Our bucket list included a fishing trip at a PNW fishing lodge. We chose this one based on online reviews and the staff did not disappoint. The expert fishing guides knew where to go what to do and delivered beautiful fish. The processing system was impressive - right from the weigh in, the photo ops, the filleting, and the packaging and freezing. The staff were incredibly hospitable and accommodating - right down to providing off time meals when we were hungry. Though I am not sure why we should have been hungry since they provide a hearty delicious breakfast, a sandwich bar with apples and treats to pack for the boat trip, a hot dock side mid afternoon snack (try chili or chowder or Mac and Cheese) and an incredible three course dinner. The bar is well stocked and the wine very reasonably price - many delicious Okanagan varietals.
Can not rave enough about this experience.
Just left this beautiful property on a float plan after a four night stay with our 18 year old grandson for his high school graduation gift. My husband who has been fishing for 60 years all over the world says it’s the best fishing trip of his entire life ... he’s never caught so many fish in three days. In fact we caught our limit for our stay and LOVED every minute. The staff, food, luxury beds & linens, wine & cocktails are five star ~ our guide Jeff knew the best spots, managed the boat completely and was so generous with his knowledge & expertise ... we played the best tunes while catching, saw whales breaching, dolphins and bald eagles ... then chef Jimmy & Benny met us at the dock with mid-aft lunch like chowder one day, quesadillas & margaritas another, followed by outstanding four course dinner that eve. We so enjoyed dedicated manager Samantha along with staff Katie & Emily. Thank you, owners Dan and Jeff for creating this five star fishing resort. We are going back 2020.
