salmon fishing Haida Gwaii

For a saltwater salmon fishing adventure that you will never forget, head to Haida Gwaii, the Queen Charlotte Islands, located in the North by Northwest Region of British Columbia.

Legendary names such as Langara Island, Naden Harbor, Virago Sound, and Tasu are home to monster Chinook and Coho salmon as well as huge Halibut, Rockfish and Lingcod.

Salmon Fishing Haida Gwaii
Chinook salmon start appearing in Hecate Strait in late February and will begin entering some of the inlets. By mid-April, these feeder springs start showing up in numbers around Langara Island. By early May they are starting to be caught in Tasu Sound on the west coast of Haida Gwaii. From late May until mid-September, Chinook fishing is excellent, with peak periods occurring in mid-June and mid-August. 60+ lbs. are still possible in Haida Gwaii.

Coho salmon will usually start appearing by early June. As they feed and start moving towards their home streams, their size (often reaching 20+ lbs.) and numbers will increase. Peak times for fishing Coho is from late July through September.

Bottom fish such as Yellow eye Rockfish (Red Snapper), Lingcod, and Halibut are plentiful. Halibut in the 100 lb. range are not at all uncommon! (See Game Fish of BC)

Haida Gwaii, the Queen Charlotte Islands in the Haida language, offers much more than great fishing. Daily sightings of porpoises, dolphins, whales, Killer whales and Sea Lions are common. Don’t be surprised to also see Bald eagles, Peregrine falcons, deer and Black bear. (See The Great Outdoors section for more information on animals of BC.)

There are miles of hiking trails, spectacular beaches, parks, kayaking and canoeing, great freshwater fishing, or take a trip back in time and visit an abandoned Haida village and totems. The scenery in this area is awesome, with the coastal mountains as the backdrop and blue Pacific waters at your feet.

Haida Gwaii can only be reached by sea or air. By water, you can take a B.C. ferry from Port Hardy on Vancouver Island to Prince Rupert. This is a spectacular route travelling through the deep water fjords of the Inside Passage. From Prince Rupert you take another ferry to Queen Charlotte City on southeast Graham Island.

The islands can also be reached via air directly from Vancouver or Prince Rupert. If you are travelling B.C. by land, Prince Rupert can be reached by travelling west on Hwy. 16 from Prince George.

Once you have decided on Haida Gwaii, the Queen Charlotte Islands for your next fishing spot, book well in advance. There are a number of land-based lodges, floating lodges and boat charters, but the area is getting very popular. Most wilderness fly-in lodges transport their guests via air directly from Vancouver.

Salmon fishing Haida Gwaii is an adventure you’ll always remember. For salmon fishing at its finest, it’s Haida Gwaii in BC’s North by Northwest Region.
