Summer and Fall of 2020

It was not the season anyone had imagined and we really missed all our guests who had planned to join us.

Everyone is rescheduled for next year and we anticipate an action-packed season.

The Kalum River Lodge Team were out and about enjoying the fresh air and some great fishing over the last few months.

Here are just a few snaps of the stunning scenery from our adventures around the area… and of course a few of the fish landed.

25th July 2020

The Skeena opened for fishing on 15th July. Despite some high water we managed to get in some good days. Hooked several Chinook and a few Steelhead.

Missing our guests from abroad and look forward to fishing with them next year.

25th June 2020

Another great day out on the river. There are lots of fresh Chinook around to test your skills!

As the CV-19 restrictions in BC start to ease we are looking forward to getting back on the water with guests. We anticipate that we will be able to take BC residents on guided day trips starting this July.

20th May 2020

We have been out fishing on a few of the local lakes. It is a lot of fun watching the trout chasing a dry fly. With so many lakes to choose from there is always somewhere new to try.

Currently the rivers are high with the snow-melt. We will be out on the rivers again in early June when the fresh Chinook start coming in.

7th April 2020

The spring weather has been amazing here for the last few weeks. With sunny blue sky days our guides have been out on the rivers, where better to practice self-distancing?

The fishing has been good but we are missing our guests who are usually fishing with us now. We are looking forward towards the summer season and getting our guests back out on the rivers that they all love.   We will be waiting and so will the fish.

Winter Scenes on the Kalum River

A few winter photos taken of the Kalum River yesterday (30th January 2020)

The Kalum River is a beautiful river settled amongst stunning scenery. It is home to some of the largest Steelhead and Salmon around.  It also has good runs of Coho Salmon and resident populations of  Dolly Varden and trout.  Our guests enjoy some great fishing days on this spectacular river in the spring, summer and fall.

As 2019 comes to an end, it is time to start thinking about your 2020 fishing holiday!

The Skeena River has a reputation for being the best Steelhead and salmon sports fishing river in the world. Every year anglers from all over the world come to test their skills against these amazing fish.

Our guided fishing season begins late March and goes through to late October.

So whether you prefer fishing for spring Steelhead,  record-breaking Chinook in July or lively summer run salmon and Steelhead throughout August and September, we have it all!

Don’t just dream about going on a fishing adventure……

Contact us today to book your trip!

Another season comes to end……

Can’t believe that our 2019 season is over already!  “Time flies when you are having fun”.

A huge thank you to all our guests and all the great memories you leave us with.

We are already looking forward to the start of our 2020 season – chasing spring run Steelhead in the wild rivers of BC.

16th October 2019

The last week of our guiding season for 2019 was a fun time. Thanks to our guests who worked hard on the rivers and caught some great fish. As one of our guests said “the rewards are worth every cast”.

6th October 2019

Autumn is upon us. Cooler mornings and sunny days. The stunning autumn colours make the perfect backdrop for everyone’s photos.  Steelhead and some huge Coho were landed and many more lost.

29th September 2019

The fishing was a bit tougher this week with heavy rain and muddy water for a couple of days. However, our anglers fished several different rivers and went on a few wilderness adventures. Some nice fish were landed.

18th September 2019

A mix of weather this week but the sun did appear and some fish came to the bank.

Avid trout anglers spent time hiking around on some of the small creeks and caught some super trout.

8th September 2019

Steelhead, Steelhead, Steelhead……

Great catches of Steelhead this week.

1st September 2019

Lots of familiar faces this week as our regular group arrived at the lodge. We just can’t stop these guys coming back every year!

The Skeena got better as the week went on and fishing picked up. Numerous Steelhead caught and some good sized Coho too.

26th August 2019

Another fun week with the Hyde Boat group.

Despite a lot of rain and high water, the group still managed to land some really nice fish.

A big thank you to the Hyde family and all their guests for joining us again this year.

