Nass vs. Skeena

Hi Everyone,

Are the timing of steelhead runs in the Nass System (e.g. Bell Irving) the same as the Skeena (e.g. Bulkley)?

My buddies and I traditionally go a certain time in the fall to the Skeena but are considering the Nass next year and just wanted to make sure the runs are similar in timing.

If not, is the Nass earlier or later? e.g the Dean is way earlier.

Of course we know the fish start and continue to come in over the course of the fall period so fishing later you'll have more fish in the river. We just want to compare the same time periods in each river system.

Inquiring minds would like to know.

PM me if you prefer. Thanks,

I've only done one trip to the Bell Irving but from what I saw and was told by the guides it would appear that the timing is similar. The issue with the Bell Irving is that you need the glacial junk to clear and the colder weather makes that happen. I was there for the first week of Oct and that seemed to be pretty bang on. The guides I was with were terrible so I'll send you a PM on that. Overall I had a great time and thought it was a lovely river.
