Our Mission

The North Coast Steelhead Alliance is committed to securing the escapement of wild steelhead in sufficient numbers to sustain healthy wild steelhead stocks and a robust sport fishery in northwestern British Columbia.

The NCSA is dedicated to working with all levels of government, industry, community and stakeholder groups to preserve and enhance Skeena wild steelhead – so that you and others will have the opportunity to fish for these amazing fish for many years to come.

The Skeena River Fishery

The Skeena River system, in northwestern British Columbia is home to world renowned wild steelhead & salmon. If you are an avid angler, you may already have heard of the thrill of sportfishing on the Skeena for the elusive steelhead. It is an experience not to be missed!

The Skeena is also the second largest British Columbia waterway for commercial salmon fishing, including sockeye, chinook, pink, coho and chum salmon. Historically, a commercial salmon gill net fishery is permitted at the mouth of the Skeena during the peak steelhead run between mid-July and mid-August.

As a mixed-stock river system, a balance must be struck to ensure first and foremost the protection of all species of fish, but also a fair balance of resources between commercial and sportfishing interests. Achieving this balance requires a shift to conservation based fisheries Management.

If you are interested in more information about the NCSA, wild steelhead, or steelhead sportfishing on the Skeena system, we look forward to hearing from you at the contact information below.
