Fished and relaxed late July 2015. Had a group of 9 looking to catch some fish. All limited out on Halibut, Ling and Salmon. Guides were excellent and knew the area well. Kevin and Paul know how to fish the bottom! Our group brought in nearly 1600 pounds of fish First class treatment at the Lodge. Rooms were spotless and... More

Rugged Point Lodge provides the perfect combination of fishing, natural beauty, and hospitality. One of the Lodge's strongest points is that the guests are treated and feel like family. It's a friendly place, fostering congeniality among the guests. A maximum of 12 guests are at the lodge at any one time, meaning that at most 3 will be on one... More

Fantastic lodge! I look forward to fishing with Matt, Kristy, and crew each year and have been with them for seven seasons. The lodge is in the perfect location, is clean, neat, and the staff ensure that you are well taken care of with the guides knowing where to find the big ones. I've always caught my limit and I'm...

I have been to five fishing lodges/resorts on the west side of Vancouver Island. Rugged Point Lodge is the best. Kristy and Matt put together a memorable fishing experience with great food, a great location and beautiful lodge, great guides and great fishing. The caring and attentive staff (including the guides), go out of their way to make your stay... More

Second and LAST trip to this place. Owner has no control over his employees due to his refusal to manage them. Our fishing guide took us to the fish, but refused to talk with us (wife and myself) and destroyed a day of fishing by not fueling up the vessel. An hour away from the lodge at mid day he... More

It sadden's us to read this review. We are a small family run lodge and we put our heart and soul into what we do here. We have a great staff who work well as a team and some of the best most experienced guides on the west coast. I guess sometimes peoples best intentions can be taken the wrong... More

Kristy and Matt run a first rate operation. Their attention to detail made our stay well worth the trip. Beautiful lodge with very comfortable beds. The layout lends itself to either enjoying other guests company or finding a quiet place to enjoy the amazing views.

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
