Steelhead – Definitely not for the faint hearted.

Salmon Junkies News / Articles, Newsletters


A limited number of rods came up for Chinook in June/July and Fall Steelhead at Skeena and tributaries

Join us chasing the largest and meanest Steelhead and Chinook in the world. Salmon Junkies 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

Many people believe that the Skeena watershed is easily accessible with easy-going fishing, but that is not true if you really want to get to the fish. Many of the best rivers and spots are more or less impossible to access without a guide and special license, and the only way to get there is by powerful jet boats 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 for trophy Steelhead and Chinook, even more so after we launched our short movies, 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 and Chinook 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. That is exactly why we believe that Salmon Junkies has tailored the best spring Steelhead and Chinook program on the Planet.


The biggest and meanest Chinook in the world.

We are very excited to announce that five rods have become available on short notice in prime period for the big boys.

–          June 26 to July 2                               2 spaces available (6 Days / 7 nights)

–          July 24 to 30                                      3 spaces available (6 Days / 7 nights)

We target the Kitimat, Copper, Kalum and Skeena rivers for Chinook averaging 20 to 50 pounds and ranging up to 80 pounds, and beyond. (The Skeena’s biggest have been known to reach 100 pounds!) The Kitimat is a small to mid-sized river with cobble and gravel pools well-suited to swinging flies. The Copper river is a classic, mid-sized fly fishing stream with miles of great swinging water and boulder and cobble runs. The Copper hosts a prolific run of Chinooks.The Kalum is a mid-sized river that holds fish tight to its seams and offers a chance at truly large Chinook.

The broad and powerful lower Skeena is the main route for Chinook salmon headed to tributaries far upstream. Please make sure you bring extra and fresh backing on your reel!

What to expect? Chinook.

Why not watch our small movie and judge for yourself?

Or our latest film “Sealiced”

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.
