FACILITIES & AMENITIES

FOR YOUR SPEY CASTING WEEK

This is one of the few lodges in Terrace located within steps of the Skeena River. Some of the jetboats are right at the front door, no driving to the river at this location, just wake up and wade out! Guests enjoy cozy A-frame chalet cabins with private baths, so no sharing, and the lodge limits its capacity to only six guests per week, making for a warm atmosphere among friends. The lodge is located about 20 minutes driving time from the Terrace airport and within easy access to Terrace’s town centre. Delicious food, warm hospitality, private rooms and great fishing combine perfectly to make this a perfect package. Got specific questions about the lodge, please contact us, we’re happy to answer any questions you have!

MORE ABOUT THE WEEK

FROM OUR CREW

This trip really came together with Tim Arsenault and Brian Niska in the Spring of 2013. Brian had been setting up his operation on the Skeena River and Tim had just placed in the top 10 in the world at Spey-O-Rama. With the increasing popularity of spey casting and a cool Spring time fishery happening on the Skeena system, we thought we’d introduce the two. Each year we’ve had a small group of anglers of all abilities come hone their skills. Dates haven’t been set this year, but if you have interest let us know and if we can gather enough people for the week we’ll make arrangements for this annual good time!

“We had great communication during booking and before the trip, pick up right on time, top notch equipment, and guides who obviously knew the river for winter steelhead. They provided excellent instruction and advice and were both very professional and friendly. Highly recommend a trip with Chromer, first class outfit all around!”

A WEEK OF FISHING

WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR SPEY CASTING COURSE WITH US

Canada’s top casting instructors are all yours for this exclusive week. If you’re looking for the perfect mix of personalized casting instruction with guided fishing then really is the ultimate trip. You’ll be with two of Canada’s most sought after spey casting instructors, Tim Arsenault and Brian Niska. Tim is an incredibly well-respected casting instructor and one of the funnest guys you’d ever want to spend a week fishing with. His casting proficiency has landed him in the Spey-O-Rama world distance casting competition in San Francisco several times and you’ll be sure to gain from his easy going instructing style. Brian is one of the most recognized spey casting instructors in the world. He has built a reputation of being the premier Skagit casting guru and has helped develop several lines and rods.
This isn’t  a trip where you’re casting on the back lawn. We’ll be on the water everyday, fishing a variety of rivers around the lodge. The Skeena River is the main drainage for northern British Columbia and one of the last strongholds for wild fish anywhere in the world. The Skeena and its tributaries are home to tens of a thousands or return steelhead and millions of returning salmon. In past years anglers on our Spey Improvement Week have enjoyed fishing the Skeena, Kalum and Kitimat rivers. Starting in mid April through to mid May there is a run of ocean fresh steelhead that move into the lower sections of the Skeena and Kalum rivers. For anglers looking at a new experience and chrome bright fish this time of year can be very interesting as fishing pressure is at a minimum and the fish that are being caught are bright and bitey, if you show them a fly they’re more than willing to take a go at it. If you’re looking for a fresh adventure then Spring steelhead fishing on the Skeena and its lower tributaries is a great option.
These Spring steelhead are aggressive, often chasing a swung fly clear across a run. They are bright, translucent finned beauties that are truly stunning and often pull much harder than fish arriving later in the year. Although steelhead fishing in May on the Kalum may not produce the numbers like in the Fall season, the quality of fish is unsurpassed, wild specimens fresh off open ocean! Steelhead fishing on the Kalum River starts in late March and continues to be consistent through mid May. Big chinook salmon start moving into the Kalum River starting in early May. Our mid May week for this spey improvement trip is right smack in the middle of prime Kalum River chinook fishing and also gives you a great chance at fresh chrome Skeena steelhead.