19th August 2019

Another fun week with many familiar faces. Big thanks to everyone for making such a fun week.

Steelhead season is now fully underway and there are salmon in the rivers too.

First time guest John had a brilliant week landing his first Steelhead and a lot of salmon too!

11th August 2019

The Kitimat has been fishing well again this week and our anglers have had some great catches.

Thank you to everyone for making it such a great week.

4th August 2019

A great group of anglers from Sportsquest this week.

The guys didn’t waste any time hooking into monster Chum salmon on the Kitimat.  A few close to 30lb landed and many more lost! Well done to Jeremy on landing a Chinook over 40lb!

We look forward to seeing you again next year!

29th July 2019

It has been a busy two weeks at the lodge with many returning guests and first time anglers joining us.

Our anglers have been having a blast fishing the Kitimat. With good runs of Pink and Chum salmon everyone has been catching a lot of fish.

There are some big Chum again this year that give you an incredible fight on the fly rod.

Congratulations to Ivie for landing his first Steelhead!!

20th July 2019

We have had a mixed bag of weather over the last couple of weeks. Hot sunny blue sky days became cooler and rainy, but the fishing was good.

Regular guest Kermit spent some time fishing with us this spring and he is back fishing with us again. He landed a nice Chinook the other day.

The Chum and Pink salmon are now heading up the rivers so our anglers next week should see some good action.

7th July 2019

A great first week of the season!  Our guests were out fishing the Kitimat and Skeena. New to Spey casting, Fabian hooked several large Chinook and brought a whopper to the bank. It was a fun week.

Join us this summer!!

We have a prime place now available for the week of 25th August to 1st September

This is a great opportunity to come to fish some of the best salmon and Steelhead rivers in the world.

During August there are all 5 species of Pacific salmon and Steelhead in the rivers making a day out on the river action packed.

9th May 2019

Our spring guiding season ended with a great few days with father and son team, Ted and Nate.  The guys fished the Kitimat and Kalum for the first three days and hooked into several Steelhead which did not make it to the bank. On the last day Nate landed three Steelhead! It just goes to show practice makes perfect!!

April 25th 2019

Sunny spring weather, stunning scenery and Steelhead – the perfect combination!

Returning guests Jon and Jeff had some good fishing. They spent a few days at our wilderness camp, and enjoyed hiking and fishing the remote rivers.

April 21st 2019

First time Steelhead fishers Doug and Jan got their skills tested this week on some powerful spring fish. As well as Steelhead there were some nice trout landed.
We look forward to their next trip and showing them some more great fishing!

April 15th 2019

A change in the weather this week with a few cloudy damp days. This got the rivers rising and the fish moving in, and provided some super Steelhead action for our guests with several hook ups a day with feisty spring Steelhead.

April 10th 2019

With the warmer spring temperatures and good fishing action, it is easy to understand why many anglers join us at this time of the year. Our guests have been out on the Kitimat river which has been fishing well for Steelhead and trout.

Marina’s first day out with guide Jake turned into a great one after she landed this super Steelhead. Marina left with some great memories and she said she will be back again.

April 7th 2019

It has been a fun first week of the spring season. Despite the frosty mornings, the days have been really sunny and warm.

After a long winter tying flies, our guests and guides were enjoying being back out on the river. Testing out different fly patterns the guys hooked into some strong spring Steelhead.

Spring Season Starts!

Our spring season kicks off today with blue skies and warm temps.

The snow is retreating fast and it looks as though winter is over for another year.

Here we are getting ready to go fishing this morning, not sure if we have enough flies for the day!!

Welcome to 2019!

After a great Steelhead season last year we are excited for the 2019 season.

Our season starts late March so it won’t be long until we are back on the water.

Kalum River Lodge guides have been out winter Steelhead fishing and are having great success.

Looking forward to the Denver Fly Fishing Show starting on January 4th. If you are in the area, be sure to stop in and say Hello!
