Guests have access to the best water on the mainstem Skeena and its famous tributaries, including the Copper and Kalum Rivers. With every cast there is opportunity to hook the fish of a lifetime! The lodge was developed by passionate anglers dedicated to chasing down the strongest sea-run fish in the world.

The second-longest river entirely within British Columbia, the Skeena River watershed drains 54,400 km2 (21,000 sq. mi.) of northwestern BC. The river begins its 570 km- (350 mi) long journey from the Sacred Headwaters before meeting the Pacific Ocean in Chatham Sound. Due to its abundant salmon and steelhead runs, the Skeena region has long been home to the Gitxsan and Tsimshian people. To the modern angler, the Skeena is known as a fish superhighway, with runs of all five Pacific salmon species and wild steelhead migrating up the river at different points throughout the year. Starting in March we target the spring steelhead run swinging flies to chrome fish. In June and July, we bring out the big guns and focus attention on the Chinook salmon run, the hardest fighting fish in the river. Come August, the summer steelhead are running as well as all the other salmon species. This is the best opportunity for the Skeena grand slam! Through the fall, it's all about steelhead and Coho. This is dry-fly season and there is nothing more exciting than watching a wild steelhead crush your fly.
