Scott’s Fishing Notes 2022

Once again, the fishing at the lodge was incredibly hot once the runs of salmon made their way down Fitz Hugh Sound to Rivers Inlet. The Wall, the Dome, Cranston Point all produced daily and this made for some great, “close to home” fishing where guests did not have to travel long distances to get to the fishing grounds. [...]

Thank You to Our Guides and Staff

Our new guides were under the tutelage of Scott S. & he did a great job. Guests often ask if he'll be guiding in the upcoming season because they enjoy him so much. Here is what Scott had to say at the end of the 2022 fishing season. [...]

September 2022 Lodge Update

The Sportsman’s Club is ready for 2023 & trip bookings are coming in daily so please contact us now to secure your dates… Yes, the 2022 season has ended with lots of fish being boxed & flown out to places far & near.  The coho/silvers showed up in great numbers, as did the halibut.  The Chinook/kings were not as huge as usual, but the 40 pounder in the photo was an exciting catch.  We had several very large halibut with one in the photo measuring just an inch below the DFO limit for catch retention.

Fishing Update August 2022

The Roth family arrived at the lodge on a 4-day trip ready to fish for salmon for the first time! Matt and his 2 sons, Jake and Vince, had no experience fishing in the ocean. Their positive vibes and good energy were evident from the time they arrived until their departure from the Sportsman's Club. [...]

July clippings from the Sportsman’s Club

It's been quite an adventure re-opening the Sportsman's Club after 34 months. In September 2019, our last guests of the season left with many expecting to be fishing with us again in 2020. As we all know this was not to be... Excitedly, we have been able once again to start greeting our returning & new guests. The crew worked hard for a long rig-up of seven weeks instead of the usual two. [...]

A Trip To Rivers Inlet – Summer 2021

After our recent trip into the lodge to do repairs & maintenance, we are more excited than ever for getting the lodge back up & running in summer 2022. My wife Stephanie & I left our home in Pemberton & booked a ferry to Vancouver Island. The first stop was lodge owner (my Mother) Barbara’s house in Victoria for a long overdue visit. We left with some real treasures in the form of a couple of boxes of old photo albums from some of our 38 years of operation. Look for some of those flashback images coming soon! [...]

Summer Is Here!

School’s out and with graduation/prom, Canada Day/July 1st and Independence Day/July 4th behind us, now it really is officially summer! The weather certainly cooperated, maybe too much, with record setting temperatures in British Columbia these past few weeks. We hit an all-time high of 49.6 C/121.8 F in Lytton BC last week & it might have gone higher, but the entire town burned down the next day and the weather station was gone. [...]

Looking Forward to Seeing You in Summer 2022!

More and more we hear that the young folks are so busy that they really don’t have time for their parents and grandparents anymore. Recently we received this message from a parent who spent time at the lodge with his teenage son - just two of them in the boat - here it is: “He & I talked so much about the past, future, history, evolution/natural selection & politics... he is so incredibly [...]
