Haida Gwaii, also known as the Queen Charlotte Islands, is home to the best salmon and halibut fishing grounds anywhere in the world. Sounds like a bold statement, but it’s true as this is the first major feeding station for salmon coming off the open Pacific ocean in search of food on their migratory paths home. You’ll be right in the middle of it all with Escott Sportfishing. The lodge’s location offers you ultimate access to local fishing grounds. Salmon here are in the prime of their lives; big, aggressive, healthy and hungry!
Danny Escott prides himself on running a first class operation. Escott Sportfishing operates a fleet of fully-equipped Grady White sport fishing boats ready for your arrival. Guests fish two to three to a boat, depending on group size, giving everybody lots of time on the rods and each boat is fully-guided, you’ll be in well capable hands with experienced guides.
The waters of Haida Gwaii also offer excellent halibut and ground fishing. This will be included in your package to Escott Sportfishing. And remember, getting your fish in the boat is only half the story. Escott Sportfishing makes sure they care for your catch with the same rigorous standards – bleeding it as soon as caught, storing the fish on ice in closed cooler while fishing and ensuring that it is expertly cleaned by your captain and sealed in the freezer before dinner is served.
