Fishing grounds
teaming with fish,
not crowds

Luckily, there are some places in the world that are still untouched and largely inaccessible. Ole's Hakai Pass Fishing Lodge and salmon fishing grounds are accessible only by floatplane so you don't have to worry about fighting off the crowds here.

Always close to the action in ideal water conditions, spend more time with lines in the water and less traveling.

Our Location

Roughing it,
        in Style

You’re in the Canadian wilderness but your experience will be anything but wild. Ole's floating fishing lodge is spacious, well designed and anchored in a secluded bay. Your private accommodations, each with private bath, includes individual beds, daily maid service and wifi enabled.

Our chef prepares freshly cooked and mouth-watering meals like halibut, beer battered fish & chips with sea salt and vinegar, seared prime rib with scalloped potatoes, pickled beet, asparagus and organic greens, herb roasted and ricotta stuffed chicken, BBQ ribs, salmon sashimi, Indian candy, halibut ceviche — all paired with fine wines.

After a long day fishing, soak in the hot tub, lie in the hammock, paddle on a stand-up paddle board, or lounge on the deck with a frosty draft beer while recounting the day’s adventures.

The Experience

Reel in. Unwind.

From arrival to departure, we’ve thought of every detail. Long before you even get here, we’ve prepared your fishing license, Helly Hansen jacket (w/ PFD), bib overalls and boots so you can start fishing sooner.

Your Ole's Fishing Charter Adventure begins in Vancouver, British Columbia with a breathtaking two hour flight over the Canadian wilderness.

Upon arrival, your bags are whisked away, your license looked after and lunch awaits. Then it’s off to the dry room where your wet weather clothing is reserved specifically for you. Once suited, our fish master conducts fishing school teaching you the proper way to bait, hook set and land your catch. Then it’s off to the fishing grounds and not before long before you’ve boated your first salmon.
