I am going to the Buckley River for the first time this fall and was wondering if anyone has info on sites where one can pick up status of the run, weather, flows, and the like. Any personal knowledge would, of course, be hugely appreciated.

I am also very interested in this same kind of information. (Travel type tips and Guide information as well.)

Three of us drove up from Northern Calif two years ago - spent a bit over a week - most of the time out of downtown Smithers - in a motel - quite inexpensive - under $80 canadian and that included breakfast. The Bulkley was in between runs so we did not do very well but awsome water - right in the downtown area plus upstream and down. Spent soem time in New Hazleton and fished hte Skeena - truly awsome river - it is huge there are some runs you can fish all day and just barly cover them. The Kispiox was out when we were there
A couple of sites that might give you info on the area and rivers.
Last one might start out at the .com and go from there

For overall Skeena steelhead run strength, a good indicator is the Tyee test fishery info at http://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/ops/northfm/skeena/tyeetest.htm (the steelhead index in .pdf format is near the bottom of the page).
There are a number of great guides in the Skeena region: http://www.speycast.com/ Mike and Denise Maxwell, or Keith Douglas at http://www.driftwoodlodge.ca/ are two.

You guys got me thinking and I am considering another trip up there but the tyee test would indicate pretty weak runs - anyone have any updated info on Skeena runs? Would hate to drive all that way for a bust!!

I'll be camping on the Bulkley and other area rivers for at least the last 2 weeks of September. My fishing buddy broke his leg so I'll be fishing alone most of the time, which makes drifting in my raft problematic (ie only one vehicle). If anyone cares to do a drift or two, let's talk.

Just fished (9/4-9/13) the Kispiox/Bulkley both were in perfect shape. It had been off weather for a few days before we arrived but the river was in shape the following day. The run is a little late and numbers are down from last year, but if you know how to tight line fish and can present your flies well you will surely be into fish. Last day I fished with this husky black bear 100' away from me, he just sat on a log and waited his turn.
