    Overall rating:

    This is a particularly difficult trip to rate or comment scrupulously fair on.The 'hype' on the Skeena and Kalum Rivers is so broadly broadcast, one expects the trip to compare perhaps even with Bristol Bay and/or Villa Maria. Whilst I do not doubt the presence/existence of the leviathan Steelheads and Salmon having seen numerous photographs of them over the years we did not see anything of size other than the few Chinook approaching and having reached the end of their time. The carcasses on the River banks were adequate testament to the numbers of fish in the Skeena system.
    The scenery was spectacular and the Rivers majestic - however with the lowest water recorded for many years and the highest temperatures it was fairly clear that fly-fishing would be extremely difficult. The fish (all species?) were almost glued to the bottom and fishing hard for up to 8 hours a day for three of our days - without a touch - proved to be particularly discouraging. The guides were extremely knowledgeable and helpful but could do little to put us on to fish that simply were not moving or there in abundance.

    Andrew and Deanna were exemplary hosts and did their utmost to make us feel at home.
    The food was first class and we were well looked after. As stated in the beginning of this piece of feedback, I have found it very difficult to write in a way that would give a true reflection of the Kalum Lodge Adventure. I have, for example rated the fishing as 'adequate' whilst in effect it was poor - accepting perhaps that this was attributable to the poor weather during our stay.
    I trust this 'report' will be read in the spirit in which it is intended.

    • Peter Collingsworth says:

      David, thanks for a very fair report, there is nothing more annoying than very bad weather conditions for fishing, you go in peak times and then as you quite rightly said with the lowest water levels and high temperatures for many many years means that you have a huge challenge to try and catch anything. You quite correctly pointed out the fishing on these rivers is world famous and it would be great to have you all back another year so you can see the rivers true potential. Although we can not control the weather I do like all customers to have a good time so I will sort you out all a deal on your next trip. Kind Regards Peter

    Overall rating:

    Andrew and Deana are great. Weather was bad low water for the time of year. But that is the game so they say. We fished one spot for two days. They say the fish move so we needn't. In the nicest way, Andrew is a bit crazy. We got on well and will keep in touch with them and still have in finished business with the Steelheads!

    • Peter Collingsworth says:

      David, thanks for travelling with us again and thanks for the feedback. I am so sorry that the water levels for the three of you were so so low. As you know the river was not in the right conditions for fishing, this did not just effect our lodge but the whole watershed. As you said you have unfinished business so we need to get you boys back out there again soon.


		
				
		
  • Mr Hayes says:
    Overall rating:

    Everything was fantastic, loved the fishing only had one mess up on the way back. I had to pay for my transfer from lodge to airport (Taxi) apart from that you have to check this place out.

    • Peter Collingsworth says:

      Robert, glad you enjoyed the trip the fishing is great when the water levels are normal. I am sorry about the transfer, we have sent you a cheque to reimburse you for this. Have no idea why that happened as it has never happened before. Some miss communication between the taxi and the lodge I think. However glad it all got sorted and it did not distract from the total trip. See you again soon regards Peter

    10 out 10 I had a great trip so a huge thank you to you and all your staff, plus Andrew at the lodge as they were amazing hosts providing top class fishing and food. Love to come back someday.

    • Peter Collingsworth says:

      Hi David, thanks for all the great feedback I will surely pass on these comments to our lodge and staff, its so nice for us and them as everyone does work hard to make sure you receive the holiday of a lifetime. Regards Peter
