The River

The Bulkley River has one of the largest, if not the largest wild Steelhead runs in the world. The river is blessed with over ninety miles of classic fly water.


The Fish

Steelhead from 5 to 30 pounds... These wild fish are well known for attacking surface presentations throughout the season.


The Season

Primetime for Steelhead is late August to the middle of November


The Lodge

The Bulkley River Lodge is on a remote section of one of the best Steelhead rivers on the planet located within the traditional Wet'suwet'en Territory. River-front access and no neighbors are great assets for a fishing lodge.

Howdy! I'm so thrilled to be back at the lodge this year-I can't believe it's been six years! Since then I completed my BaSc at Quest University in Squamish, became a birth support worker, and snuck in some wicked adventures along the way. I moved back to Smithers this spring to reconnect with my community here and to enjoy a proper winter when the fishing season wraps up! 
Looking forward to watching the seasons change on the Bulkley and seeing you all soon!
