Silver Seekers Lodge, B.C. 

Fly Water Travel is proud to offer heli-fly in trips to famous steelhead waters of BC’s Upper Copper River. These trips can be as long or as short as you like and come with deluxe accommodations in the Bulkley Valley.

For anglers looking for short stays, great accommodations and most importantly, the ability to fly into the Upper Copper with an expert guide, this is the program. Head guide and lodge owner Jim Britton is a second-generation steelhead guide from the Bulkley Valley with more than 30 years of local steelhead guiding experience. Jim also has what few other have: the ultra-coveted rights and rod days to heli-guide the uppermost reaches of the Copper River. Were there ever a steelhead paradise, this is it. Guests will fly in roughly 20 minutes from Smithers and then inflate a small raft to facilitate the day’s downstream travel. Guests will wade fish prime runs, many of which are clear and intimate and renowned for excellent dry fly fishing. When this section of river is in shape and firing, it is truly some the best steelhead fishing in the world. Guests might also be able to fly into the Babine and Upper Skeena. If guests would like to extend their stays and branch out beyond the Upper Copper, Jim can also jet-boat fish them on the Morice (where Jim’s family ran a lodge for more than 30 years) or the Skeena. This unique fishing program is built around private parties of 2-4 anglers who enjoy single occupancy rooms at a great home with stunning mountain view. Recommended stay lengths are from two to four days.
