Each cabin sleeps up to seven people, but the lodge has a maximum 15 guest occupancy rate, making this a wonderful place for small groups. The main lodge is where guests gather for meals and to share experiences. Expect comfortable beds, modern bathrooms, and basic furnishing. The lodge supplies all bedding.

Fishing with the Green Rocks Wilderness Lodge

This is a self-guided fishing lodge and guests are assigned an 18 foot Lund boat. The lodge supplies all poles and most equipment, including bait for your entire fishing adventure. You set your own fishing schedule. Your catch will be filleted, vacuum sealed, and frozen by the lodge. For those who want a bit of shade, the lodge offers 20 foot covered boats as an upgrade option. A bagged lunch provided. Guests enjoy a full breakfast and outstanding dinner at the lodge.

Fishing for Salmon and Halibut

The Salmon fishing here is unbelievable. All five species of Pacific Salmon are available practically as you leave the dock. The King Salmon limit here is two Kings over 28 inches and one that is under 28 inches. King Salmon run from the second week of May through the end of July.

The Red and Chum Salmon run from mid-June until mid- to late-August. Red Salmon, also known as Sockeye, have been deemed as the best eating Pacific Salmon. While the Kings are often huge, if you want good salmon to take home, think about the Reds. Silver Salmon are an amazing fish. They run from the last week of July through the month of September. If you want a true sporting fish, then the Silver Salmon is the one to target. They fight, breach, and pretty much give you the fin.

Halibut Fishing in the Southeast is awesome. The little ones, those under 100 pounds are called Chickens. The big ones, those over a 100 pounds are called Barn Doors. The Pacific Halibut here range from 15-300 pounds. Some lucky fisherman managed a 485 pound Pacific Halibut in the Southeast last year. If you go salmon fishing, and you should, save the heads. Halibut love salmon heads. Use the scraps from the dock crew's filleting to chum for Halibut. Find a nice spot, drop anchor, chum the salmon bits, and sit back and relax. The Halibut are on the way.
