QCL is an unbelievable experience that I would recommend to anyone, even if they are not in to fishing. The grounds and facilities are top notch. Everything is exceptionally well-crafted, appealing to the eye and creates an environment of relaxation after a beautiful day of fishing. If you are looking for something a little more lively, the Bellringer is a ton of fun! Seeing the fish weighed as they come in and socializing with the other guests wile enjoying great drinks and appies was a highlight each day. The fishing guides are exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful, ensuring that your time on the water is productive and fun. The food is world class...more what you would expect from a 5-star restaurant as opposed to a fishing lodge in a remote location. While everything at QCL was great, I must say that the service is what really sets it apart for me. The staff are all wonderful, attentive and fun and make what is already an outstanding experience even better. Kudos to the team at QCL and thank you for an exceptional weekend!

I just returned from a visit where we hosted 40 people to include key customers and employees.

I have been blessed in my life and career to travel many parts of the globe and stay at the finest places.

QCL sets a standard at every touchpoint. The staff in every function to a person delivers the highest level of care, kindness, and concern for your experience while at QCL.

This team is quite literally well trained but all manage to still be their real selves while serving. Each brings a smile, knowledge and a personal touch that ensures your visit will be flawless and memorable.

I cannot say enough good things about QCL. Great fishing comes from the natural location ( and amazing guides) a good experience all the way around is a choice of the QCL team. Well done.

The fishing is awesome especially if you get a guide that is experienced and knows how to bring in the fish or where to go to catch them. We caught anywhere from 20-25 salmon per day (can't keep it all but it is fun regardless). Make sure you dress warm as it doesn't get much higher then 15 inland and colder on the water. The owners are focused on creating a world class experience and they will be there to greet you when you arrive and thank you for coming upon your departure, great personal touch. The bar and restaurant staff are friendly and always willing to go the extra mile. Food is great with tons of options. If you ever get a chance to go, DO IT! You will not regret it.

We had a wonderful time at QCL. The service is outstanding and the attention to detail is second to none. The chefs were diligent about our daughter’s food allergy and we had no worries about anything she was eating. The management was always visible and available if you had a question or concern. Our fishing guide was so personable and friendly. He was great with our kids and made learning a new skill so fun for all of us!

Amazing operation from arriving at airport to departure. The lodge is well staffed to exceed expectations and they exceeded my expectations in every aspect. Our guide was awesome (Ky) and our experience with bartenders, support staff and restaurant staff was over the top

Wow, just wow. You are taken care of from the first minute you arrive until the last minute you leave. I didn’t know what to expect however, what ever expectations I did have, were exceeded exponentially. They run this facility with military precision with the goal of getting you fishing as quickly and comfortably as possible.

Well done QCL!

I traveled to Queen Charlotte Lodge (QCL) on Haida Gwaii for a 4-day fishing trip with one of my sons. QCL handled all of the travel arrangements superbly. The location of the Lodge on Haida Gwaii is fabulous - a true remote country experience to an iconic location. Lodging rustic but fully adequate. Meals fabulous. Lodge environment warm, engaging, comfortable. Service spectacular. Fishing guide excellent.

This was our third trip to QCL and, once again we were delighted with all aspects of this fishing lodge. Beautiful place with excellent staff, equipment and fishing! We have been to at least 5 other fishing lodges and QCL rates as the best in our opinion. The water is usually calm and the offshore run for ground fish is mercifully short!

Hi Tom, As Bill pointed out above, the federal department of Fisheries and Oceans manages the fishery. In our fishery an angler can retain 4 salmon per day, 2 of which can be Chinook, the balance would likely be Coho, Pink or Chum salmon. You may also retain 1 halibut,(size restrictions apply), 2 Lingcod and 4 Rockfish. We have a possession limit which is the total amount of fish you are allowed to retain during your stay. The possession limit is 2 daily limits on each of the above.

What is the weather like? What should a person pack?
Answer from Duane F
Maple Ridge, Canada1 contribution
The weather here in Haida Gwaii is generally cooler than wherever our guests are coming from! This week in early June the daytime temperatures are around 13-15 degrees C and it can feel cooler than that on the water. Pack layers - a snug Smartwool base layer with a polar fleece jacket or pullover is good. We provide good warm waterproof gear for your time on the water. You'll wear comfortable stretch rain pants in the boat so again a fleece or wool legging or sweatpant is a good choice for underneath.

Thanks for asking! Yes we do have complimentary WiFi throughout the property for our guests.

Certainly most people focus on the fishing and being on the water. There is a short hiking trail near the lodge and sometimes people will explore the shorelines and tide pools out near the fishing grounds. As for kayaks, there are 2 tandems and a single. Guests who wish to fish a little less will take a morning off from fishing and explore the estuaries by kayak.
