Every aspect of Skeena Spey Riverside Lodge is top notch service, friendly staff, knoledgable guides, great food, nice cabins, fishing is 100 ft walk to the jetboats. The atmosphere is "we are all friends and family" betwen guests and staff. They make you feel welcome and sets an at mood the makes a very enteraining evening at the guests shared dining tables. It just makes you relaxed. After seven hours of speycasting the food is the great reward. Just outstanding!
This was our second visit with the wonderful folks at Skeena Spey Lodge. The cabins are roomy and very comfortable. The guides and lodge staff are warm, friendly and just awesome people. You immediately feel that you are part of their family. Dominic the chef prepares wonderful meals. We had a very enjoyable time and look forward to returning.
The layout, the ambience, the convenience, the experience, the food, the quality of the rooms - everything was oip notch, and the friendliness and easy going demeanor of the staff took it over the top... We can't wait to return.
This is a special place that merits your consideration if you are interested in fly fishing. The Steelhead fishing is the main prize you are wanting, but there are many "lesser" fish you will enjoy catching. There are people from all over the world here seeking to cross that one (a Steelhead) off their bucket list. Sadly, they are elusive and very hard to catch on a fly! We did get two on a spinner, and they are great fun to land! It is a tough fighting fish that is a pleasure to catch and release--as is done with all fish caught. The day is 8 hours long and the wading can be challenging with the rocks and current. The sun can be a challenge. Be certain to have full face protection and gloves! The food is really excellent for breakfast and dinner. Lunch is on the shore or boats and is a decent box lunch. The lodge serves liquor in camp, but not on the water--which is smart. Drinking on the river is far too dangerous! The sleeping cabins are spartan, but comfortable. The single beds are a little too small for those used to a king sized bed, but you adjust. The lodge provides all the gear. That makes packing to get here far easier. Waders are critical for fishing in the cold water, but some seem to do well without them. All trips on the river are with experienced guides. They are well versed and friendly. They are excellent fly fishers! Getting here is not easy. There are a minimum of two flights from just about anywhere. Getting to Vancouver is the easy part, but finding a flight to Terrance is far more challenging. You will have to stay overnight in a hotel prior to being picked up at a local hotel or the airport if you get the early flight. BE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN TO CHECK THE SMALL PLANE FLIGHT ONTIME RECORD PRIOR TO BOOKING--some are far better than others. The countryside is absolutely beautiful. That attached pictures do not do it justice because it is a 360 view on every cast!…
Skeena Spey was the perfect choice for my first experience with Pacific Northwest fishing. My guides taught me how to fish with a spey rod and they coached me expertly so that I was able to enjoy the experience to the fullest. I learned a lot and I now understand the attraction and the beauty of fishing great rivers like the Skeena. The fish are magnificent. The lodge is superbly managed. The guides are superb. The cabins are superbly comfortable. The meals are superb and beautifully presented. It is clear that everyone on the staff enjoys being there. It is equally clear that they are personally dedicated to providing the best service. Everything about the place is professionally designed and executed. My wife, who is not an angler, enjoyed the experience as much as I did. There are plenty of attractions in and near Terrace, BC, such as art museums and galleries. When traveling we always try to balance the trip so that we both enjoy the experience equally. That balance was easy to achieve at Skeena Spey. We both had a great time.…
Had an absolute blast here once again. All the staff is friendly and go above and beyond day in and day out. The food is out of this world and the runs are as fishy as they can’t get. Can’t wait until next year!
This was my second trip to Skeena Spey. The accommodations are great with great common areas for hanging out and chatting and great privacy in individual A-frames. The food is great. The guides are great, and the scenery is outstanding. I want to go in 2023; please don't book before I get my slot nailed down. Brian Niska is exceptionally helpful. My age is beginning to show a bit, and things got done without ever making me feel patronized. Always get your Caesar with two shots; it's the only way to fly.
One of the best fishing operations on the planet. They exceeded my expectations in every aspect of my stay. The lodge atmosphere is quite comfortable and welcoming. The staff is family oriented, and you really do feel like home and part of the family during your stay. Excellent, instruction oriented guides operating boats of the highest quality make sure your time on the water is efficient, comfortable, and memorable. The fish are a bonus. Lodge staff and elite management team make sure your goals and expectations for your trip are satisfied.
I stayed for a three days fishing and had a great time. The lodge is beautiful, the staff great, food amazing, site is gorgeous facing the Skeena river. The best client experience for a fishing trip. Everything was perfect. Thanks to Brian and his team !!
I really can’t say enough good things about my stay at Skeena Spey lodge but here goes! I had contacted Brian late on in 2020 and with everything that had gone before (covid) he was able to accommodate me no problem! I flew up from Vancouver and was met at the airport by Brian. The flexibility of the accommodation and angling options is unlike anywhere else and what made this a special trip. Along with that my flight home was cancelled and it was worked out on the spot and I even got a few extra hours fishing the next morning! Combine that with the food, hospitality and guiding and you have a winning combination. Nobody wants to leave the riverbank when fishing the Skeena but when you’re met with rustic hearty food it softens the blow! Last but not the least the guides! My first full day of fishing this watershed I caught my first steelhead, one I’ll not forget any time soon! After the fishing the sense of camaraderie at the lodge was brilliant. Amazing lodge, food, fishing and most importantly knowledgeable, friendly people that not only want the best for their patrons but for river on which they reside…
