World class BC fly fishing wilderness adventures await you! With our two full service Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Lodge locations we provide experienced guides and both guided and unguided fly fishing adventures for steelhead, salmon, rainbow trout, and cutthroat trout.

Our lodge at Moose Lake, located near the headwaters of the Blackwater River, Dean River, and Entiako River, is the ideal choice to fly fish for rainbow trout. From here we fly out to many rivers for rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, steelhead and salmon. Moose Lake has been a fly fishing destination for years, with excellent populations of scrappy rainbow trout for exciting angling for those days you choose not to fly out. We float and wade the Blackwater River for dry fly fishing that is great for all ages and skill levels. We fly out to wade and float rivers in Tweedsmuir Park, Kitlope Park, Fiordland Park, and in the Spirit Bear Rain Forest. You may experience trips to a different river each day of your adventure here.

Blackwell’s Dean River Lodge has been known for many years as a great spot to catch Summer Run Steelhead and Chinook Salmon in the Spring and Summer, and Coho Salmon in the Fall. With the lodge located at the mouth of the river flowing into the Dean Channel, the fish are as fresh and bright as chrome, with many still bearing sea lice. The lodge is on the shore of the Dean Channel, and with our float plane moored there we can fly out daily to other great waters in the nearby parks if desired.

From June to October we also guide eco tour, photography, and wildlife viewing adventures. You may see and photograph wolves, black bears, grizzly bears, eagles, mountain goats, moose, deer, spirit bears, osprey, otters, seals, loons and more. As professional outfitters, we have been providing quality wilderness adventures in this remote area for 35 years, our experienced guides will put you where the action is.

Proud to be Orvis Endorsed!

Hand-carved from the wilderness and luminous with decades of wonderful memories, Moose Lake Lodge has it all – fantastic trout, steelhead and salmon fishing, gorgeous scenery, excellent food and comfortable cabins. In fact, it’s hard to imagine a more enjoyable place to fish. The credit goes to John and Mary Lou Blackwell, who’ve created an angling oasis in the wilds of British Columbia. Guests describe the Moose Lake experience as “rustic elegance.” We couldn’t agree more.
