Have the experience of a lifetime on the Nootka Sound with the DIY fishing opportunities we offer at Nootka Wilderness Lodge. While we have experienced guides that will bring you out and show you the best spots for fishing in Canada, you can also choose to venture out alone or with your friends. When you’d like to fish the West Coast during the early hours of the day before the dawn breaks, you’ll be able to do just that. Nootka Wilderness Lodge caters to anglers that are both experienced and beginners, so depending on your knowledge and skill, a DIY fishing trip may just be for you!

Why Do-it-Yourself

The best part about a DIY adventure is that you won’t have to stick to a strict schedule which will leave you with the flexibility of fishing in Canada at your own pace. Unlike most fishing resorts, you’ll be able to venture out on the Nootka Sound at any time while you’re with us, which means you can head out at two in the morning if you’d like! DIY trips give master anglers who have been fishing Campbell River, BC, for years the freedom to bring your equipment and use your own boat.

What a DIY Trip Includes

During your stay, you’ll be able to fill your boat in our marina as well as dine with us after a long day out on the West Coast. Not only will you be surrounded by the serene wilderness of Vancouver Island while you’re fishing but you’ll also be able to enjoy a breathtaking sunset from our private deck with a glass of wine during the evening. A DIY trip includes gourmet food, wet weather gear, a guide if you’d like one, lodging, marina access, and water toys such as kayaks and paddleboards.

Planning your Trip

The best part about Nootka Wilderness Lodge is that we offer something for every angler from our adventure packages to DIY fishing trips. You’ll love fishing for Coho and Chinook in Campbell River, BC, where fishing is wide open, and it will be an experience unparalleled to any other. Our floating fishing Nootka Sound resort has 12 guest rooms that feature a washroom and shower. We’d love nothing more than to talk with you about setting up a DIY fishing vacation, all you have to do is tell us what you have in mind, and we’ll build the trip! Give us a call at 1-250-850-1500.
