2021 Steelhead Availability - Nass Base Camp
Jesse Robbins
December 30, 2020
Fly Water Travel has had a long love affair with the wild steelhead bearing rivers of the remarkable Skeena River watershed. The magic of this region is hard to describe if you have not been and hard to forget once you have experienced it. Availability for 2021 is limited and changes quickly, but there are openings to be had. Many of these offerings are available exclusively through Fly Water Travel so we look forward to hearing from you and answering any questions you might have. Please note all open dates need to be reconfirmed by Fly Water, as spaces fill quickly.

Nass Base Camp

Two and half hours north of the hustle and bustle of Terrace, BC and the fabled waters of the lower Skeena, there is a small, unassuming, homespun lodge that operates in anonymity and solitude. Their waters all flow eventually into the mighty Nass, the first big river system north of the Skeena. Their mainstay system is the Bell Irving, a gorgeous river where huge snow-capped mountains rise, in places, straight up out of the river. To call this river majestic is, in many ways, an understatement. The other systems will remain unnamed for good reason but they are unique, productive and very hard to blow out, making this program one of the most diverse and foul-weather resistant in all of BC.

Catering to only four anglers per week, this is an intimate, casual and totally unpretentious set up. You could even call it a bit funky but the guides are as good as they get, the meals are delicious and hearty and the value is unquestionable. For those who appreciate getting off the beaten path and don't need white table clothes or turn down service, this is as good as it gets.

Available Dates:

  • September 11-18: 4 spots
  • September 18-25: 4 spots
  • September 25 - October 2: 6 spots
  • October 30 - November 6: 4 spots

2021 Rate: $5,373 USD for a 7 night/6 day package

Included: Accommodations and meals at the lodge, transfers between Terrace airport and the camp, guided fishing, flies, last night's accommodations in Terrace, BC taxes.
Not Included: Airfare to/from Terrace, staff guide and gratuities, alcohol, fishing licenses.

Notes: This is a very simple, and slightly funky lodge that provides a great value and a very diverse and productive fishing program. This area has very little fishing pressure and two of their key systems are very hard to blow out.
