A Guide For Each Two Anglers

Your guide can you expert tips for the right flies, knots, fish behaviors, and casting instructions so if you are not a pro, you can fish like one, if you are a pro; you are going to love the river. 
Your guide pays attention to detail, they keep a handy selection of “hot flies” on board, tasty treats and drinks, as well as taking care to place you in the best position on the river, for a perfect day. You can relax and enjoy the day. 

You Can Choose A Variety of Fly Fishing Experiences:

You can wade all the different pools and ledges with your guide moving you from shelf to shelf.
You can drift fish from our flat-bottom jet sleds. Float the river targeting the shelves that hold our big Rainbows. Once at the end of your drift, the jet motor is used to move upstream for another drift.
On our Fly Fishing Trips experience the drift boat trip as it floats 22 km’s down the Chilko River. This is a beautiful trip to experience the lower end of the river in faster waters. We float the river, stop, wade, and float to the next spot.
On a hot day a float tube on the river is a nice way to spend the day. With full guide support you stop at all the shelves and really work those drop-offs. Head up Chilko Lake on the Double LL, fly fish knee deep in clean blue waters, lunch on a pristine beach, surrounded by majestic mountain peaks and no one for miles.

Recommended Fly Fishing Gear to Bring

We keep quality Orvis fly rods and reels at the lodge for your complimentary use in case you need a backup rod. We also have extra waders and boots, but be sure to request this prior to the trip to make sure we have the right size for you.
For the Chilko River, we recommend a 5-6 weight rod with a good reel, floating line with 100 yards of backing. For Chilko Lake, we recommend a 6-8 weight rod with a 25 foot, type 6-8 sink tip or a full fast sink line. We will send you a detailed list of recommended flies once you’ve reserved your fly fishing trip.
Remember to bring a selection of leaders from 2X – 4X with plenty of tippet material, waders, sunglasses, camera, gloves, rain jacket, a hat and warm clothes, and plenty of sunscreen.

It seems a pleasant dream ago that Joy and I spent one of our holidays of a lifetime with you. The riding, fishing, and weather all combined for a perfect week that we’ve talked about endlessly since our return to a rain-drenched England. We had superb fishing –“awesome” as our guide would say, each time I landed a big trout! Seeing such a tiny bit of British Columbia and all the wildlife it displayed for us at every turn was magic. With fondest regards from us both. Chris and Joy Bradley United Kingdom.
