Legacy Lodge offers more than a simple fishing excursion.
We provide a memorable, world-class experience. You will have the opportunity to capture the beauty and essence of the protected, glassy waters of Rivers Inlet and come face- to-face with the hard-fighting, aggressive salmon that wait to challenge your skill and hook.
The abundant Coho, often in excess of 20 pounds migrate through amazingly high in the water column are so aggressive, they are often caught a few feet behind the boat.
Imagine a 20-pound Coho striking your cut plug bait trolled 20 feet from your rod tip, then peeling 200 feet of line off your single action reel in seconds. This is Rivers Inlet excitement, and your Legacy Lodge experience at its best!
Legacy Lodge provides three distinct seasons of fishing. Traditional salmon fishing for Chinook and Coho salmon is available from mid-June through September on the calm and secluded waters throughout Rivers Inlet. Halibut, Yellow Eye and Lingcod are also plentiful in these waters all summer.
