Now that’s a big Chinook!  Jason Haase landed this bright 40 lb Chinook in May on the mainstem Skeena, fishing a black and blue fly along a current seam.  Want to try this?  We’ve still got a few spaces left and are already booking into 2012.  Brett Hallinan Photo
Chinook Fly Fishing on the Skeena, Kitimat, Kalum, Copper and remote coastal rivers with both single hand and spey rods really is one of the most exciting fisheries in the Skeena region, particularly if you enjoy big game fishing.  After all, these fish average 15-35 lbs and can reach over 50.  Imagine one of those big Chinook, just days from the Ocean slamming at your 6 inch chartreuse tube fly and the ensuing mayhem? Bring an extra rod because there’s a good chance you’ll break your first one.  Here’s a brief sample of some of the Chinook our clients have caught Spey fishing this year:

Jason Haase with a 30 lb hen Chinook caught on the Kitimat River.  You should see the video that his friend Brett Hallinan took – epic.  Forthcoming…
