Canada is known for its world class King Salmon/Chinook and Halibut fishing and there is nowhere in British Columbia where multiple world renowned fishing lodges all congregate at the same approximate location, either Naden Harbour or nearby Langara Island.
The primary ocean fishing season runs from May 1 through September 30.
|Fish Type||Fishing Permitted|
|Halibut||Anytime except January|
|King Salmon / Chinook||Anytime|
|Coho/Silvers||Consult Fishing Regulations due to conservation restrictions|
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).
