British Columbia's Dean River Chinook Salmon are in a league of their own. These Dean River heavyweights enter the freshwater speckled in sea lice and are only minutes from the ocean. Known for their unstoppable runs and ability to leave even the most seasoned angler in awe of their power, Dean River Chinooks demand respect. This is undeniably the best freshwater Chinook Salmon fly fishing in British Columbia!
The Chinook season begins mid-June and fishes strong until mid-July, while the Coho fishery is most productive from August until mid-September.
The Dean River is one of the only places on Earth where an angler can land a trophy fish while surrounded by waterfalls, epic mountains and emerald blue water...all while only minutes from the ocean!
With no roads connecting to the outside world, clients arrive by float-plane and quickly settle into our breath-taking lodge overlooking the majestic Pacific Ocean (only a ten minute drive from the Dean River!)
There are two sections of the Dean; above the canyon and below the canyon.
Our trips run below the canyon, beginning directly where the freshwater meets the saltwater, and ending four and a half kilometers upriver where the deadly Dean River canyon acts as a barrier. This close proximity to the ocean guarantees fresh and ghost-like fish...with mirror-like scales and transparent fins.
These Salmon are undeniably the strongest and freshest found in any river along the coast of BC.
We use a jet boat to place anglers on productive runs and two guides are supplied for six anglers. Fly out trips for salmon, rainbow trout, and cutthroat may also be arranged during your stay.
This is the trip of a lifetime and is a must for those looking to experience a guided fly fishing adventure like none other at one of the most reputable and longstanding fly fishing lodges in the wilderness of British Columbia.
