Skeena Spey is a team of seasoned fly fishing professionals headed by renowned casting instructor Brian Niska of Whistler BC. Brian has a fabulous team of guides who pride themselves not only on putting folks onto big, bright fish but also on improving their guests’ angling and casting skills. Their fishing program will focus primarily on the main Skeena which many consider the ultimate anadromous highway and home to the largest fly friendly salmon and steelhead in the world. With parties of six or less anglers guests will enjoy single accommodations and excellent meals at their newly renovated lodge which overlooks the Skeena River in Terrace. Few places in the world boast a longer season or a more experienced crew of guides.

Fishing Program: The mild coastal climate in the Terrace allows for good angling conditions for ocean bright fish from March through October.
