Derek Botchford, owner of the famous Frontier Farwest Steeelhead Lodge on the Bulkley has been discreetly operating a wilderness king salmon fishing program on a remote and gorgeous coastal system whose name, alas, must remain anonymous. This season there is space for a few newcomers to enjoy this ultra-special wilderness experience. This system is home to solid numbers of dime bright super-charged kings that are hard to land. Of equal import is that this river is best described as a smaller version of the Dean. Not Bad!

Next we are are looking at a really fun six angler tent camp tucked into the woods in total privacy. There will be a gear/ drying tent, a shower set-up and a crackling campfire every night. There will be home water to fish and jet boat access to miles of great water. The days will be long and the weather will be warm. Anglers will typically be guided from 6 AM to 12 noon, then take a mid-day break and fish again from 3 PM to 9 PM.

Anglers will fish two per guide and move about the system by jet boat. All fishing for these wild kings will be traditional down and across swing fish (spey rods preferred) and all fish will be released unharmed.

The trip will originate in Smithers BC where guests will spend their first night in deluxe single accommodations at Frontier Farwest Lodge on the Bulkley. The following day anglers will fly to the coast in a deHavilland Otter landing on floats in the ocean. From there they will transfer up-river by jet boat to camp.
