Destinations

Skeena River / Nicholas Dean Outdoors
Located in Terrace, British Columbia, the hub of the Lower Skeena Valley, NDO is perfectly situated to provide all-inclusive packages for steelhead, chinook and coho in spring, summer and fall. Our trusted partner and friend for nearly 20 years, now operating out of Yellow Cedar Lodge overlooking the Skeena.
 
Ekaluk River / Lyall's Camp Ekaluk

A short ride by float plane from Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, and located on a bluff overlooking the river estuary, Lyall’s is a true wilderness camp offering a stunning view of the fabled Northwest Passage and surrounding Arctic landscape. Guests have walking access to the entire length of the river from the outlet of Lake Ferguson to the sea. A closely guarded secret, closed in 2018 and reopening for 2022, the camp offers an extraordinary experience centered around fishing for large sea-run Arctic char. 

Rio Gallegos / Salmon Junkies
Our associates since 2012, Salmon Junkies develop and provide attractive, all-inclusive angling programs on a number of waters around the globe for sea-run fish. The program at Estancia Carlota offers exclusive, double-bank access to a 22+ km reach of the renowned Rio Gallegos. Newly available for the 2023 season will be an add-on package for Atlantic steelhead on the Rio Santa Cruz.
