Dry fly action at the St Lewis river Lodge
The Falls Pool directly below the lodge is likely one of the most productive pools in world for salmon angling during prime time of late June until late July. The lodge is located 10 kilometers from tidewater and the Falls Pool is the first major obstacle for salmon. Much of the first 35 kilometers of the river consists of deep canyons and gorges, which tail out into boulder fields and rapids followed by long shallow steadies then more canyons. While there has never been a need to fish anywhere other than proximal to the lodge, our three year-long salmon tracking science programs has aided in establishing 4 additional pools a short distance from the lodge. These new pools have proven quite productive in both numbers and for the change of scenery. A sturdy rope walking bridge is available for ease of access to the south shoreline during high water conditions.
