Fly Fishing Canada
If you were to use only one word to describe the fly fishing in Canada, that word would definitely be “variety.” From the legendary steelhead waters of British Columbia to the trout-rich rivers of Alberta to the pike-filled lakes of Saskatchewan, finding a Canada fly fishing lodge to exceed your highest expectations is effortless. Serious and slightly more experienced anglers may be interested in the challenge of wild steelhead in British Columbia – home to the world’s most famous steelhead rivers and the largest trophy sea-run rainbows on the planet. While rarely a “numbers” game, the satisfaction of hooking, fighting and landing even a single wild and pure-strain anadromous fish ranks at the very top of the list of great angling accomplishments. During the summer months, the waters of Western Canada and the trout rivers of British Columbia and Alberta are celebrated for a number of reasons, including above-average fish sizes, healthy wild trout, a strong diversity of species, consistent dry fly fishing, and incredible hatches. Combined with exceptional scenery and a total lack of crowds, this is one of the finest trout fisheries found anywhere in North America. For adventurous anglers looking for trophy Northern Pike, the lakes of Saskatchewan attract anglers from all over the world with vast populations of pike, lake trout, Arctic grayling and walleye. A trip to the wilds of Saskatchewan is a true wilderness adventure, with spectacular vistas, impressive wildlife viewing, and some of the finest freshwater fishing action found anywhere.

British Columbia Fly Fishing Lodges
Ideally situated in the rugged coastal mountains near Terrace, British Columbia, the mighty Skeena River and its tributaries form the major arteries that fork through stands of old growth forest and steep valley walls. It is in this river system that some of the strongest runs of large, wild steelhead and salmon left in the world return each season
Strategically situated on the banks of the Skeena River, Spey Lodge offers steelhead fishing trips to the unlimited availability of fly-friendly waters of the lower Skeena watershed. Further to the north lies Spey Lodge’s sister operation Boundary Lodge, a slightly smaller lodge built on the banks of the Bell-Irving River.
