The Dean River in British Columbia is the ultimate destination for any anadromous fly fisher. And for good reason with the world's hottest, freshest salmon and steelhead in a wilderness setting, the Dean offers visitors unrivaled natural beauty.


Our lodge sits nestled in the trees, perched above the turquoise waters of Kimsquit Bay. Sweeping views of glaciated, snow-capped mountains rising high above the salt chuck Dean Channel and Grantham Falls are our nearest neighbors. We are perfectly positioned to target the river's silver-bright fish in their most impressive condition: close to the sea, in the lower river, and below the turbid white water of the Dean Canyon.
