Discover QCL

“Experience Fishing First Class“ in the Pristine Wilderness Of Haida Gwaii

The ultimate fishing experience means something different to everyone. Whether you are eager to hit the water at dawn or prefer a slower start, savouring that second cup of coffee, we’re here for you.

Our fishing program is designed to take full advantage of the unrivaled fishing opportunities available in Haida Gwaii, along the westernmost shores of British Columbia, Canada. An abundance of herring and needlefish means productive fishing at any time throughout our season, offering the world’s premier fisheries for salmon and halibut.

Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or fishing novice, QCL provides a full range of services to meet every need. Our boat fleet is specifically designed for performance and safety – choose to fish on your own, self-guided, or benefit from the assistance of one of our professional guides.

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.

    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.
