Steelhead are the strongest freshwater game species on earth and Bulkley River plays host to the largest number of steelhead in the Skeena River drainage. You’ll quickly discover how aggressive Bulkley River steelhead are for either a dry fly or a sink-tip. Typically, a Bulkley steelhead weighs in around 12 pounds, but it can range anywhere from 4-30 pounds. Each season several 20-pound or larger steelhead are successfully hooked by our guests.
