I explored the website and it looks like a fantastic experience all around. What I could not find was the cost. Can anyone offer that information? Thanks

Haven't personally spent time there, but a buddy goes every year to help set up and my neighbor is going in a week (he's been a few years).

It's the Dean, so, you know, do it if you can.

I haven't gone to KBL (yet!) but James Reid spends the season out there apart from his more well known bamboo rod making business. His rod shop partner Ryan also spends a lot of time, if not the whole season out there too.
I'd drop him a line. Let me know if you don't have his contact details.

I was up there last week at BC West (similar location and price). I briefly met the two new guides and they were both polite. Kimsquit program is more of a 9-5 type schedule while BC starts earlier and then has midday 4 hour break, then out at the evening. This leads to less overlaps between the lodges. Kimsquit focuses on the lower river, which really is "travelling" water not "holding". Certainly this approach targets the freshest fish, on the tide that brought them. BC West splits clients evenly between the upper and lower river (canyon marking the demarcation). Kimsquit is known for nice facilities and food, as is BC West. Make your decision based on the type of experience you are looking for.
