SPEY AND BOUNDARY LODGE - BC, CANADA

 

SPEY AND BOUNDARY LODGE - BC, CANADA

Strategically situated on the banks of the Skeena River, Spey Lodge offers unlimited availability to the fly-friendly waters of the lower Skeena watershed, home to the largest runs of wild fish in North America. The lodge has six double occupancy rooms along with a large lounge, dining room and all other necessary amenities. Further to the north lies Spey’s sister operation – Boundary Lodge. A slightly smaller lodge built on the banks of the Bell-Irving River, Boundary was designed and constructed as a remote, exclusive steelhead lodge catering to only four rods per week from September through November. The guys at Spey begin the season in mid-March with the arrival of spring steelhead. Throughout the summer, anglers can catch five different species of sea-bright Pacific salmon in addition to resident trout. Starting in late July, Spey Lodge offers some of the best steelhead fishing in the world, which continues into the fall. The target species and the rivers fished vary from month to month, but the techniques stay relatively the same. Swinging wet flies with floating lines and light wet-tips is most effective. You can also skate dry flies to large steelhead, catching fish on the surface that can easily exceed 20 pounds!

Typical Length of Stay

Standard package is a five day / six night package (Monday to Saturday). Change over days can be adjusted.

Fishing Information

Spey Lodge King SalmonThe lodge begins its season in mid-March with the arrival of the spring steelhead. Throughout the summer, anglers can catch five different species of sea-bright Pacific salmon in addition to resident trout. Starting the end of July, Spey Lodge offers some of the best Steelhead fishing in the world, which continues into the fall. Some of the best dry-fly steelheading on earth, this lasts until mid-November. The target species and the rivers fished vary from month to month, but the techniques stay relatively the same. Swinging wet flies with floating lines and light wet-tips is most effective. You can also skate dry flies to large steelhead, catching fish on the surface that can easily exceed 20 pounds! For those who are interested, the benefits of spey casting are taught and encouraged by the experienced guides to guests of all skill levels.

Spey Lodge, of course, specializes in the use of Spey rods (two handed fly rods). A single-handed eight-weight rod will work just fine most of the time, but with the Salmon often exceeding thirty pounds and the Steelhead sometimes exceeding twenty pounds the risk of being under gunned is always there. The Spey rod balances the odds in your favor; slightly, but on occasion even a 15 foot 9 weight seems small. A Salmon or Steelhead making a 15-foot rod seem small is reality at Spey Lodge.

Spey Lodge will provide you with on the water lessons in all aspects of Spey Casting. Lessons in casting (Spey or Single) are part of the all-inclusive package.
