Just returned from Rugged Point Lodge. The lodge is new as well as the dock's.. I was very satisfied with the accommodation and meals. The Grady White boats where a pleasure to fish from and handled the seas well. Our guides where from the Kyuquot Chesleset people ( Kevin and Willy) and made my trip. We limited out on Spring...

Despite some challenging weather in late October Matt and Kristie made our visit very enjoyable. We visited the beautiful Tashish River which is a drop dead gorgeous natural setting in an isolated Provincial Park. Matt was successful in finding fish on all days for some memorable fly fishing experiences. There is nothing which will grab your attention faster than a... More

I'm of two minds about writing this review. Rugged Point deserves every good thing you could say about the area and the fishing and the people. But.....if too many people want to go I might not get the bookings I and my friends want ( I know I know I shouldn't be like that ). If you do go make... More

Indescribable! Amazing fishing! Spectacular beauty! Guides that get you your limit in every category of fish everyday! Salmon, halibut, ling cod, rock cod, tuna...Dinner conversations are exciting with guests smiling from ear to ear sharing how they got their limit. The food is gourmet and plentiful. The owners Matt & Kristy and their professional staff give you a five star... More

The Rugged Point crew is fantastic. The focus is on getting us our fish to the limits, not logging hours until they can motor back to the lodge. The guides work hard, and are skilled and fun to be around (Kevin, Paul, Tallon (The Executioner), and Matt himself). We had the worst weather is 20 years in 2013, this year... More

I had such a great time last year, I had to return for another trip. Like last year, the fishing was spectacular. We managed limits on all species we were targeting and had such an enjoyable time reeling them in! The guides are so knowledgeable and experienced that we had no problem finding the fish. Plus, this year, we found... More

Most incredible trip ever! Folks at RPL are 1st-class - did everything humanly possible to make sure we had a great time. Excellent meals, friendly staff, food was world-class delicious! Lots to do besides fishing -- beaches, camera paradise! Fishing boats, equipment, and captains who were extremely knowledgeable enabled us to max out our catch in all categories! Can't wait... More

I would sleep in a tent in the rain to have the fishing and scenic experience to be had in Kyuquot, BC. I would let the tent leak to fish with Matt and Kristy's team of guides. I have fished all my life and their team is the best by far. Now add the amazing Rugged Point Lodge to the... More

OMG! Every summer between late July and into late September, albacore tuna show up 12 to 35 miles offshore from Rugged Point Lodge . While the dates are exact, the best tuna fishing usually occurs between the last week of August and the first two weeks of September, weather permitting. Matt and Kristy Guiguet are about the only operators on... More
