We frequent the wild places. Our philosophy is: No matter the effort, we try to get where the others aren't. From helicopter access to streams to tricky boat rides into remote reaches, Epic has you covered.
Skeena Region: This is your stereotypical British Columbia wilderness. Snowcapped vistas with rugged ranges running in every direction. It's the land of grizzlies and moose and of valleys choked with timber. It's the proud territory of the Tsimshian, Gitxsan, and Wet'suwet'en peoples and has a rich tapestry of northern tradition. Lastly, it's home to the biggest salmon and steelhead in the world. They return annually to the world’s most famed glides of perfect swing water. It's affectionately referred to as Steelhead Paradise and, at first glance, you'll agree.
Haida Gwaii: An angler’s paradise unrivaled. In our estimation, the traditional homelands of the Haida people are best place in the world to winter steelhead. Days are long and hiking is the most vital transportation, but the rewards are great. Home to some of the largest Sitka Spruce and Cedar groves, walking through these cathedrals is a perk of island steelheading. The streams are a fortress of alder and woody debris and light fights to cut through. It's a fishery where precision and short casts are rewarded and where local knowledge is paramount. Come and discover your new favorite streams.
Togiak: One of the great Bristol Bay king salmon rivers, born in a mountainous wildlife refuge and spilling across a sprawling estuary into the Bering Sea. With all 5 species of pacific salmon, Arctic char, giant rainbow trout, Dolly Varden, and an immense smelt return, the Togiak is teeming with life. Perfect pea gravel runs that are a dream to swing and tidal pushes of fish that fill them up throughout the day. This is the real Alaska you expect.
