Langara Fishing Adventures

Langara Island Lodge

The Langara area record is a 78-pound king salmon. Mooching or slow trolling with herring is the preferred method at Langara; plugs or spoons are also effective. Success can be found in virtually any location around the Island, and at depths from near surface to 300 plus feet. Kings are available all season long.
An increasing number of anglers are enjoying fly fishing for silvers in the ocean waters around Langara Island. Silvers/coho begin to appear in early June through September.
Halibut and Lingcod are generally abundant in the Langara Island area all season long, and are found in a variety of locations, at depths ranging from 60 to 150 feet near shore, to 300-500 feet off shore. Gear consists of stout rod and star drag reel with herring, squid, or salmon head for bait. The Langara area halibut record is 307 pounds. Current size restrictions limit anglers to retaining Halibut no larger than 65-70 pounds. Lingcod are found in numerous locations around Langara Island in depths from 50 to 500 feet. When initially hooked, they fight similar to salmon. Gear includes salmon or halibut rods, with jigs or herring as bait. Lingcod are an extremely durable fish with a very high survival rate when released.
