    Nootka Island Lodge on Nootka Sound is truly "Natural British Columbia". Wildlife abounds and the scenery is breathtaking. The chance to battle Chinook (King) Salmon up to 60 pounds, or the fighting Coho (Silver) in excess of 15 pounds, awaits the ardent fisherman at Nootka Island Lodge. Although salmon is our specialty, there are also ling cod, rock cod and halibut.

    Thank you for considering Nootka Island Lodge for your sportfishing trip. The serenity and seclusion of uncrowded Nootka Island Lodge provides a paradise for fishing! We were the first lodge on the island so we are the closest to the fishing grounds—just a short 1 to 5 mile commute!

    Along with lots of fish, you will see an abundance of wildlife including whales, bear, deer, bald eagles, otters, and a variety of sea birds.

    About the Guided/Self-Guided Fishing Packages

    This package is for the fishermen who want to do it themselves. Your group can share the fishing between the guided and self guided boats. Our guides will dial you in to the areas hottest fishing locations, so if this is your first time to our lodge our new program will bring you up to speed on exactly where to fish right away and provide you with the proper fishing gear and what techniques work to catch fish. Remember you will be dividing your fishing time with our guides and time on your own, so you can make the determination on how to split up the combinations yourself. Just let us know at the start of each day what you would like to do and we will see that it gets done.

    Many of our clients want to bait their own hooks, run the downriggers catch and net their own fish by themselves. This package also makes the trip more affordable for the budget minded guests. You also have the option to upgrade to a Deluxe package for an extra $250 PP, which enters you in our 2020 season Big Fish free trip derby, all the other Deluxe upgrade benefits, including vac packing your fish and enters you in our free trip drawings.

    Please remember that this package is for experienced fishermen and experienced small craft boat operators with previous knowledge and expertise in both fishing and boat handling operation.

    Each boat will host 2 anglers per boat each day, this means you have the option to rotate your group as you see fit, so everyone gets a chance at a guided fishing day while also enjoying the savings of self-guided pricing. We have priced this combination package to be more favorably priced than purchasing the packages separately.
