Even in 1947 Kamloops Rainbow Trout were making a name for themselves and fly fishermen from around the world were seeking out this new frontier. The area was featured in a 1958 National Geographic article.
In 1989 Marlene and Larry Loney, native British Columbians, took over the lodge. They changed the name of the lodge but maintained the wilderness traditions that have enriched the lives of all the guests who have visited over the years. Many of the lodges first clients continue to visit. These guests were first introduced to a BC fishing trip as children. They are now returning with their children to continue a family tradition.
The lodge has been continually upgraded to reflect the high standard of service now offered. Although times have changed, there is still an outhouse available for anyone feeling nostalgic!
