I am booked to go Terrace at the end of July, postponed from last year.
What do you think are the chances of the Canadians letting me in by then?
I am due my second vaccine in 10 days so that shouldn’t be a problem.

I'm in the same boat, beginning of August.
Here in Denmark, everyone is supposed to have their second shot by late June.
I'm semi optimistic ;)

That's fine having your vaccination but the chances will depend on what's happening over there and what regulations the Canadian government set.

Yip...I'm almost resigned to changing my plans to somewhere more exotic this year.
Hopefully back out Skeena way next year.

I agree we may be ok but we will be totally dependent on other countries letting us in.
All very depressing only light at the end of the tunnel is that we should be allowed to travel within England to fish by the end of march.Still not the same as standing in a river such as the Skeena which you know is full of fish. Hooking and landing them is another matter. 😃

I have been following the Covid-19 situation in BC quite closely.
They are currently seeing a big surge in numbers of ”cases” and have had a slow rollout of vaccines.
They are unlikely to allow foreign tourists until much later in the year if at all.
But more importantly with their current rates they are predicted to be on the UK‘s red list so mandatory quarantine in a government hotel will be needed!
we will know more in a couple of weeks when the official traffic light system is announced.

Hi from Canada, ya we are closed down in the midst of the third wave and working hard to get vaccines out (we have no domestic supply).

Right above, it all depends on the USA and our long, shared, pourous border. I watch this closely, as my fishing is an hour away across it; otherwiise 2-3 hours of driving as I am right now. Lots of complexities with international travels, such as India and we've closed off flights from there.

So, your link for any updates is here: https://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/services/covid/menu-eng.html

Currently there is a 2 week quarantine, 3 days of which are in an approved hotel. Quarantine does not include a fishing lodge, although you can get creative with your outfitter at your own risk. Driving acrosss the border is similar.

Just changed my booking to July 2022, hopefully it will have all settled down by then 🤞

Another Canadian, you made the right call. Right now I can't even travel to New Brunswick to the Miramichi, so I doubt they'll open external borders until November-ish at the very latest.

Today I should have been arriving at Heathrow from BC.
The weather in Terrace looked to have been good for fishing!
I see that BC are now going to be letting in vaccinated tourists from the 7th September, just 6 weeks to late for me 😭
Good luck to those who have booked trips in September and October, roll on next year for me.
