We invite you to experience a fishing adventure on the edge of the world. The remote islands of BC’s Haida Gwaii (formerly and are often commonly known as the Queen Charlotte Islands) are unique experiences in a rare and magnificent landscape. Surround yourself with an amazing range of abundant wilderness, wildlife, and lush green coastal rainforests. Feel the salt water spray gently graze your face as you set out on the Pacific at dawn to battle the legendary Chinook (King) Salmon.
Here you will find a beautiful and expansive landscape home to arguably the best salmon and halibut fishing in the world. Vast populations of herring and needlefish mean that the islands of Haida Gwaii offer big fishing at its finest. Monstrous halibut and mighty salmon are caught all season long!
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.
