Designed for complete beginners and experienced fly fishermen alike, this hosted Kalum River Lodge trip with our Sportquest Holidays host is perfect for either single anglers or small groups of friends. Enjoy the benefit of having a fully qualified host with you at all times as well as enjoying privacy and comfort with private single rooms. On top of this, if you are a single angler there are not additional single angler supplements.
Our lodges are located near Terrace in British Columbia, Canada. They are in the heart of some of the finest waters in the world. The original lodge called Kalum River Lodge is on the banks of the Kalum River, this Lodge is now the owner’s accommodation and used if we have additional private parties. However, to meet the high demand of the destination another lodge has been built. The new accommodation is called the Wild River Lodge. This accommodation is located right on the banks of the Skeena River and boasts stunning views of the world renowned river and the surrounding mountains. With both the lodges’ perfect location, you spend more time fishing and less time travelling.
Fishing in Canada will give you the opportunity to catch world record fish. One of the rivers you will fish is the Skeena River which is considered by many to be the best Steelhead and Salmon fishing in the world. The Skeena watershed holds the world record for both Steelhead on the fly and with conventional tackle. As well as having the world’s largest run of wild Steelhead, the Skeena also holds 2 world records for King Salmon.
The fishing season begins in April and goes through to early November. The spring season brings fresh runs of Steelhead, trout and early Chinook salmon into the rivers. This is a great time for fly fishermen to experience fishing on a variety of rivers. Fly fishing throughout the summer season is an action-packed time. The chance of catching Steelhead and all five species of salmon during your trip is an amazing experience and brings many of our anglers back year after year. By early September the tributaries are filling up with Coho (Silver Salmon) and Steelhead providing excellent fishing as well as incredible wilderness scenery.
We also have exclusive access points to both the upper and lower Kalum River. Combined with this you will also fish the delightful Kitimat River, Nass River and its tributaries which provides everyone with the chance to battle with monster Kings and tackle-busting Chum Salmon.
With any fishing trip, your fishing guide is the key to success. With years of experience guiding customers, our guides can advise and fine tune your fishing to vastly improve your catch rates. All our guides are well versed in all methods of fishing and will do their best to optimise your fishing opportunities. Our guides take pride in the personalised service we provide and are there to assist you with anything they need to make your holiday the best it can be. Fishing is normally based on 2 or 3 anglers per professional guide.
Although fishing is the main activity, there other things to do should you wish to take some time off from fishing or bring along your non-fishing partner. Apart from all the stunning scenery and wildlife the nearby town of Terrace offers lots of opportunities to explore local arts, historical culture, visit several national parks, rock climbing, rafting, horse riding and there are lots of local shops/markets.
