“Being on the Dean River was the best fishing trip I’ve ever experienced, thank you!”
Travis R – Calgary, Alberta
Chromer has had a lot of strong connections with BC West and the Dean River over the years. We’ve been representing the lodge and booking trips to the Dean since 2007, securing prime dates during the best weeks. Our own Justin Berry guided on the Dean for many years, as did Scott Baker McGarva. Now we have Shane McKay on the Dean, he’s a long time friend of the business and takes extra good care of Chromer guests. We also are lucky to have Kara Knight, lodge manager, as a close friend who’s always happy to give our crew the extra insight to make your Dean Trip extra special!
