Fish for salmon and halibut at this remote ocean fishing lodge off the coast of Vancouver Island. This lodge is unique, both in its location and in the service it provides. Nestled in a tiny cove next to an uninhabited island, this floating lodge is positioned to take advantage of world class saltwater fishing opportunities. Fishing in calm, island filled waters, guests catch chinook, coho, pinks, sockeye and chums. The area also yields an excellent halibut fishery. The lodge's small size assures guests receive personal service in comfortable accommodations. The food is fantastic and the scenery and nature-watching are extraordinary.
Millions of migrating salmon go through the bottleneck of British Columbia's Inside Passage, and lodge is situated to take full advantage of the presence of these fish. Trolling is the method of choice and, year after year, guests really appreciate how consistent the fishing remains. The area is also home to some excellent BC halibut fishing-some spots are within just a few minutes of the lodge. The largest halibut, which was landed in the 2005 season topped out at 200 pounds! In addition to all types of Pacific salmon (chinook, coho, pink, sockeye, and chum), the area also produces large halibut, ling cod, snapper, and a variety of other saltwater species.
In addition to fishing, eco-guests choose to concentrate on the other delights of the area known as the Broughton Archipelago. This area is a natural paradise bounded by the mountains of Vancouver Island to the west and the Coast Range to the east. Blackfish Sound and Johnstone Strait are home to one of the largest resident populations of orca whales. Bear, deer, eagles, porpoises, seals, Minke whales, a variety of birdlife and many other delights await the avid nature watcher. Guests can also view rock paintings, old villages, native woodcarvers and other fascinating glimpses of the area's long and rich native culture.
