StellakoRiver

The Stellako River is only 150 Km west of Prince George.   The Stellako is probably one of the most famous rivers in BC and because of this notoriety it receives a lot of fishing pressure.  Nevertheless, anglers flock to this river to catch the large rainbows from June 1st to October 31st each year.


A 9’ for a 4 wt rod is ideal for the rainbow trout in this River.  My go to flies are bushy dry flies such as a #6 Orange Stimulator, #12 High Water Caddis, and a #14 Rusty Elk Hair Caddis. 

When I fish nymphs a 15’ type III sinktip line always helps in getting the fly down.

Flies to start with
