Queen Charlotte Lodge

First Class Fishing

The ultimate fishing experience means something different to everyone. Whether you’re eager to hit the water at dawn for the early bite, or prefer to just relax in the surrounding beauty of the resort grounds, QCL offers something for everyone.

“Going Fishing” is a great old tradition that we’re more than happy to support at Queen Charlotte Lodge! Our fishing program is built to take full advantage of the exceptional fishing opportunities available here in Haida Gwaii.

Our fishing grounds are right in the path of the “salmon super-highway,“ intercepting migrating fish as they return to their natal streams every year. Our prime location provides some of the most consistently exciting fishing anywhere!

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!

Queen Charlotte Lodge Takes First Class Fishing to a New Level

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.
