Experience First Class Fishing In the Pristine Wilderness Of Haida Gwaii

Queen Charlotte Lodge is a wilderness fishing adventure perfectly blended with the comforts of warm hospitality in nature’s picturesque Haida Gwaii island.

Situated on the north-west corner of British Columbia, Canada, our lodge is perfectly positioned in the fishing grounds of the ‘Salmon Super-Highway’, intercepting migrating fish as they return to their natal grounds each year.  This prime location gifts us consistently exciting fishing year after year.

We provide a full range of fishing services for every level of angler, from the beginner through to the seasoned veteran. Our fleet of boats are each designed with performance and safety in mind.

Whether you choose to fish on your own or with one of our professional guides, you can be sure we’ll work hard to provide you with the ultimate fishing adventure experience of a lifetime!

However, the fishing at the Queen Charlotte Lodge is just the start.  Our location is literally a wilderness wonderland that is sure to take your breath away every day.  Out on the water it is not uncommon to witness humpback whales, orcas, or a soaring bald eagle.  Being surrounded by stunning scenery you will enter natures bliss of relaxation and adventure.

After an adventure filled day on the water our guests retire to our luxury lodge where 5* food awaits and your chance to completely unwind.  At Queen Charlotte Lodge our friendly atmosphere and warm hospitality makes you feel like you are right at home. We always strive to exceed your expectations.

There is no better way to end a great day of fishing day than to take in the Naden Harbour sunset from the Bell Ringer. Or share stories of the day’s catches in front of the crackling fireplace in the Main Lodge. Our luxury fishing lodge is a true west coast experience that you will not forget.

Whether it’s the exhilaration of seeing a pod or orcas alongside your boat, the flash of chrome silver as the fish of a lifetime swims away or the cheers of your friends as you clang the Tyee bell in celebration, the QCL experience is something you never forget. This is a special place and we’re very pleased to share it.

    QCL Media Centre

    If a picture is worth a thousand words then we have so many stories to tell at QCL! A visit to the Media Centre tells you how it is. You can investigate all of our facilities, check out the fishing grounds, or even the weather!

    Luxury Fishing! It’s hard to imagine the words luxury and fishing going together, but the Queen Charlotte Lodge definitely succeeds! Every detail is taken care of and you feel like your every whim is being catered to. Very well organized and the staff is incredible. The rooms are comfortable and very clean, and the food is excellent. The winning point in this particular lodge for our group was the fact that groups can go out on their own without a guide. We are experienced fishermen and wanted to be able to go out on our own in our own boats to fish the way we wanted. At the Queen Charlotte Lodge, this is an option. There is a guide at the beginning of the trip to give you the tips of the area, from what depth the fish are at, what bait/lure is working in the area, and where the fishing grounds are so you feel confident to go out and fish on your own. Incredible experience…Incredible operation.
