You’ll see stunning Canada wilderness scenery, abundant wildlife, and, of course, have great fishing.

When you reserve your guided fishing trip with us there are no preset fishing hours. We fish each day as conditions and your preferences guide us. Your stay at Blackfish Lodge can be tailored to your interests and schedule. Chris and Hannah Bennett, your congenial hosts and owners since founding Blackfish Lodge in 1989, will treat you to great food and hospitality during your visit. Personal service is assured by the limited number (maximum 6-8) of guests that we take at a time.
Accessible by boat or floatplane only, Blackfish Lodge is truly a place of seclusion, quiet and contemplation. So, whether you are fly fishing for salmon or trout in a secluded Canadian river, lake, or stream, fishing for trophy salmon in the protected waters of the surrounding islands, sightseeing, or going whale watching or bird watching, Blackfish Lodge’s dedication and over 25 years of experience ensure that you will have a truly enjoyable and successful stay. For quality wilderness angling, there’s no better British Columbia fishing lodge for fishing, nature watching, and congeniality than Blackfish Lodge.
The local streams, lakes, and rivers are 100% catch-and-release and are, indeed, some of the most beautiful, productive, and unpressured waters you’ve never heard of. We have water and fishing opportunities to satisfy every skill level. Experienced anglers will appreciate the variety and challenges of the different streams and waters that we fish.
Located within the southern confines of the new Great Bear Rainforest preserve and framed by the rugged mountains of the Coast Range to the east and beautiful Vancouver Island to the west, the wilderness area that surrounds Blackfish Lodge is spectacular.
Vertical rock walls plunge into the ocean and 5,000+ foot mountains brood over inlets and fjords. Along with fishing in BC, a rich variety of wildlife is experienced each day of your visit. Untouched streams tumble through lovely rich forests to join the saltwater. The scent of cedar is borne on the breezes.
