Join Phil Rowley and Greg Keenan for the 2021 Skitchine Lodge Stillwater School

With sixteen lakes full of wild rainbow trout in a protected wilderness setting, Skitchine Lodge is the perfect place to hone your stillwater fly-fishing skills. This course combines seminar instruction in our spacious lodge with on the water sessions in our fully outfitted boats.

During the month of June, you will be able to perfect a variety of chironomid skills including indicator tactics, floating line long leader tactics, and sinking line tactics. Our lakes also boast healthy mayfly and caddis fly populations, so casting dry and emerger patterns is a distinct possibility. Instruction on fishing leeches, damsels, dragonflies and attractor patterns such as Booby’s and FAB’s will also be covered.

Space is limited to 12 fly fishers to provide the maximum quality experience and ensure everyone gets to spend time with the instructors.
