May 17, 2012 | 917 Views
We are very pleased to report North Island Lodge has arrived safely and dropped anchor in its summer location on Langara Island. With over 25 years of perfecting a sport fishing experience and an unrivaled level of hospitality in the Haida Gwaii, WCFC’s – North Island Lodge is gearing up for the arrival of our first group of anglers for another incredible season to kick off on June 4th.
Travelling over 500 nautical miles along the northern coast to arrive in its summer moorings in the Haida Gwaii, our fearless rig up crew consisting of lodge manager Todd McIntyre, senior guide DJ Shinduke, Nick St gelais and Tanner Smith have been kept busy hooking up beer kegs ………………… in preparation of our guests.
Guides have reported fantastic fishing with healthy clusters of bate holding off points throughout Langara Island. Coming off one of North Islands better years in terms of catch numbers and size we are expecting to see 2012 become another banner year. The demand for the WCFC experience has been evident in the strength of our bookings. NIL is currently sitting at 95% occupancy with only a few select spots remaining for the early June Chinook run. For last minute trip options please see our SNC club link below.
For those who don’t know me I will be guiding trips while also maintaining our blog throughout the season at North Island Lodge. In the off season I work full time for the WCFC as the sales & client services representative based in Calgary Alberta. Feel free to contact me with any questions or inquiries!
I look forward to guiding our guests and meeting everyone who have already reserved their dates for the 2012 season. Remember to bookmark North Islands blog link as this will be updated with fishing reports and the adventures of our guests, guides and staff alike.
