Z –Boat Lodge

Terrace, British Colombia, Canada

Kim Zeerip & Lani Waller with 24 lb fresh buck steelhead This is the place for opportunities to fish for steelhead, salmon & many other species right in the heart of the best fishing of British Colombia. Z-Boat is a small operation run by Brad & Kim Zeerip situtated on the banks of the famous Skeena River just on the edge of the town Terrace.

Unlike other destination lodges, Z-Boat is unique in that the angler has access to a number of rivers during any given stay. Their guides are licensed to fish all four sections of the world-renowned Skeena, plus its famous tributaries: the Copper River, Kalum River, Ecstall, the Kasiks, Kimat, and others. Some rivers are accessed by boat which lets the fisherman enjoy the remote locations of this gorgeous region of snow capped mountains and granite cliffs with cascading waterfalls. The boats make for the great escape, and often you will see no one else on the rivers for your entire stay.

Depending on the time of year you visit there (the season is 8 months long), there are opportunities to fish for steelhead, Kings (Chinook), Coho (silvers), sockeye, pink, and chum salmon; rainbow, cutthroat, dolly varden, and bull trout all native to the watershed. The steelhead and salmon are some of the largest in the world. Most are still super fresh as Terrace is not far from the salt, and you can expect great fights, and challenges in landing these fish. The scenery is spectacular and the variety of water to be fished makes a trip to this lodge so interesting and fun that Brad and Kim have a regular repeat clientele of satisfied and avid anglers.

The lodge sits on the banks of the Skeena and commands a great view of Sleeping Beauty Mt. It has an intimate cozy atmosphere and Brad and Kim specialize in accommodating small parties up to 6 anglers or more on request for a week or stays shorter than 7 days. There are six bedrooms with private baths and a recreation room with fireplaces, bar, and a pool table. They provide friendly, home-style meals & attentive service in their scenic riverfront lodge.
