Fishing off Ferry Island Bar in Terrace, BC
The fishing on the Skeena River off the gravel bar at Ferry Island has been spectacular in the last few weeks. Today a number of people have been limiting out for sockeye and pink salmon.
Most of the fishers have been fly-fishing with a few using a cast method using a variety of techniques from floats to drag lining. All methods seem equally successful.
Travel on Hwy 16 and look for the Ferry Island Campground. When you turn into the campground take a hard left before the gate and park in the large parking lot situated below the Skeena River Bridge.
From here there is a short walk to the fishing site.
