Fly fishing for Steelhead on the Morice River

Rivers in Western Canada - Morice River


How to Get to the Morice

.

The Morice can be reached likewise from the west or from the east. Coming from the west you are likely to pass through Smithers. The town you have to go to to reach the Morice is Houston - Houston BC that is - famous for the world's largest fly rod. That is also where the Morice changes its name to Bulkley. Smithers is about 65 kms from Houston, a drive of roundabout 45 minutes.

Coming from the east, you will probably start in Prince George, about 310 kms from Smithers - or about 3 hours and a half to drive.

The Morice is practically the source of the Bulkley. The fishing however is completely different. Believe it or not: I have yet to catch a steelhead in the Morice.

Not easy to fish

The problem with the Morice is not the choice of flies, but the structure of its banks. If you have finally found access to the bank, it declines so steeply that you can barely wade a step or two. Places of access being very rare, they tend to be crowded on top of it all.

So, to get in some decent fishing after all, you have to use a boat. Fishing from a drift boat or a jet boat doesn't make a lot of difference. You will not be able to fish from a jet boat, however, unless you hire a professional guide which will cost you several hundred dollars a day.
