Quite simply, Langara Island offers salmon and halibut fishing found nowhere else on the planet. This is an incredible piece of fishing paradise, accessed by only a handful of lucky anglers each summer season.

  • Short run times of 5-15 minutes to the protected water fishing grounds, means more fishing and comfort.
  • A long season of spectacular fishing, prime time is late May to early September for big Chinooks!
  • Fully equipped top of the line guided boats, each with bathrooms on board.  Power by 4-stroke Yamaha Motors.

Besides the incredible fishing and luxury lodge another benefit fishing at Langara Island compared to anywhere else in Haida Gwaii is the short run times we have to our fishing grounds, average time from the dock is 5-15 minutes.  Every other salmon fishing lodge has a 45+ minute run before they’re ever fishing! This is a key advantage of our Langara Island fishing program.


You’ll also fish in incredible comfort, as Langara operates a fleet of 17 fully equipped private boats, all with bathrooms on board, so you can be assured a comfortable experience for all members of your group. The Langara Island style of fishing is cutplug mooching, no heavy gear or down riggers, we are salmon fishing in the most traditional way, making for an experience found few places on the BC coast.

The style of fishing is important to note, as no other lodges on the BC coast have a 100% mooching program, most have opted for fishing with heavy downriggers, flashers and lures. At Langara Island Lodge we still use the old school style of salmon fishing, this is by far the funnest way to target big fish! Rods and reels are provided and our friendly experienced guide staff will put you in all the right spots to ensure you have the best chance at a fish of a lifetime. After all, if you’re looking for trophy salmon, there is nowhere better place in the world than Langara Island for that opportunity.

We had an outstanding trip, and if you ever going to Langara, booking thru Yos is definitely the way to go. He looks after you from start to finish, and ensures you have a guide that meets your needs. There are no extra costs, only extra benefits. Will definitely be going back, and booking with Chromer.”
