Spring Steelhead at the Spey lodge

In the spring of 2019 we will be going back to Spey Lodge in Terrace B.C. for a fun filled week of chasing chrome steelhead straight from the salt. This is by far one of our favorite trips of the year. We have been going to Spey Lodge since the spring of 2011 and have had the chance to sample the lower Skeena River and her tribs, plus a few other coastal river valleys close by and believe it’s the best spring steelhead fishery in the world. 

The key to finding steelhead is being able to adapt to the conditions you’re given at any time and place. Walter Faetz the owner of Spey Lodge is the best we’ve ever seen at finding steelhead, it also doesn’t hurt that he has a heck of a lot of rivers to choose from to find them. From a couple sips of coffee down the road to a quick flight in a helicopter to a river where you probably won’t see another human footprint, they are all options for our week at Spey Lodge. The accommodations are very comfortable. There are six bedrooms, each having its own bathroom and a large family room to gather after a day’s fishing to have a drink and hors d’oeuvres. The cuisine at Spey Lodge is incredible, this has everything to do with Chef Molly, her cooking is five-star. Being an hour’s drive from the saltwater has its advantages when it comes to meal planning and fresh seafood. Needless to say crab, halibut and prawns strait from Douglas channel are usually on the menu. 

The guide staff at Spey Lodge is always top notch. These guys work for one of the most successful lodges on the lower Skeena so they are on there “A” game every day. Brian Styskal will be there to help you out when your casting develops a glitch.  We will also cover customizing lines to meet your needs, fishing with a balanced set up and pretty much everything that has to do with steelhead fishing including tying flies in the evening for the next day’s fishing. If you’re a beginner to spey fishing and steelhead this week will take years off the learning curve. Our goal is to give you tools you can use to fish for steelhead on your home rivers or anywhere in the world and be successful.
