2015 spring/summer pictures

I know I'm very bad at updating this blog, my apologies. 

Well we survived the heat wave of 2015. Not often is the north coast of British Columbia on fire watch, but it was this year. Now we're enjoying cool/wet weather at the start of our summer Steelhead season, and we're very happy for it!

 Enjoy the pictures. Wally @ Spey Lodge Inc.

 Thank you to all our Spring and Summer guests. I'll try to add some summer Steelhead pic in early fall, but no promises.

My very best,

Summer pictures

After receiving a lot of heat from people that follow this blog I thought I better post some new pictures at the very least! We're mid way through the Boundary season with an eye on the upcoming Haida Gwaii Fall program.

Hope to see you all knee deep in Steelhead water.

Summer season begins

What a spring, it really doesn't get any better, nice weather, good water conditions and a very healthy supply of Steelhead. I can only hope the summer is as kind as the spring was. The Chinook (King) Salmon are inbound and the water conditions are setting up for a great start to the summer.

Below is a few more spring pictures.

Quick Spring update from Spey

Apologies as I don't have much time for a lengthy blog entry, time is short as I'm in the middle of the spring Steelhead season. Here's a quick collection of pictures from the early spring, enjoy.
