DIY Dean River Trip 2016

Am looking to plan a DIY trip into the Dean this summer (mid July/early August). After reading previous posts on this forum about DIY trips to the Dean, I am curious if any other forum members are considering doing a similar trip this summer. If so, I would be keen to discuss the prospect for cost sharing transit to and from the Dean.

Unless you are a BC resident you will have to wait and do the raffle next winter, 2016 has already passed I believe. Or you could go ta a lodge.

I have always put a DIY trip to the Dean near the top of my bucket list. I would consider joining another or small group and would certainly share transit costs and overlapping gear. Shoot me a PM if interested.

You'll need to plan for 2017 unless you're a Canadian resident...the draw closed on March 31. I'm sure the lodges still have a few openings if you're interested in that.

I concur that the time for the Dean draw ended March 31. We got our notification from Patty that we got our dates about a week ago. Greyghosts, you could write and ask if there are any dates left from the draw that you could get for 2016, but otherwise your next chance will be the 2017 draw next March.

Thanks for the info guys. I am a BC resident so it's just a matter of getting to the Dean from Bella Coola. We are currently a party of two seeking other anglers to share transit costs with

Greyghosts,

Just tell the nice lady at WCH that you want to transit in and out when the helicopter has a load both directions if you can be flexible. Shouldn't be a problem.

I'm envious.
I'd love to do that someday.
