Trip Report: Nicholas Dean Lodge

Arrival Day:
After an easy flight and a short drive from the airport to the legendary Nicholas Dean Lodge; we were met by the operations manager, Chad Black. Within minutes our luggage was whisked away to our rooms and dinner was soon to follow. While they prepared our dinner the group had a chance to walk around the lodge and unpack.

As I walked through the lodge I saw dozens and dozens of trophy steelhead pictures and it was hard not to imagine myself in one of those picture frames. Every room and wall has evidence that this is the land of huge steelhead.

Dinner was excellent; steaks, baked potatoes, salad and cheesecake for dessert. What a great way to start off a trip, well fed and well rested for tomorrows first day of fishing.

Check back tomorrow for Chrome Report 1…
