What Sets Us Apart

We are proud to be a luxury fishing resort on the West Coast of Vancouver Island, and unlike many lodges, you will be only minutes from fishing Campbell River BC. No need to take a two-hour plane ride to do world-class fishing as we are close to numerous fishing locations so that you’re able to spend more of your time on the water instead of above it! We provide daily meals so that you never go hungry during your stay! Our culinary Red Seal Executive chef tends to be the show stealer here, as delicious gourmet meals are passionately created by the plentiful, and you’ll be subject to comical banter during dinner to boot! Our Vancouver Island fishing lodges provide an intimate experience, accommodating small groups so that you’re able to get the attention from our caring staff that you deserve during your stay.

Our Experienced Guides

As you step aboard our large cruiser boats, you’ll come to understand why having a knowledgeable guide is essential while in Vancouver Island fishing. Even for the experienced angler, fishing the Nootka Sound waters will be unparalleled to any other type of fishing you’ve done in the past, especially during salmon season. Our pro-guides have excellent knowledge of the water currents, best spots to fish, and will give you continuous tips on how to have a hugely successful day fishing our local hot spots. Our guides will supply bait, lures, rods, rain gear, snacks, so there’s no need to overload your luggage. Not only do we provide an abundance of equipment, but our guides will point out the nearby wildlife that can be seen from your cruisers, such as sea lions, otters, eagles, bears, and even the occasional whale!

Private Vancouver Island Fishing Lodges

We suggest bringing sunscreen, hats, a light long sleeve, and sunglasses as the reflection of the sun off the water during the salmon season can be quite intense. The salmon fishing season is wide open here at our Nootka Wilderness Lodge, which is one of the many reasons to make our West Coast Nootka Sound resort your fishing destination! You’ll spend up to eight hours a day fishing Campbell River BC, and it will become your one of your favourite things to do in Canada as you’ll have a new found respect for the sport of fishing.
