Just announced! Our fishing waters at Masset in Haida Gwaii are now open to 2-Chinook salmon per day for the entire 2018 season…and the Coho’s are here now so 4-salmon/ day limits are possible!
…some nice catches and testimonials of our 2017 season
We pursue the many runs of open ocean pacific salmon arriving at Haida Gwaii on their coastal migration to the thousands of spawning rivers and creeks all along the BC coast, Alaska, Washington, Oregon and California. These fish are prime ocean fresh and instinctively feeding hard to prepare for their “natal homing” journey, at this point they are as big and strong as they will ever be! The fishing here can be unbelievable, especially from the months of May to September.
Chinook (King) salmon up to 50 lbs or more can be caught all season long and 20+ lbs are common. Coho (Silver) salmon are plentiful and feeding hard, they just get bigger and bigger through the summer. Halibut are also abundant here, especially in the regulations allowable size limits… so getting “keepers” happens often for us. Some of the most productive shallow and deep sea Halibut fishing on the north coast is right here, and we know how to catch them!
Wildfish sportfishing charters invites you to join us at the beautiful and wild Pacific waters of North Graham Island, Haida Gwaii, formerly known as the Queen Charlotte Islands, the 40 mile coast from Tow hill to Masset to Langara island is home to some of the finest saltwater sport fishing in the world.

Our fast boat will have you to our best fishing spots within 20-30 minutes, so you’ll be having a long day full of exciting fishing…not a day of long slow boat rides! When we arrive at those great fishing spots, don’t expect it to be crowded either…it never is, sometimes the only other boats around are from the nearby lodges and a few other local charters. That’s right, we fish the hottest areas that made the local lodges famous, like “QCL Queen Charlotte Lodge”, “Peregrine Lodge”, “Naden Lodge” and “Escott Sportfishing”.
