Overview

Slam Bang salmon fishing lodge is located on the northwest coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia in in the remote and beautiful Kyuoquot Sound. Our fishing lodge is known for some of best salmon and halibut fishing in BC because of this unique location. Kyuoquot Sound is situated perfectly along the migration path of the Chinook Salmon (Kings) and Coho Salmon (Silvers) heading south.

Our comfortable, floating fishing lodge is tucked into a protected inlet in Duchies’ Cove, only 5 minutes to the open ocean off the West Coast of Vancouver Island. This means less travel time and more time spent fishing. This remote resort is run by husband and wife who have owned the lodge for several years and aim to provide a memorable experience for all.

You will have access to the best fishing on Vancouver Island and also experience a unique and intimate getaway—8 guests maximum! Perfect to bring your family or a small retreat. This means optimal time spent with our professional fishing guides- we provide everything you need for fishing and you plan your day the way you want.

The untouched waters in Kyuquot Sound are very productive with consistent catches of 35-80 lbs Halibut and more all season. We provide you with fully guided fishing—our experienced and seasoned fishing guides are knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. We have several fishing boats and take no more than two people out per boat—this allows one-on-one directed instruction and the best chance at getting a catch (we are happy to accommodate three people per boat if you prefer).

What makes us unique:

  1. Our floating fishing lodge is tucked into a protected inlet in Duchies’ Cove, only 5 minutes to the open ocean off the West Coast of Vancouver Island. Staying at a floating lodge means less travel time and more time spent fishing.
  2. We are a non-pretentious, family-owned business. We aim to provide an affordable and memorable experience for all.
