For those of you who have fished this area with us for many years, you will  have known about Yellow Cedar Lodge and perhaps even stayed there.  This will be now be their permenant home and they can make it their own. Yellow Cedar Lodge is perfectly located to access all the rivers in this area as it is only 15 minutes drive west of Terrace with its garden running down to the Skeena. From here the Kalum is only a few minutes along the road along with numeorus other tributaries.

Yellow Cedar Lodge is also equipped with a hot tub to help chase that chill when you’re back after a long, cold day on the water, a fully furnished games room including a TV, bar, and pool table, an incredible outdoor patio for those warm summer nights when you can’t resist having that drink outside, a spacious dry room for storing your rods and hanging your waders, and an infrared sauna. There’s even a gym for those that still require exercise after a long day on the water.

Nicholas Dean has one of the longest fishing seasons of any lodge in North America. With over 54 rivers, lakes and salt water estuary destinations the guides have the unique ability to plan a different experience daily. From long line casts and big water on the Skeena River, to small gin clear streams, sight casting to Steelhead and coho, or skating a dry fly across a coastal river pool.

They also offer different modes of access from rafting, drift boat, hiking, jet boat or helicopter. Even when bad weather makes fishing conditions tricky in one area, you will simply be moved to another watershed.
