This is fishing Disneyland and National Geographic all wrapped in to one. Mind blown. You should go.

Our fishing program is designed to take full advantage of all the great fishing opportunities available in Haida Gwaii, the westernmost area of British Columbia, Canada. The fishing grounds at QCL offer some of the best fishing for salmon and halibut in the world. Vast populations of herring and needlefish mean that the islands of Haida Gwaii offer big fishing at its finest. This locale provides some of the most consistently exciting fishing to be found anywhere and monstrous halibut and mighty salmon are caught all season long!
Whether you are a seasoned veteran or a beginner, QCL provides a full range of services to meet your every need. We are proud to offer a fleet of boats specifically designed for performance and safety. You can choose to fish on your own on a self-guided trip or benefit from the assistance of a professional guide on a guided fishing trip. Either way, QCL will provide you with the fishing trip of a lifetime! Your first class fishing experience includes 5-star dining, luxurious accommodations, return airfare, helicopter transfer, all fishing gear, care of your catch, access to onsite spa services, relaxing activities, and, of course, staff who are always happy to meet your needs.
A first class fishing resort always has guests coming back for more! And at QCL, that’s our goal, every day. From start to finish, the staff and management at Queen Charlotte Lodge strive to provide each guest with a stress-free trip. A welcoming and friendly atmosphere is the hallmark of our comfortable accommodations while our guests enjoy warm hospitality.
The Charlottes have been on my bucket list for many years, as has experiencing a first class fishing lodge. Queen Charlotte Lodge has to be one of the most iconic soft-adventure experiences in North America, and perhaps even the world.

If you are looking for the greatest fishing experience of your life this is THE place to go. From the knowledgeable fishing guides to the delicious meals they have thought of every detail. The fishing was amazing – we easily caught our limit in coho and chinooks including my very first Tyee at 38lbs! The facilities are top quality with well-appointed rooms, a gorgeous main lodge, and a bar at the dock that has the best ‘après fish’ anywhere.
