September Fishing – Saving the Best for Last
One of the best-kept secrets about fishing in Haida Gwaii is that September is one of the best times of year to enjoy a marine wilderness getaway. Late-season fishing at Langara Island has an extra layer of mystique, especially after all the other lodges have closed but summer still hangs in the air and large chinook and coho salmon remain in abundance.
In recent years, more and more guests have been discovering the special feeling of having all those season-long hotspots entirely to themselves. That is why we have kept the fires burning a little longer each year at both North Island Lodge and at The Clubhouse, where we wrap up the season with our reelin’ and rockin’ End of Season Party, featuring live music nightly courtesy of our own house band, The Dock Rockers. This year’s season-ending shindig is scheduled for September 9-12, 2018.
The fishing and the weather held up magnificently in September of 2017, with the northeastern side of Langara Island producing plenty of action, including the large 12-18-pound northern coho that are typically in abundance at this time of year. And the weather? Downright hot around The Clubhouse deck during the last days of the season, with calm seas and easy fishing out on the east side and Langara Rocks areas.
Have a quick look through these scenes of September and find out why a late-season adventure should be of interest to you!
“Hard to believe it is September already here at Langara, but yes, hot sunny day and biting fish of all varieties.”
“Labour day has arrived here at Langara, no rest here though, Chinook are on the bite! Weather has been fantastic for two days, no wind, actually warm out there. Flat calm seas everywhere, Chinooks plentiful on a morning bite. September is proving to be a good fishery, year after year!”
“Hello again from Langara Island, where the spring action is still hot, and the totes are full! Every tote was plugged this am, 130 Salmon hit the dock! Buckets of springs and a decent amount of Coho from the am fish, as well as plenty of Halibut from the east side fishery.”
“Good evening from Langara, yes we are open and not only catching Chinooks, we are catching lots of them! The weather continues to be incredible and with flat seas, sunny skies, and Salmon standing on their tails with mouths open. I can hardly believe this is mid Sept. and we are the only lodge open with Langara Island all to ourselves.”
Don’t forget, guests who have already fished with us during the 2018 season can take advantage of the discounted Client Appreciation trips offered for a return trip on dates here at both The Clubhouse and North Island Lodge. Click here to learn more.
