To be able to go someplace relatively close and be able to see Mother Nature's at its best is truly a special spot. We witnessed a mother bear with 3 cubs eating salmon on the beach. Then the three cubs climbed a tree while Mama Bear sat close by watching. We were a mere 100 yards away Spey Rod Fishing for fresh Coho Salmon. Scenes like this played out all day long.
Oh yeah, the fishing was terrific too! Fly, Spey, Spin and drift fishing are all available along this river. Too much fun and wasn't thinking about much except how I was going to present my next cast into the pool I was exploring. So talk about getting away from it all.
The lodge is very comfortable, clean and new! Full on fishing equipment was available if you don't have the right fishing gear. Terrific home made meals and snacks, satellite TV, Wifi , hot showers and a place to keep your beer cold were all there. If you're looking to see and experience the best mother nature has to offer I'd highly recommend the Cowichan River Lodge. Kit and Kenzie will make you feel at home. So laid back and hospitable that you won't believe that you didn't know them longer. Well done and look forward to my next visit.
