Rivers

In a rugged knot of mountains in northern British Columbia lies a spectacular,
beautiful valley, known to the First Nations as the Sacred Headwaters.

This sub-alpine basin is the birthplace of three of British Columbia´s most important wild Salmon rivers:
The Skeena, the Nass and the Stikine.

Like the Serengeti in Africa this paradise is one of the last remaining intact biotopes on earth.

British Columbia´s ancient rainforests and a huge coastline allow clear flowing rivers,
rich populated with sea-running fish such as
Salmon and Steelhead, Dolly Varden, Bull Trout and Cutthroat Trout.

British Columbia is known world-wide for its beautiful rivers full of Salmon and wild Steelhead.
Not only the fishing is incomparable in the world, the scenery is unmatched,
with breathtaking mountains, giant dark-green moss-covered trees,
crystal clear flowing creeks and rivers and sparkling lakes,
that all make British Columbia an amazing outdoor destination,
attracting adventure travelers and fishermen from all over the world.

     Skeena River

The Skeena River

The Skeena River, the largest in size, is the mother river to many well known tributaries,
including the Bulkley, Kispiox and Copper River.

The Skeena River is set in an amazing landscape, full of mountains and forests
and flows directly into the ocean.
This gives it another unique feature, as fishermen can target
Steelhead and Salmon fresh from the saltwater,
still dripping in sea lice.

The Skeena River in front of Little Wolf Resort and the surrounding rivers
offer an exciting fishing adventure for the experienced and skilled fisherman.

The mighty Skeena River forges its path through the valleys of the magnificent
Coast Mountains of British Columbia, to join the Pacific Ocean in Prince Rupert.
The Skeena River System offers numerous rivers and streams, all rich with Salmon,
Trout and Steelhead. The name Skeena River comes from the Gitsan word “Ksan”,
which means “River of the Mists”.
The Ksan Historical Village and Museum is a reconstructed native village,
located where the Skeena River and Bulkley River run together,
close to the native village of Gitanmaxx.
Gitanmaxx means: “people who fish by firelight”.

The Ksan Historical Village and Museum is explaining the village life and culture of the Gitsan Nation.
The historical village of Ksan is one of the main attractions to visit, while staying at Little Wolf Resort!

Thanks to the continuous return of Salmon and Steelhead,
the Skeena River is holding the
world-record for the Chinook-Salmon, with 92 and a half pounds
and also holds the world-record for the Coho-Salmon, with 25 and a half pounds
as well as the world-record for the Steelhead-Trout, with 36 pounds.

In comparison to other catches, taken elsewhere in the world,
the average size of fish in the Skeena River Region are considered to be trophies!
Chinook-Salmon over 50 pounds and Steelhead weighing over 20 pounds are not uncommon!

Biologists have also netted world-record size Chum-Salmon,
as well as Chinook-Salmon over 100 pounds!
The prime time for targeting King-Salmon is in July. In August, fresh runs of Steelhead,
Coho-Salmon as well as lots of Sockeye-Salmon are running into the Skeena.

     Kitimat River

The Kitimat River

The Kitimat River, another coastal river, cuts its way through a beautiful valley to the Pacific Ocean.
This river never sleeps. Years ago, the Kitimat River was nearly destroyed by man and nature.
Pollution and over-logging in the Kitimat Valley, combined with heavy rain periods leading to floods,
were changing the river´s course and damaging natural spawn.
Because of these damages, the Kitimat River Hatchery was established
to protect the Salmon and Steelhead populations in the Kitimat River.

Today you can fish for all five species of Salmonids:
Chinook-SalmonCoho-SalmonChum-SalmonPink-Salmon and Steelhead-Trout.

Hatchery returns, together with the natural, wild stocks,
are making the fishing experience absolutely fantastic! (Noel F.Gyger)

The Kitimat River is excellent for fishing for Steelhead in April,
for Chinook-Salmon in June and for some of the world´s largest Chum-Salmon,
ranging from 15 to 32 pounds,
as well as for Pink-Salmon and Coho-Salmon throughout the entire summer and fall.
Exploring the Kitimat River with its unique scenery and wildlife by drift-boat
is one of the big highlights of Little Wolf Resort´s extensive fishing program and is always a peaceful and unforgettable adventure!

     Nass River

The Nass River

The Nass River System is one of the most beautiful and scenic
river systems in northern British Columbia.

In 1700, a volcano erupted in the Nisga’a Valley and expelled hot lava within a radius of 32 square miles.

Today, the lava beds are covered with white moss
and the rivers are emerald green, with little waterfalls and lava tubes.

The Nass region, with its incredible scenery, is almost untouched
and a perfect location for targeting fresh, wild Steelhead and Chinook-Salmon.

These secret rivers, in the wild, untouched rainforest,
are considered to be the best Steelhead rivers in the world!
