Due to medical problems, we’ve had a cancellation in the prime time of our current, 2017 season. We now have availability for 2 guests, 3 nights, arriving Wednesday, August 9th and departing on Saturday, August 12th. We’re offering this trip at the special discounted price of US $3,245/person.

Our 2017 season has started very well. The king salmon have been biting–a good number boated up to 26 lbs. The halibut fishing has also been excellent with all who’ve tried getting their limits.

We are currently taking reservations for the 2017 season. As of this date, there is still excellent availability in June, July, and September. Availability in August is extremely limited. If you’re a saltwater angler, please note that over the past 5 or 6 years, some of the best chinook salmon fishing of the season has occurred in the latter half of June and into early July.

We’re pleased to announce that Blackfish Lodge has been granted the only park use permit for the Hunwadi/Ahnuhati conservancy area. We’re excited to add this to our inventory of exclusive fly-fishing water. With a great estuary fishery for searun cutthroat and a river loaded with salmon from mid-summer to early fall, you’ll enjoy being the only anglers fishing one of the last, pristine, never been logged river valleys on the central B.C. coast.
Many of our guests travel to Blackfish Lodge in the summer months via our direct Seattle floatplane connection. For the 2017 season, this service will begin on June 17th and end September 5th, operating on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.
When the service from Seattle ends, plus other factors (kids back in school, etc.), our guest count often dwindles after that point. BUT….if you’re a freshwater (fly or spinning gear) angler, there is some world-class fishing to be had in September and even into early October. And, you can still get to Blackfish Lodge relatively easily via Vancouver BC and Port Hardy, though with the added hop. The past five years have seen a wonderfully consistent resurgence of the runs of coho and pink salmon into the streams and rivers that we fish. And, of course where there are salmon spawning, there are also hungry rainbow and native cutthroat trout! The fishing in these waters has been spectacular. Our guides have had the times of their lives, but there have been far too few guests around to share it with. Numbers of fish have easily run into the double digits per day per angler. So, consider an early fall freshwater fishing trip. You’ll not regret it.
