Haida Gwaii trip


This unique trip will give you the ultimate Northern BC fly fishing experience.  It combines 3 days fishing the ocean for salmon at our Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands) lodge, along with fishing the rivers of the Bulkley Valley.  Space is very limited so advance bookings is a must.   By weeks end you will have a box full of fresh salmon to take home, have eaten fresh dungenous crab, and experienced the best river fishing in British Columbia.  There is nothing like this available anywhere in the world.

7 day split between Haida Gwaii, and Bulkley Valley

The trip starts in Sandspit BC which is located on Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands). From here you will fish 3 days in the ocean out of our ocean front lodge fishing for King Salmon.  You can expect to catch good quantities of quality salmon each day on the water.  The fishing grounds are protected offering a wonderful BC fly fishing experience at the most productive salmon fishery in the world.

After 3 days on the ocean we will fly you 2 hours to Smithers, BC where the second half of your trip begins.  Here you will have 4 days of fishing in the most productive salmon and trout rivers on the west coast. You can target large rainbow trout or chinook salmon in our local rivers enjoying the finest accomodations northern BC has to offer.

At weeks end you will depart from Smithers BC back to Vancouver where you can catch your flight back home.
