The Skeena River is in prime shape and these are the kinds of fish we’re finding at our on-river Skeena Camp.  Here’s head guide, Dustin Kovacvich, with a 20 lb hen Steelhead he landed while doing a demonstration for clients. Al Ducros photo
Our Skeena River camp is now in full swing and the fishing has been very productive for Steelhead, Sockeye, Pink and Coho salmon.  It’s a great opportunity to fish all day for a week straight – 15 hours, if you like!  Here’s some photos taken courtesy of Nicholas Dean guide, Al Ducros, from earlier this week.  On Sunday, Jeff Bright and several of his clients will be at the camp – stay tuned for more photos and details on their fishing…

Sockeye Salmon are abundant on the Skeena this year!  They’re great sport, and it’s possible to catch a bunch of them in a day at the Skeena Camp. Al Ducros photo

Three generations of anglers are at the camp currently, including Bill Wernett (pictured here), his son Steven and his grandson Spencer.  Some of the wading was tough for Bill, so we helped him out by setting up a chair, right on the seam.  He’s been catching a bunch of fish and having a great time.
