Carved into the rugged Coast Line of British Columbia, Rivers Inlet is renowned around the globe for its magnificent scenery and unrivaled sportfishing. The waters here teem with some of the largest coho and chinook salmon in the world. In fact, more 50-60 lb chinook salmon are caught in this fjord-like inlet each year than any other area in British Columbia.
Located within the pristine beauty and calm of Pendelton Bay, Legacy Lodge provides nine private guest rooms and four suites that will sooth you in comfort and luxury. All meals are overseen by the lodges Executive Chef and feature a traditional Pacific Northwest fare of fresh fish and prime beef. Throughout your stay, the energetic staff attends to every detail, from daily room service to fish handling, all designed to enhance your Legacy Lodge experience.
"After fishing the waters from Oregon to Alaska for more than 20 years, no location compared with the realm of wild beauty and world class fishing found here. We incorporated the best of those experiences into Legacy Lodge. By providing master craftsmen with cedar and materials indigenous to the area, the lodge is one of natural, rustic beauty" offers Mick Heath, the vision and host behind Legacy Lodge. "In the end we created an experience found nowhere else in these waters".
Legacy anglers with humpback whales
Legacy Lodge places the fisherman at the most strategic of locations, close to the mouth of Rivers Inlet and minutes from the most productive fishing waters in British Columbia. Guests can quickly reach areas where they can fish with only the whales intruding on their experience. "We've spent years locating the most productive fishing waters. Our new fleet of custom built sport fishing boats allow our guests to reach areas within the inlet that others simply can't".
Although seasoned anglers are quickly calling Legacy Lodge home, the lodge provides in-boat instruction to all guest from its staff of professional guides. The most rewarding experience is to provide a new angler with the ability to catch the fish on his own. "It's really exciting to see guests catching 15-20 lb coho after a few hours on the water. A 45 lb plus chinook slamming your bait and ripping 100 yards of line off your reel leaves an impression for a lifetime" laughs Heath.
