COVID UPDATE: WE ARE OPENING MID JULY TO EARLY SEPTEMBER! WE ARE ONLY OPERATING 3 GUIDE BOATS FOR OUR 2020 COVID SEASON.
Rugged Point Lodge is located in Kyuquot Sound on the northwestern shore of Vancouver Island, minutes away from the continental shelf, the Salmon Highway and our inshore fishery. Salmon, halibut and lingcod are only a cast away.
Rugged Point Lodge can get you to the best salmon fishing on the west coast of Vancouver Island.
We fish for Chinook at Spring Island, only two miles from our dock. Kyuquot Ridge is also nearby, featuring reefs, rockpiles and gravel bars where salmon swim year-round. We can also get you to the “Salmon Highway” – 50 Fathom Edge – where migrating Chinook first head inland on their way to their home rivers.
Our guides use a variety of techniques in different seasons to help you hook into British Columbia’s most prized catch.
There’s always salmon in Kyuquot Sound.
Join expert guides, benefit from local knowledge and go deep in pursuit of the largest flatfish in the world.
Our guides have numerous halibut fishing spots ranging from 130 – 300 ft deep.
We anchor while halibut fishing and all of our boats are set up with a third downrigger for a chum bag, two speed reels and top of the line Okuma 6’ 6” rods.
We aim to catch the nicest halibut we can within the legal size limits.
Halibut fishing is extremely productive in Kyuquot Sound!
