The Nass River is one of the three sacred headwaters, situated in northern BC. The fishing grounds sit roughly 220 km from the ocean. The watershed is 380 Km long in length and flows into Portland Inlet in the North Pacific Ocean. The river is only accessed via Helicopter. There are no airstrips or roads in the vicinity. The closest road is well over a 150 km away. We fly you directly to our camp from Terrace BC. The flight into the camp takes 1 hour and 16 minutes depending on weather of course. The area is rich in first nation’s history and has a strong population of Moose and Wolves throughout the Valley. The surrounding forests are first growth timber and have no signs of logging, civilization, or man for that matter. This is a truly majestic place with mile upon mile of perfect fly water accessed with 11.6 Aires rafts and an A-Star BA Helicopter. Our Camp is strategically place on the banks of the Upper Nass River with 5 very productive pools a stone’s throw from camp in any direction. We cater to a maximum of four guests per week. The guest to guide ratio is 2:1. We have two guides and one chef on site. The season runs from late August to late October each year. The peak of the run is mid- Sept until late in October. These fish have never seen a fly and are very aggressive. Each guest can expect to catch 2-5 steelheads per day but it is not uncommon to have each guest reach double digits after their second day of fishing. The average size is 12-16 pounds with fish over 20 pounds being caught each week. Fish over 25 pounds are not uncommon and we see a number of those each season.

“Getting Chromer to put together your trip is a no-brainer. Yos Gladstone seems to know everyone in the BC sport fishing industry, and has a sixth sense for putting you where need to be at the right time to put those lunkers on the line. Don’t bother trying to put it all together yourself, call Chromer, and get a customized itinerary that maximizes you’re chances. On top of it all, you get courteous and personal service.”
