Nicholas Dean Lodge is located in northwest British Columbia on the banks of the lower-Skeena watershed just outside the town of Terrace. The Skeena Region of Northwest British Columbia has some of the finest wild Steelhead fishing in the world and Nicholas Dean lodge is ideally located for guided trips on over a dozen different Steelhead rivers directly from the lodge or by helicopter.

The Fishing

Some of the strongest runs of large, wild steelhead and salmon left in the world return to one river and its tributaries - the Skeena. On the Skeena, Steelhead average 8 to 15 lbs but often exceed 20 lbs and can reach 30 lbs or more. At Nicholas Dean Lodge you will enjoy fishing on the best rivers in the Lower Skeena system, including the Upper Copper, Lower Copper, Kalum, Skeena, Kitimat and many more unnamed coastal rivers for some of the largest Steelhead and Salmon in the world.


Nicholas Dean operates 2 camps: the new main lodge is Yellow Cedar Lodge located on the outskirts of Terrace. and the Skeena Camp is an on-river tent camp offering more spartan accommodation in the heart of the northern BC wilderness. At Yellow Cedar Lodge you will find a mixture of private single and double bedrooms, a bar and games room, lounge, gym and cardio equipment room, sauna, hot tub, wrap-around porch, and a large dining area and bar for sharing those daily fishing stories with old friends and new.

Typical Day

As with many hardcore fishing lodges, your day starts with a hearty breakfast at 6 am and anglers are given an opportunity to pack their own box lunch to take with them that day. Anglers fish from 7:30 to 5:30 and return to the lodge by truck for a 5-star dinner at 7 pm. While some anglers stay up recounting the day of fishing, most retire early so they can recharge for their next day on the water.
