Fishing and Species
These 100% catch and release streams, lakes, and rivers are, indeed, some of the most beautiful, productive, and unpressured waters you’ve never heard of. You can go by truck to some fine lakes and streams on nearby Gilford Island. Fish small streams or bigger water, dry flies, or wet. Depending on the time of year, you’ll find yourself hooking summer or winter run steelhead, cutthroat trout, dolly varden char, a few rainbow trout, and chinook, silver, and pink salmon. If larger water is on your menu, you’ll want to take the full-day Wakeman River float trip. Blackfish Lodge is one of only two lodges authorized to fish these legendary Class 2 Classified Waters.

Founded in 1989, Blackfish Lodge is a charming fly-in or boat-in floating lodge located in Canada, about 30 miles east of the northern end of Vancouver Island. Blackfish Lodge is in a remote wilderness within the new Great Bear Rainforest preserve, so it has very low angling pressure.

Combining the best of a British Columbia fly fishing lodge and traditional saltwater salmon fishing, they offer a wide range of fishing opportunities for all experience levels. Whether you are fly fishing for salmon, trout or steelhead in a secluded river, lake or stream, or fishing for trophy salmon in the protected waters of the surrounding islands, Blackfish Lodge’s dedication and over 20 years of experience ensure that you will have an enjoyable and rewarding stay.

Your stay at Blackfish Lodge can be tailored to your interests and schedule. Chris and Hannah Bennett, your congenial hosts and owners, are year-round residents of the lodge. You’ll be treated to great food and hospitality during your visit. Personal service is assured by the limit of 6 guests at a time. For quality wilderness angling, nature watching and hospitality, there’s no better place than Blackfish Lodge.
