Copper Bay Lodge is owned and operated by Derek Botchford and Andrea Soto. In the Fall they operate Frontier Farwest on the Bulkley and Morice rivers. In the winter the FFW team head to Haida Gwaii to target winter steelhead.
Although Frontier Farwest is a much bigger lodge, it is a world class destination and the same level of guiding and service is brought to you at Copper bay Lodge. Many of the guests who go to the Bulkley each year are starting to catch on to the hidden gem at Copper Bay Lodge.
Derek and Andrea have truly found steelheading off the grid in this magical paradise. Having your own steelhead river to yourself is becoming rare in this day and age.
The challenges are rewarding, and most importantly you will be fishing on your own, for trophy wild fish. For anyone that has enjoyed winter steelheading, this is a bucket list experience that you should not miss.
