I had the opportunity to join some old mates on one of my buckets list things I wanted to do. Being from Australia where there isn't Halibut and King Salmon, Rugged Point was a great place to experience catching them. What an incredible location to stay in such wilderness and have all the luxuries of home. The lodge is one...

One of our group had previously fished Kyaquot so it was with good expectations that we booked our trip in July of 2016. Everything about the operation met or exceeded our expectations. The boats, guides, food, accommodations, and the friendly staff made for a very rewarding experience !! Hope to return.

I stayed at rugged pointe Lodge for four nights and enjoyed great fishing from their comfortable boats. They served some of the best meals I have had at a fishing lodge. The employees were first-rate ,always there to help. You can't ask for a better location, better fishing, or more attentive staff! Highly recommended!!!

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...

Second and LAST trip to this place. Owner has no control over his employees due to his refusal to manage them.

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.
