At Bulkley BaseCamp we realize not everyone wants to be fussed over like at a lodge. Instead of having every creature comfort known to mankind, some anglers just prefer to sit at a riverside camp fire every night after fishing until dark.
Our camps are as comfortable as humanly possible and sit strategically on the finest fisheries in northern BC.
We only target Steelhead and king salmon with spey rods in lesser known, small rivers on the BC coast and Skeena drainages. Our main objective is to show our guests a true BC fishing adventure, one they can return to year after year and still ﬁsh new waters each and every time they come.
Our operations headquarters is centrally located in Smithers, BC which is the heart of steelhead paradise and a short float plane or helicopter ride to the coast .
We hold valuable rod days specifically on the best, trophy steelhead and king salmon fisheries in the province.
By utilizing our main lodge, then building luxury base camps in pristine remote settings, we have created our own private access to the best spey fishing opportunities on the Skeena system and beyond.
For King Salmon
Depending on the week, we fly into the Douglas channel, Gardner Canal, and or Portland inlet for unique small coastal rivers teaming with King Salmon.
We fish the lower, middle, and upper reaches of the Skeena River. We have access to rod days on the Bulkley, Morice, and Babine rivers. With heli access there is literally nowhere we can't go.
Fishing at Camp
At all our camps we spey ﬁsh for tide fresh chinook and giant wild steelhead on rivers we consider to be the finest quality experiences in North America. We never rely on one river for your week, and go to great lengths to put you on rivers that have limited angling and guided pressure. We have done this buy purchasing rod days on the best king salmon and steelhead rivers in BC.
No Hatchery Fish
We specialize in spey fishing for Steelhead and king salmon on the ﬂy. Our diverse ﬁsheries are unique in that we specifically target trophy wild, native BC Salmon and steelhead, no hatchery fish are ever targeted.
