This is a remote fishing lodge, and power is via a diesel generator. Guests are housed in the six cabins. The lodge can accommodate four groups of four and two groups of two making this a nice lodge for a small group.

Fishing with Island Point Lodge

This is a self-guided lodge, which is beneficial for fishermen because you get to set your own schedule. The local area offers excellent saltwater fishing for Pacific Halibut, all five species of Pacific Salmon (saltwater and freshwater.) There is also an amazing selection of Cutthroat Trout, Dolly Varden, and Steelhead that you can target with either a spinner rod or fly rod. Guests have a variety of fishing methods from Trolling to shore fishing.

Fishing Peak Season

The King Salmon are available May through July. In early May, the Kings begin to stage offshore, and their presence attacks the Halibut. May-July is excellent Halibut and Kind Salmon fishing. By mid-June, the Red or Sockeye and the Chum Salmon are staging and their runs last through mid-August until September. Mid-June continues to be a great time for saltwater fishing. By early July, the Red and Chum Salmon are entering the rivers so the options for fishing change. Guests can now pick and choose from saltwater or freshwater daily fishing trips. By mid-July, the Silvers are staging, and the Halibut fishing remains good. By August, the Silver Salmon are in the rivers, and freshwater salmon fishing remains good through the end of October.

The Halibut are available from May through October. They are drawn in by the salmon. A little trick to catching Halibut is to chum with salmon heads. Halibut have a weakness for Salmon heads. The saltwater fishing here is good. There are plenty of rockfish, cods, and even the predatory Ling Cod is available. For freshwater fishing, consider targeting the Dolly Varden, which is often associated with the Silver Salmon run. Dolly Varden love salmon row. If you are fly fishing, consider a range of flies from bright orange (fresh row,) pink (recently spawned roe,) to a Popsicle fly ( aging roe,) to chartreuse (buried roe.) Black egg sucking leech patterns work well too. Nice bright spinners and spoons in these same colors help with those fishermen who prefer the spin caster reels.
