Year-round fly-fishing fun on the Columbia River!

Does your favourite angler love fly-fishing? Then you must send them on a guided fishing charter on the Columbia River! This is an adventure that can be enjoyed anytime, year-round and it’s considered one of the best tailwater (located just downstream from a dam) fisheries in the world.

Nestled in the scenic and beautiful West Kootenays, near Castlegar and Trail BC, the Columbia River is HUGE with almost 30 kilometres of untouched river to fish. From the Hugh Keenleyside damn on the Arrow Lakes to the border with the US. The Columbia is full of  trout, the landlocked descendants of the Steelhead that used to travel north up the river into Canada before the construction of the Coulee Dam in 1942.

The Columbia River is open for fishing year-round with two incredible fisheries on the river: Rainbow Trout and Walleye. Rainbow is a native species to the river and the Walleye is an invasive species and both can be caught year-round.

Anglers can look forward to fishing for most trout sized anywhere between 16” -22”, with some as big as 30” or more!

Choose your adventure – try your hand at landing incredible Rainbow Trout or opt for a spectacular Walleye fishing charter.

More than just fishing. Rugged Point Lodge offers incredible life experiences – the ultimate romantic getaway or vacation

You may think that Rugged Point Lodge on breathtaking Kyuquot Sound is all about the fishing… it sure is. But, it can also be the ideal spot for an incredible romantic getaway or vacation with friends and family vacation!

Of course, the fishing is nothing short of world-class. Remote and largely untouched, these Northwest Coast of Vancouver Island waters offer the best in sport fishing.
Beautifully situated on Kyuquot Sound, on the edge of the continental shelf, some of the most productive fishing grounds anywhere lie only a couple of miles from our dock.

Here, in what is referred to as the Salmon Super Highway, massive schools of migrating Chinook Salmon, Halibut, Lingcod, and Sea Bass, offer a veritable guarantee of making the catch of a lifetime.

An ultimate life experience – the vacation of a lifetime!

Despite being a world-class fishing lodge, there’s more to Rugged Point Lodge than just the extraordinary fishing. We host people from all over the world in search of a retreat from their day-to-day. Individuals, couples, and families come looking for an ideal place where they can enjoy peaceful quality time amidst the natural tranquillity of Canada’s west coast.
