As if a trip to Langara wasn’t thrilling enough.

Special Events in 2024

Langara Fishing Lodge plays host to a variety of exciting events each season. Whether you are a serious angler interested in competing for serious money, or a father-and-son wanting to enjoy the added excitement of some great prizes, there is an event for everyone on our calendar.

32nd Annual $185,000 Haida Gwaii Tournament

June 1-4, 2024

Our most popular event of the season features big money prizes, plus the opportunity to participate in our salmon conservation efforts.

Limited to only 66 rods, the Haida Gwaii Tournament offers great fishing for great prizes at great odds.

Cash prizes range from $85,000 for the largest salmon overall, $25,000 for second overall, down to $5,000 for largest daily salmon.

Plus we have over $35,000 worth of draw prizes (one for every contestant), including a return trip to Langara in 2025.

This event features a unique ‘tag-and-release’ format – salmon netted by contestants are passed off to officials on the water, then quickly measured, tagged, and released – so it’s also an opportunity to participate in our salmon research efforts. Each year a number of our tags are recovered, in rivers ranging from the Skeena in Northern B.C. to the Columbia in the Pacific Northwest, providing valuable data on salmon migration and growth rates.

Family Fishing Derby

August 20-24, 2024

The Family Fishing Tournament is an event for any and all members of the family: Fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, brothers and sisters, uncles and nephews – any pairing or group of family members qualifies for this event at no additional cost.

Taking place in late summer, this event features fishing for all ages, with both chinook and coho salmon in abundance, along with spectacular whale watching.

Lots of terrific prizes are up for grabs, including a return trip to Langara for the winning team!

Lady Anglers Fishing Tournament

August 24-27, 2024

This event is the perfect introduction to the wonders of Langara for both serious and aspiring female anglers.

Over $10,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded, including unique Haida jewellery and a return trip to next year’s event for the overall winner.

Join us for a relaxing four-day weekend of great fishing, friendship, food and service, amidst the spectacular scenery and wildlife of Langara Island
