SALT WATER FISHING- The prized Chinook, noted for its size, fight, and taste, heads the list of most sought salmon. Nanook will prepare your fish for dinner, prepare it for shipment home, or assist in release back to the wild. Beginning in March, Nanook guides follow Pacific Salmon, residents or transients that are at various stages of their two- to seven- year life cycles. Using large covered boats, you will angle the "Inside Passage". The ride is smooth, the water is tame, and the conveniences are close at hand on Stuart Island. While fishing, you will experience the spectacular scenery of British Columbia. Towering peaks plummet into deep blue waters. There are spectacular views of wildlife at every turn. In addition to salmon fishing, bottom fish for lingcod and halibut.
FLY FISHING- For many, many generations, thousands of Pink salmon have returned to the Phillips River to spawn as their two-year life cycle comes to an end. This occurrence happens only in even numbered years for the “pinks” and all within the months of July, August and September. As many as 500,000 fish will enter this beautiful river providing constant activity for anglers. Coho, Chinook, Chum and Sockeye are present too. Only 25 minutes from Nanook Lodge by boat, the Phillips River is accessed by using club-cab pickups that can maneuver the parallel logging road. Usually Nanook guests will ocean fish in the morning, then spend the afternoon either fly-fishing or spin casting in the Phillips. Waders are optional as angling can be done from the bank or in shorts too. Fly-fishers need to bring their own rods. Flies and spinners are sold at the lodge.
