Expect isolation — you might not see another fisherman for days
Isolation. Beautiful scenery. Access to diverse runs of ocean fish, including coho and chinook salmon, at the start of their passage down the West Coast. These are the defining characteristic of a fishing experience on Haida Gwaii, one of B.C.’s most interesting coastal destinations. The small islands of the Haida Gwaii are ecologically distinct from the mainland of British Columbia, having evolved separately over millennia. There is more wildlife than people, and more natural fishing opportunities than almost anywhere else. This is a unique part of the province well worth the trip. Guiding services can be readily found in Queen Charlotte City and Masset.
