Terrace area in early august

Hi, considering a trip to Terrace BC in early August for early steelhead. Any info on the timing, lodges, guides, etc would be greatly appreciated.

I vistited Skeena Spey Lodge at the end of Sept / Beginning of October this year, and we had a blast. Great Guides, the food was amazing (thanks Josh& JS), the accomodations were super comfortable, and the location was good. Close to the mouth of the copper, right on the Skeena. Fishing was tough- the river was rising the whole time we were there, but we did manage some fish.

Talk to Brian Niska. You can't go wrong with these guys.

I guess you could say I enjoyed my trip.

Fished it in 9/13 to 9/19 with Nichols Dean and never got a fish swinging in any area, Copper, Klahum (sp)or Skeena.
Not many fish this year. If and when I go back I will try another lodge.

I wenst last year to Fisherman's No. 1 Lodge, just 10 minutes north of Terrace. Nice place, friendly people, good service and fair prices.
I got a boat with jet engine on trailer and a small 4x4 and did all my fishing as a NRA by myself and some other unguided guestst of the lodge.
Got some steel, a few coho and too much pink.
The guides were on the hot spots every day and they probably switched spots with each other. I guess their clients caught a few fish more than I did, but then they payed for it.
Fished the Copper a couple of days too and caught some nice steel there as well.
But the Copper was crowded. Hard to find a parking place along the service road. You have to be there at first light!

My best memories are not too old!!

I've gone a few times and fished with Wally and his group out of Spey Lodge. Awesome guides, who can adapt and take you where the fish are. If they aren't on the Skeena, they can take you to a few of their other camps in other drainages. Awesome food too.

First question, why so early?
I don't understand why people go early.
The later the better in most cases, as there are only more fish in the river.
A previous poster stated not many fish during the mid September time frame. And would not go back to the same lodge.
Guides or lodges cannot produce fish that are not in the river.
I have found that the mid September time frame is a little early, yes , don't get me wrong, there are fish, but why chance a trip of a lifetime and go when there may not be more fish in the river.
I have found that the last week in September seems to get a good pulse of fish. This I have found every trip.
I also think most lodges and guides are professional.
I would go to a lodge that fishes more than 1 river as they can blow out overnight. And variety is nice.
