Bell II Lodge – The Region and Rivers:
The world famous Skeena and Nass rivers have their headwaters high in the mountains to the East of the Bell II resort. These two watersheds have become well respected for their world class steelhead fishing over the last century. The main focus of the Bell II fishing program is to provide exciting steelhead fishing on the Bell Irving River. This mountain river is a tributary of the mighty Nass, which is fed mainly by snowmelt and to a lesser extent rainfall. Anglers are able to fish floating lines with weighted flies or dry flies at almost all times of the season without having to cast heavy sinking tips. The Bell Irving provides a good variety of quality pools and runs offering exceptional opportunities to anglers.
