Carved into the rugged coastline of British Columbia 250 nautical miles north of Vancouver, Legacy Lodge sits within the Great Bear Rainforest in the protected waters of Pendleton Bay at the mouth of the famed Rivers Inlet. Legacy Lodge is more than world class fishing; it's about friends sharing the adventure of exploring North America's last wilderness, experiencing humpback and killer whales, dolphins, eagles and a night sky full of stars so bright they'll keep you awake! Legacy Lodge was hand crafted on large floats from indigenous materials. The two story guest building includes 7 private guest rooms and 6 suites which nicely accommodates 20 guests. Legacy recently expanded with two additional guest buildings offering five additional suites, accommodating 10 guests. Guests enjoy spectacular views and deluxe accommodations with private baths and rooms appointed with luxurious linens. The lounge features a rustic bar with a fireplace seating and dining for 30 guests. Legacy Lodge provides three distinct seasons of fishing. Traditional salmon fishing for Chinook and Coho salmon are available from July through September in calm, secluded waters throughout Rivers Inlet. Halibut, Yellow Eye and Lingcod are also plentiful in these waters all summer. Heli-fishing for huge northern Coho salmon (20 lbs. plus) within the pristine rivers of the BC coastline is available during September and October, and wild Steelhead fishing from helicopters are available during April and May. Legacy Lodge offers exceptional fly fishing for Pacific salmon on the calm, protected waters of Rivers Inlet. The dense populations of Coho and Chinook in the waters surrounding Legacy Lodge are aggressive, and will take your fly..... and 200 feet of backing off your reel in seconds! Known around the globe for its magnificent scenery and unparalled salmon fishing, the waters of Rivers Inlet teem with some of the largest Coho and Chinook Salmon in the world. In fact, more 50 to 60 pound Chinook salmon are caught in this fjord-like inlet each year than in any other area in British Columbia. Full of energy and fight, these salmon can battle for hours, over incredible distances. Rivers Inlet lies within the Great Bear Rainforest, the planets last large expanses of coastal temperate rainforest. At 8+ million acres, it is 5 times the size of Banff National Park and represents one of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet. With an unmatched biological output of 500 tons per acre, it's 40 percent greater than tropical rain forests.

Attention to detail sums up the legacy adventure from the moment you arrive till the time you fly out on the goose seaplane. This was my second time and the fishing was great. Guides and staff aim to please. Food is excellent and gear is first class. Bucktailing was not as good as previous year but the coho fever is still there with new stories to tell. Flat ocean water and only 20 minutes to the fishing grounds staff bring out breakfast and lunch. The biggest problem with this place is you are now spoiled and can not wait to return!!!! Kudos to Phil and his Staff Steve J sonora Ca

Third visit to Legacy Lodge was best ever. Each time we have been there we have been received like family and have enjoyed “catching up” with our Legacy Lodge family. The staff is absolutely first class, the accommodations could not be more comfortable, and the food is way over the top! We enjoy meeting new folks and have become longtime pals with some. For a five star plus experience, this is the trip of a lifetime!

Four men (1978 Palos Verdes High School graduates) decided on this lodge for the nice boats and calm waters within Rivers Inlet. Stayed at Pacific Gateway Hotel. Close to South Terminal where you fly out. Before flying out be sure to visit Steveston a small fishing village (C$15.00 cab ride). Shops and restaurants on the waterfront. Fish and Chips at PaJo's highly recommend. Free shuttle from hotel to South Terminal. 5:30PM flight to Port Hardy on a DeHavilland -8 then to lodge in a 1941 Grumman G-21 Goose. At lodge we were not disappointed. Very nice with room with their own bath. Briefly they told us about the equipment. Being experienced I had no problem with this but if not I may have had issues. First day one of the boats far out had to return to the dock to get life vests. No staff to help get fitted in morning so you fend for yourself. Fishing was good and we all limited out. Used Herring as cut plugs 2 hooks and a 6 oz. weight. Troll at 2.5 MPH. No Halibut caught. 25 fishermen 6 Springs caught (largest 24 lbs.) Rest were Coho's. A lot of them. Our group caught 3 of the 6 Springs. Two woman (Laura and a very pretty brunette) served us, ran the bar and clean the rooms. They are nothing short of amazing! WI-Fi (you need password). No Jacuzzi or exercise equipment. Average tip $300.00 per person for trip. Staff not allowed to keep tips given directly. Paid at end to Phill who divides them up. Great boats, food, rooms, calm waters and fishing too! Highly recommend!

Our 4th trip to Legacy Lodge was as fantastic and memorable as all the others. The staff makes you feel like one of the family where you can get as much or as little assistance as you choose. Everything is taken care of for you...all you have to do is fish to your hearts content. The lodge and rooms are top quality and the food is amazing! And everyone's goal is for you to have a great fishing experience which is what you get when you go to Legacy Lodge. Looking forward to season #5!
