Fly Water Travel is pleased to announce a diverse and novel new offering for game steelheaders keen on fishing the fabled waters of the Skeena system. These trips will be guided by 30 year veteran guide Kelly Hassell and supported by Derek Botchford’s heads-up team from Frontier Farwest Lodge. These trips will be the first in the region to enable anglers to fish the Skeena 4 section, the lower Bulkley, the upper Bulkley and the Morice in a single week. Trips are for 2-4 anglers and guests will use jet boats to reach the prime runs in the region.
