HELLO , MY WIFE AND I HAVE FISHED OUT OF SKEENA LODGE TWICE, 2015 AND 2018. REALLY NICE PEOPLE, RIVER IN SEPTEMBER FULL OF STEELHEAD AND SALMON, HOWEVER, TALK ABOUT ONE HAND TIED BEHIND YOUR BACK, IN 2015 THE WHOEVER DECIDES THE METHODS WHICH CAN BE USED TO FISH DECIDED THAT NOT ONLY WERE ANGLERS RESTRICTED TO SINGLE HOOKS , BUT BY THE TIME WE WENT BACK FOR A SECOND GO ON THE STEELHEAD, WE COULD ONLY USE BARBLESS HOOKS, THE RESULT WAS FISH AFTER FISH BUMPING OFF, SNATCH N GRAB , EXCITING FOR SURE, BUT FRUSTRATING. BUT AN AMAZING RIVER THE SKEENA, THE NEARER TO THE SEA, E.G SKEENA ONE, YOU CAN NEGOTIATE, THE WILDER AND MORE EXCITING IT GETS. THE SIZE OF THE WOLVES PATROLLING THE SHORELINE EATING THE SPENT SALMON WASHED UP KIND OF PUTS YOU OFF ASKING THE GUIDE TO BEACH THE BOAT FOR A PEE. HOWEVER, RESTRICTIONS ON METHODS ASIDE, I CAN WITHOUT HESITATION RECOMMEND THE SKEENA LODGE GUIDES, ALSO, HALF DECENT ACCOMODATION AND THE FOOD WAS TOP NOTCH.No I'm going next year, so let the lodge keep my deposit.
Im not sure if we are talking about the same issue here , The comment was -- "Also beware how many anglers per guide. If more than 2, it can become quite challenging."Surely its less expensive the more anglers per guide ?
Ah, cheers for that.Im not sure if we are talking about the same issue here , The comment was -- "Also beware how many anglers per guide. If more than 2, it can become quite challenging."
So if you are booked in to an outfitters lodge they have guides that work for them and depending on the number of guests staying at the lodge you will assigned to a guide to take you fishing , he could also be taking another one or two anglers with him ,, depending on circumstance , It then isn't about being less expensive the more anglers per guide , (as you ask) because usually your not paying or tipping the guides daily as the guide is included in your overall cost , Most if not all anglers will leave a tip to be spilt between the guides at the end of their trip,
Its about a guide trying to look after more than two rods and spreading his attention fairly, and that the water your fishing has enough space for each angler that your not crowded
