Canadian Owned & Operated Fishing Lodge
For Matt and Kristy Guiguet, operating the Fishing Lodge to the highest standard is their life’s passion and Kyuquot Sound is home. Kristy was born and raised in Kyuquot and her family has been in the area for over 90 years. She grew up commercial fishing on her parents salmon troller the “Northern Bounty” which is still in Kyuquot and is one of the last commercial boats in the area. Kristy ran the local store and post office for a few years until she met Matt, who was born and raised in Victoria, BC.
Matt spent his summers fishing in Bamfield as a kid, mostly bucktailing for Coho commercially on his grandfather’s 17ft clinker. Matt started in the sportfishing industry with Oak Bay Marine Group in the 1990’s, eventually buying his own charter fishing boat and a steelhead guiding business. He worked in places such as Haida Gwaii, Tofino, Gold river, and more before starting Rugged Point Lodge with Kristy in his favorite place in Canada: Kyuquot.
