Work Channel: Chinook and Humpbacks

Unforgettable sights. Head north in the early summer to the beautiful mouth of the Work Channel, just north of Prince Rupert. Drop your line for a chance at catching a giant Skeena River Chinook, and keep your eyes open to catch a glimpse of the incredible “bubble nets” created by Humpback Whales to help them trap and catch fish themselves.

A river – or two – runs through it. Put on your waders and journey north of Prince Rupert. The shallow waters of the area’s many rivers attract spawning Coho Salmon looking for food and shelter. A skillful fly fisher – who has good timing – can also catch them on the nearby open ocean using dry flies.

Fly in, and drop a line. Take a puddle-jumper (float plane) from Prince Rupert and fish the border between B.C. and Alaska. Stay in a well-appointed fishing lodge and have a guide take you in search of Chinook, Coho, Chum and other Salmon. Venture into the open ocean to find large and plentiful Halibut. Enjoy the long, summer nights and possibly even see the Aurora (Northern Lights).
