Work Channel: Chinook and Humpbacks

  

Overview

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.
