Experience The Lodge

Located in a park-like setting on the Pit River, Clearwater Lodge guests experience fine dining, comfortable accommodations and a relaxed atmosphere for sharing the days adventures with their fellow guests. The wide front porch is an inviting place to enjoy a glass of wine or beer and share stories of the days adventures. Our massive stone fireplace with cozy seating beckons you to linger and relax. The billiard room is the place to be after dinner for fun with new and old friends and our guides.

Magnificent old sycamore trees create a canopy of shade along our entry driveway and there are chairs and benches placed among the oaks and pines on the beautiful grounds for relaxing.


Gourmet dining has become a hallmark of the Clearwater Lodge experience. Our chef dazzles guests each evening with unique and creative menus. Locally sourced, high quality ingredients are used to create unique seasonal offerings with exceptional flavor and flair. Dessert is never less than a wow. After a day astream, you can look forward to excellent family style meals from a chef who understands that fishing builds hearty appetites. Special attention is given to accommodate those with dietary restrictions (please inform us of any allergies or ingredients to avoid upon making your reservation).

Chef and Menus  


After a full day on the water, Clearwater Lodge welcomes you back with a complimentary happy hour and social time. In warm months, guests congregate on the covered front porch to enjoy an adult beverage and share their stories from the day. During cooler evenings, the fire pit in back beckons with its warmth as a gathering place. The great room offers plush seating around the massive stone fireplace for reading or visiting with friends new and old. Our billiard room with large screen television has hosted many contests before and after dinner.


The Lodge and surrounding property originally served as the housing and recreation facility for the staff and operators of the adjacent PG&E Pit One Power House as well as other power houses in the vicinity.

It is impossible to spend time here at Clearwater Lodge and not be captured by the sights and sounds on our grounds and on the water. Our guides take pride in providing their guests numerous shots of fish caught each day. And we welcome guests sharing their photos with us on our various social media sites.

Though the majority of our guests come to Clearwater Lodge to experience fly fishing, there are many hidden treasures to be explored all around this region. The 100 miles of rolling mountain country between Mt Lassen to the south and Mt Shasta to the north is rich with scenery and recreational opportunities. This "Intermountain Area" is a land shaped by volcanic activity and is very different from any other part of California. Hot and cold springs, fumaroles, old lava flows and lava tubes invite exploration. River canyons cut the land and there is water everywhere, in springs, creeks, lakes and rivers. Golf, cycling, hiking and more await you.
