I am considering a trip to the Terrace area this year. Kind of all over the map as to the type of trip but appreciate any advice that might help me narrow the choices. I have been to BC once before (Dean late June/early July for Chinook/Steelhead).
Considering April possibly early May for Steelhead and possibly early chinook.
Considering late June/early July targeting primarily Chinook
Considering September/Octobet Steelhead trip
Will probably do a week at a lodge/guided trip and possibly some extra days on own or with a guide. Things I am trying to consider are: river/weather conditions and river stability, overall fishing experience. Have looked at some of the lodges such as Spey Lodge, Skeena River, and Nicholas Dean. Kind of intrigued with Jerome's program and either his spring trips or his fall week up on the Bell Irving/Nash.
Last thought I have heard the BC snowpack may be substantial this year. Will that impact timing or choices?
Also, I have thought about driving to Terrace. How is the drive to Terrace from Vancouver(how long, road conditions, lodging etc.) and are the roads ok to drive in April and October?
Would appreciate any feedback, advice, pros/cons on the above or other options.
