British Columbia king salmon get the nod in a new trailer from Todd Moen and Catch Magazine. (We love Moen vids.)
From Catch Magazine:
“Chinook – BC Summer Tour took me up to the far reaches of British Columbia’s Skeena River and the many tributaries of that amazing Canadian watershed. For Catch Magazine’s 48th edition, T-Motion theater presents a video about the wild and adventurous chase for summer Chinook on the swing, via helicopters piloted by Dave Hiltenkamp of Summit Helicopters LTD and jet sleds from the Skeena Spey Riverside Wilderness & Lodge. The anglers on camera include none other than the talented Adrienne Comeau, who guides for Skeena Spey Riverside Wilderness & Lodge and Steve McPhail, owner of Nass River Steelhead Company out of Terrace BC. This tech-infused video includes some great insight on fly fishing for the big Chinook Salmon, who live in the world-renown waters of British Columbia. Thanks to the British Columbia Fishing Resort and Outfitter Association, Eddie Bauer, Ross Reels, Skeena Spey Riverside Wilderness & Lodge, Nass River Steelhead Company and Summit Helicopters LTD. Get out your notes and start planning your next adventure while you watch this action packed, information loaded video!

More on this fly fishing destination:
British Columbia is the westernmost province of Canada and is treasured by outdoors enthusiasts for its natural beauty that feature both Pacific coastline and magnificent mountain ranges. British Columbia has massive rivers that access the Pacific Ocean and welcome anadromous fish that attract anglers from all over the globe. B.C. welcomes all five species of Pacific salmon, but perhaps the greatest draw for anglers are the steelhead that make their way into Western Canadian rivers. In addition to salmon and steelhead, B.C. has bull trout, dolly varden, and sea run cutthroat, among other freshwater species.
The rivers of British Columbia are large, and for this reason, float trips are an attractive option for many anglers. In addition, to cover water effectively, Spey and switch rods are go-to rods for many salmon and steelhead anglers in B.C.
British Columbia has many prized rivers, but some rivers of note include the Skeena and related tributaries such as the Sustut, Babine, Bulkley, and Zymoetz Rivers, as well as the Damdochax, Dean, Pitt, Nass, Bell Irving, Columbia, Morice, and the Fraser Rivers (to name a few).
B.C. also has wildlife that add an element to angling in Western Canada. Bald eagles, wolverines, moose, and grizzly bears bring anglers plenty to look for in the British Columbia wilderness.
