Langara Island Lodge 2018


We’re gearing up for another season guided at Langara Island Lodge, the premier salmon fishing lodge on BC’s north coast.  Tom & Yos have guided at Langara Island Lodge for over a decade each now and we facilitate bookings for the lodge in the off-season.  If you’re looking for an incredible salmon fishing trip in British Columbia, then be sure to put Langara Island on the short list and contact us for more info.

Sunny days at Bruin Bay, this one of the best salmon fishing spots on the coast of BC and it’s a 5 minute run from Langara Island Lode

Getting ready for the Langara Island salmon fishing season is pretty easy, we send all our gear up on a barge in late April and we fly up to get set up in late May.  For the 2018 season our first guests arrive on May 26th and our season will carry through until mid September. That’s the great thing about salmon fishing Langara Island, we have such a long salmon fishing season, with super consistent fishing all season long.  By the sounds of it the Langara Island salmon fishing has already been very good. Some of the early season staff is up there and have been out on the water, so we’re excited to get up there!  Here’s a few common questions we get when we’re getting ready for the Langara Island fishing season…

What happens to all the other Chromer trips happening in BC?

They still happen, you better believe it!  We might be up at Langara Island guiding, but that doesn’t mean we put the brakes on anything else we do. We are still running our full fly fishing operations in Vancouver & Whistler and we’re still booking for our Vancouver salmon fishing charters and our Fraser River sturgeon fishing trips. All our trips are happening as per usual and we still have our full office staff in Vancouver to facilitate our trips and make sure our clients enjoy premium customer service.  Our team of guides running all our trips also have all hands on deck for the summer season, so you can expect great service when booking and equally as great service when you’re fishing with us.

Where is Langara Island Lodge?

Langara Island Lodge is located on the northern tip of Haida Gwaii.  Haida Gwaii is a set of remote islands off the northern coast of British Columbia, an area steeped in history, native culture and thriving coastal ecosystems. To get to Langara Island we fly from Vancouver to Masset, about 1.5 hours flying time.  Masset is a small community located on Graham Island.  From Masset we fly by helicopter to the lodge, the flight is about 20 minutes.  It is as remote of a salmon fishing location as you’ll find in British Columbia, pretty cool place to spend the Summer!

Within site of the lodge is where you’ll find some of the best fishing Langara Island has to offer. This is one of the few places in BC you can fish minutes from the lodge with no long runs.

Whens the best fishing at Langara Island?

The entire season at Langara Island will offer you excellent salmon and halibut fishing, the best you’ll find in British Columbia. That being said there are different parts of season. Late May and June are all about numbers, this is when we have insane chinook (king) salmon and can have hookups all day long throughout June.  Definitely a super fun month to be fishing at Langara Island, with fish averaging 15-30 pounds! In July we start seeing some more coho (silver) salmon showing up mixed in with chinooks. By mid July we start seeing some of the bigger chinook salmon and as we move into the first week of August it is all about chasing monster chinook salmon in the 30-50 pound class. As we hit mid August we usually have very good chinook fishing and more prevalent numbers of coho salmon, some days we can have 30-40 cohos  a day, it gets pretty crazy. If you’re excited to do some halibut fishing, then you’re in luck, great halibut fishing and bottom fishing all season long at Langara Island.
