Steelhead fishing in British Columbia is one of the more challenging river sport fishing opportunities we have to offer. They aren’t nearly as abundant as our salmon and at times they can seem to be elusive and “moody”, and will test your abilities, knowledge, and experience to its fullest. However, it seems that this sort of challenge grows on certain anglers, and the Steelhead has a large world-wide following of die-hard “Steelheaders.” For many river anglers, finding, hooking and landing a big Steelhead is the ultimate experience in river fishing!
In this part of British Columbia, we offer Steelhead Adventures on several different rivers with each providing you with its own unique character, setting, and spectacular scenery. Our expert guides will know what rivers to visit depending on the season and current fishing conditions. Our winter-run Steelhead is present in our rivers from December to May, with the best fishing available from February to April.
