PreSeason’s Greetings from Hippa Island


Time is flying by as we assemble our crews and prepare the lodges for the tow north to the Haida Gwaii… It won’t be long now and we will be out on the west side looking for that fish of a lifetime!

Early season at Hippa Island is one of my favorite times to be on the water. We don’t have to venture far from the lodge most days, the water is cool and our inside fishery comes alive. Salmon en route to their natal southern rivers stop here to feed, making Hippa’s fishery truly world class… and if you haven’t experienced it for yourself, it’s a great year to do so!

At Hippa this year, we are proud to offer guests a fully-guided fishing experience that includes our fish portioning service. Your personal guide will spend the day with you, ensuring the best possible chances at capturing the species on your wish list – including halibut, lingcod, rockfish and more!
I am thrilled to be a part of the crew at Hippa Island again this season, and look forward to seeing you up at the lodge this summer!
