September 26th 2013 This year Malcolm Granberry celebrated
his 80th birthday and as a birthday present his four sons
brought him on a fishing trip to Kalum River Lodge. One of
Malcolm's grandsons was able to join them too, so we had the
pleasure of hosting three generations of the Granberrys at
the lodge. The guys fly fished the Kitimat and Skeena rivers
and landed large Coho and Steelhead. We really enjoyed our
few days with the guys and it was great to be part of such a
September 20th 2013 Over the last week we have had the
pleasure of hosting two groups of anglers from the UK. Good
fishing friends Tony and Andy joined us for the first time and
we hope it won't be the last. Between them they caught Coho
and Pink salmon, and Steelhead. On the last day Tony landed
two super Coho (top left photo) one of which fed everyone at
the lodge that evening! Fishing buddies Big Dave, Little Dave
and Robin had a fun week fishing the Skeena and Kalum rivers.
They also went on a day's adventure to a remote wilderness
river where they hiked into small pools and caught Steelhead,
Coho and trout. Thank you all!
September 17th 2013 This time of the season offers the most
variety of rivers to fish. Our guests this week, Phil, Chris
and Chris from the US, fished the Skeena and remote wilderness
rivers for Steelhead and Coho salmon. Here are the guys with
some of their fish.
September 13th 2013 "Girls just want to have fun!" and Karen
certainly did when she hooked and landed this superb Steelhead
from the Skeena river on a fly rod. Karen, a keen fly angler
back home in Maryland, came to fish with us for a few days.
She also had Coho and Pink salmon. Our other guests at the
lodge, four friends from Nova Scotia and the Yukon, enjoyed
the sunny weather whilst landing Steelhead and Coho.
September 8th 2013 We have had a great week with a group of
fly anglers from the UK. The weather here remains sunny and
hot but it didn't stop the guys landing some good Steelhead
3rd 2013 The fishing on the Skeena river has been great. With
good runs of Steelhead and salmon our guests have been landing
some super fish. For the last three days Andrew Rushton has
been out fishing with Collins Illich from Dallas, Texas, who
organised a family trip with his father, brother and
brother-in-law. The guys had a great holiday relaxing on the
banks of the Skeena, enjoying the warm weather and fly fishing
for Steelhead and salmon. Here are some of the fish they
brought to the bank.
31st 2013 We have had a super week with our returning guests,
Martin and Andy, from England. They joined us last summer for
their first trip to BC and enjoyed it so much they had to come
back! They both had some good Coho and Pink salmon, as well as
several Steelhead. Andy was top rod for the week after landing
a superb Steelhead that topped 25lb. Ted DeJong, our assistant
guide, helped Andy hold the fish for the photos. Martin caught
the largest Coho of the trip, a fish of around 18lb. They were
joined by Nic Jepson who travelled from Norway to fish the
Skeena with us. Nic has fished in BC before and matched his
largest Steelhead whilst out fishing with Andrew Rushton.
