Naden Harbour is within only 30 boating minutes from Masset, and Naden Harbour is situated half way between Masset and Langara Island. However, the locals have excellent fishing within 15 boating minutes from Masset.


Here are the World Renowned Fishing Lodges situated near Masset, not more than one hour boating distance. We welcome guests of these lodges to combine their package with our land accommodation for the ultimate fishing or eco-tourism adventure in the world.


Naden Harbour

Our very own
Chinook Lodge

A typical catch for a King Salmon/Chinook is twenty to thirty pounds (up to 80 lbs) and Halibut may be in the same range (up to 300 lbs).

Freshwater fishing:

  • November 1 through March 31 - Steelhead fishing occurs in the Yakoun River. Trout abound in the rivers and lakes of the Queen Charlotte Islands.

Saltwater (federal) and freshwater (provincial) regulations require either a saltwater or freshwater fishing license and specie tag stamps, such as for Chinook and Steelhead.

Chinook Lodge has a freezer in each townhouse for your catch while flash freezing is also available at commercial facilities in Masset. More information on local fish packaging services are provided here (.pdf file).
