Fishing Report: May 27, 2013

Our 23rd Annual Haida Gwaii Tournament is wrapping up today. Over the past 3 days, 44 anglers have been competing for $185,000 in cash and prizes, including a grand prize of $85,000 for the largest salmon!

This is a tag-and-release event: netted salmon are passed off to officials who quickly measure, tag and release the fish. Many of these tagged salmon are later retrieved in rivers and streams all along the west coast of North America, providing valuable data on salmon migration and growth rates.

Tournament contestants have been enjoying Langara at its best, with spectacular weather, abundant fishing, and plenty of whale sightings around the fishing grounds.

The past two days have been enjoyed under sunny skies and light winds, with the whole island open for fishing. Action has been taking place in most areas around the island and our tournament officials have been quite busy tagging and releasing salmon, including 8 Chinook measuring over 30 pounds.

Early morning has definitely been the best time of the day this week. Areas such as Chanal Reef, Gunia and Boulder Points have all seen good action in the first few hours of the day.

Andrews and Cohoe Point have also been quite productive, and Lacy Island has probably been the best spot overall.

Boats fishing in and around Parry Pass are hooking into quite a few Halibut while salmon fishing. These incidental catches were very common last season and it will be great if this continues this season.

Both Humpback and Killer whales are present around the island right now, along with the usual assortment of Bald Eagles and sea birds.

Here are the current tournament leaders, as of 5pm today:
Salmon (largest tagged and released): 37.5 by Steve Milford
Halibut (target weight, closest to 46 pounds): 45 pounds by Martin Fell.

We'll be posting the final results tomorrow.

"What a great trip"
Review Created On: Nov 03, 2017
Overall Rating:
This was a fantastic trip. The fishing was absolutely incredible, we went home with our limit of salmon, halibut, and rockfish. After a hard day of fishing the staff were very welcoming and the food was what you would see in a high end restaurant. I will defiantly be back sometime in the near future!

"Fisherman's Dream Come True "Langara Fishing Lodge""
Review Created On: Sep 25, 2017
Overall Rating:
Being used to roughing it on fishing trips, Langara was the total luxury 1st class experience for me. Everything from the accommodation, food (the pig roast was brilliant), boats and gear were all top notch. All the staff were excellent particularly our guide Matt who got us into some fantastic world class fishing fun. This is the place memories are made from and I'm glad I didn't pass up this opportunity with my buddy and his sons.

"Amazing is a New Normal re the Langara Fishing Lodge Experience"
Review Created On: Jun 13, 2016
Overall Rating:
I just returned from my seventh experience with the Egan/Husky fishing adventure. High seas and another amazing and unique experience is what I have learned to expect as a normal for this adventure. Anchored by wonderful customer service, Bill and Suze run a fine operation in this remote and wild environment unique in Canada. The scenery makes this vacation experience truly remarkable. It changes every trip and I am looking forward to my next opportunity to return to the Langara Fishing Lodge
