Fishing has always been a core component of the McKay Bay Lodge and with good reason. 

We’re a fisherman’s dream destination.

Find out what it feels like to wrestle in a big, mighty salmon. Chinook and Coho Salmon have been feeding on herring, pilchards and needlefish and waiting for your arrival. Don’t worry if you have forgotten something, our fully equipped Tackle Shop likely has the very thing you need. Then there is the excellent eating Halibut and Lingcod. Landing one of these fine fish is a joy you’ll remember until you return to do it all over again. 

Over 400 ft of moorage makes McKay Bay Lodge ‘the place of choice’ for boaters up and down the coast. For your convenience we house a full fuel dock and tackle shop with all the gear you need to real in the big one. We have it all. Please, bring your own boat as we have the room for you on our docks and in our comfortable rooms in the lodge. The docks are equipped with three fish cleaning stations, a walk-in fast freezer on shore, and a commercial vaccum sealer to ensure your catch is properly processed. Our 26′ welded aluminum boats are fully equipped with air suspension seats, the latest gear and electronics as well as experienced guides to take you to where the fish are; whether it is your first time learning to fish or a seasoned veteran, all you have to do is worry about reeling in the big one.
