Overview

There is no other British Columbia fishing lodge which compares to King Pacific Lodge. Our lodge at Milbanke Sound is a BC salmon lodge created as a testament to the friendship of the many anglers and friends George and Lisa Cuthbert have come to know over the past twenty-five years.

We are a family operated business and our interest in exceeding guests expectations goes beyond a corporate objective. As owners, we’re on site, engaged and are sincerely committed to our guests experience.

Your time and money is valuable and we respect both! If you’ve been searching for the absolute best Chinook and Coho salmon fishing trip, in the most spectacular setting and with the highest degree of personalized service.

Whether you have the experience of one of our friendly and professional guides—or are starting out fresh—we’re here to help.

  • Fish from our incredible 20ft Ironwood boats outfitted with everything you need.
  • Enjoy any of our three levels of expert assistance from dawn til dusk. You”re here to fish—we’re here to ensure your success.
  • You’ll be using the highest quality Herring and Anchovy baits. Lures, tackle and fishing equipment including ‘Islander’ reels.
  • Your catch will be custom cut and prepared for your convenience including vacuum packaging.

We continue to build and refine our fishing lodge and product offering including:

  • Contemporary 34 guest floating fishing and adventure lodge.
  • Convenient packages including round-trip airfare from Vancouver, unlimited fishing, delicious meals.
  • The best fishing fleet on the coast!
  • And most of all—a wonderful, welcoming staff including many from local communities.

What makes us unique:

  1. Our “instructed” fishing package provides the best of both worlds: The freedom to fish self guided on your own schedule, and the value of on-water assistance shared by one of our friendly instructors. Each full day, your on-water instructor will be available for a full 5 hours of fishing. Typically, each instructor is assigned two groups of anglers and two boats. Their time is shared accordingly based on the level of angler experience.
  2. As a family operated business King Pacific Lodge strives to exceed guest expectations by going beyond a corporate objective. The owners of the Lodge are on-site and engaged, sincerely committed to providing the very best experience for their guests.

    Details

    Prior to Your Trip

    Guests should arrive at Vancouver’s South Terminal at 8am for check in and our aircraft will be departing at 9am. Look for the King Pacific Lodge Banner within the South Terminal Building. Flight time is 1hour 20minutes to Bella Bella. Helicopters will whisk you into the lodge after a short loading time in Bell Bella.

    Upon arrival at the lodge, you will be greeted by our crew and your bags will be taken to your room. Enjoy the view, a quick meal, and be prepared to attend a quick orientation to review fishing and safety related items. We’ll have you on the water as quickly as possible.

    During Your Stay

    The typical day will start with an early morning wake up. (Did we mention 4:30am?) Not to worry, if a little later works better for you the fish will wait and the coffee will stay hot.

    A hot breakfast will be served starting one hour prior to daybreak. Boats are typically off the dock just prior to daybreak and as soon as it’s safe to navigate.

    You may pack a lunch and several snacks as you may choose to stay on the water over lunch. We’ll stay in touch and lunch will always be available from 11:30 to 1:00 at the lodge. We’ll even deliver!

    After an awesome day on the water, we’ll look forward to seeing you for dinner. Each trip our Chef will work to determine the best time for dinner based on the premium fishing times. Look for some flexibility in this schedule between 5 and 8pm.

    How to Pack

    Our flights are very convenient and our partner carriers are extremely careful with you and your belongings.

    We ask your baggage be soft sided and limited to no more than 25 pounds per person. Should you have a need for more, please let us know in advance and we’ll try to help.

    Upon departure, we’ll do our best to ensure all of your catch arrives with you in Vancouver. The waterproof fish boxes will weigh no more than 50 pounds each. Many guests choose to have their catch custom processed and we’ll arrange to ship this fish directly to the cannery or smokehouse on your behalf.

    What to Pack

    • Layered Clothing
    • Warm Socks
    • Comfortable Shoes
    • Swimsuit or Shorts
    • Sunscreen and Sunglasses
    • Prescription medications
    • Seasickness remedies
    • Camera, film and batteries
