The Experience

Frontier Steelhead Experience

Steelheaders rejoice! This program has changed the game in steelhead fishing. There are a handful of destinations around the world that everyone who travels to fish has either been to or is planning to go to. This is one of those places. Frontier Steelhead Experience has become one of the premiere destinations to fish in the world. Luxury meets rustic as you fish your way through 150 miles of named runs while staying at two different lodges during a week’s stay. The main lodge boasts a spectacular, modern post-and-beam facility and offers single occupancy cabins to 12 guests a week (private bathrooms with heated floors).

What makes FSE so unique and special is that the typical week allows you the opportunity to fish the Upper Morice River, famous for its long glassy glides and Hemingwayesque dry fly water. Guests stay two nights at our Morice River Lodge, which is a remote jet boat-access-only facility with all the comforts of home. In these crystal-clear waters, you will find yourself sightcasting to a multitude of steelhead.

We are the only guided fishing operation on the entire Morice River. The Morice River represents the definition of what a wild steelhead river should look like, and it is laid out like it was designed for a spey rod and a dry fly. Our specialized logistics and attention to detail make it effortless to fish through all this incredible water with ease in one week. Not one other steelhead lodge in the world offers you two lodges to utilize over a week’s stay. One lodge offers the highest level of luxury of any fishing operation in the world, while the other gives you that rustic, riverside, campfire vibe you have been craving. Together, over one week, they fulfill every Steelheader’s wildest concept of a dream vacation.

If you prefer to get out of the luxury of the main lodge and rough it a bit more, we have two separate overnight steelhead camps in the upper and lower Bulkley canyons. Sturdy wall tents on prime water puts you in the centre of the best beats available on the entire Bulkley River. Fish from dawn till dusk and target aggressive, fresh, chrome steelhead as they negotiate the class 4 rapids of the canyons. No other lodge has put more effort into developing a fishing program than Frontier Farwest. We love many fishing operations around the world, but this one is indeed a very special experience that should not be missed.

"Awesome as usual! I wish is was a little more primitive, but I can handle the pampering too. Keep up the excellent work!."
