The Pitt River Lodge is British Columbia's Premier Fly and Spey fishing destination. The sheer diversity of our fish species and abundance is why America Angler Magazine rated the Pitt River as one of the top two, Fishing in Canada, rivers. Our specialty is fly fishing for silvers (coho), sockeye, pink salmon, chum, steel head and five different trout species.
Our unique river feeds into one of the only two freshwater tidal lakes in the world and being only 40 miles from the ocean our salmon come in bright and powerful for incredible acrobatic performances. We also do Fraser River fishing trips for ancient sturgeon and have some of the most knowledgeable fishing guides for this fabled sea monster. When hooked it will give you a memory you will never forget!
Along a wilderness road that winds its way along the river through the Pitt River Valley lies Pitt River Lodge. It is nestled at the north end of British Columbia's spectacular Pitt Lake, the largest freshwater tidal lake in North America. Far from the maddening crowd, this isolated and remote location is surrounded by the forests of three parks, Garibaldi, Golden Ears and Pine Cone Burke. The Pacific Coastal Mountain Range isolates and protects all that live in this secluded valley bottom and our location beside this glacier fed river enables us to be the closest true wilderness fishing lodge to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Due in fact to our secluded location with no roads and being boat and air access only we are surrounded by phenomenal catch and release fishing which is our specialty.
Our guided raft trips are the foundation of our fly fishing program and our team of dedicated guides are waiting to take you on an unforgettable river journey. High tide pushes fresh salmon and sea run bull trout up the Fraser River across Pitt Lake and into 40 km of what is known as the upper Pitt River.
Our team of guides are all experienced in the fine art of spey fishing and would love to help you improve your skills.
