Are you looking for a British Columbia fishing lodge that offers a remote wilderness location and a variety of terrific fishing opportunities? Want the personal service you expect from a small lodge? Relax, you’ve found it, Blackfish Lodge. The fly fishing, conventional freshwater fishing, salmon fishing and bottom fishing are the stuff of legends. You’ll fish for salmon, trout, and halibut in some of the most beautiful locations you can imagine.
Unique Features: The waters of Blackfish Sound, Queen Charlotte Strait, Johnstone Strait, Knight Inlet, and Kingcome Inlet are home to a large and famous concentration of orca whales. Other marine mammals that frequent the area are harbor porpoises, Dall’s porpoises, Pacific white-sided dolphins, seals, and Minke whales.
Accommodations: The genuine, custom-built, BC floating lodge is your comfortable and cozy home base for delightful days of fun and relaxation. You’ll see stunning Canada wilderness scenery, abundant wildlife, and, of course, have great fishing. Each guest room has a queen bed and a single bed. The lodge’s maximum capacity is 6 adult guests.
As Suite As It Gets: When money is no object, go for the lodge rooms. Each room is equally as nice.
Dining: Their legendary hearty meals are welcome sustenance after a day on the water. They believe that providing ample, high quality, and delicious food adds to the overall pleasure of your visit. Meals are served and cooked family-style. If you’re going to be out on an all-day salmon or fly fishing trip, they’ll make sure that there is a generous supply of food and hot and cold drinks on the boat.

Location: Located within the southern confines of the new Great Bear Rainforest preserve and framed by the rugged mountains of the Coast Range to the east and beautiful Vancouver Island to the west, the wilderness area that surrounds Blackfish Lodge is spectacular.

Untouched streams tumble through lovely rich forests to join the saltwater.
