Lifelong Memories and the Best Fishing Around
My family has been visiting the Sportsman’s Club since the mid eighties and I personally have visited nearly every year since 1996. To say that I have made some of the finest memories of my life at this wonderful place would not do it justice… it is literally one of my favourite places on the planet.
I’ve been on family-style trips and on “just the guys” style trips, and Sportsman’s happily caters to both. Fathers and sons fishing together for their first time or a couple buddies enjoying a few drinks in the great outdoors are both commonplace here… not to mention Moms (my mother has caught the biggest fish in the family going back 30 years) and wives as well.
Sportsman’s Club is a family-run business, and the family seems to also include all of the staff that work through the summers each year. They are hard-working and attentive, and encouraged to be engaging and friendly with the guests (which they do a great job of!).
The food is plentiful, diverse and very high quality, and there is a wonderful selection of wine, beer and spirits so that you are well equipped to enjoy an adult beverage after a long day on the water (bragging about your conquests of course!)
Ok so the important stuff… the fishing! If you like to catch big Spring/King salmon, hard-fighting coho salmon, or halibut big enough to sink your boat… this is the spot! Each member of my family consistently “limits out” every year, leaving our freezers filled with fish until we return the next year.
I’ll never forget the time my Dad and I got a 39 pound chinook together while he had a cast on one arm, or the countless memories I’ve made with Simon (Sportsman’s “everyman”, Director of Fishing, Host, Entertainer, you name it!) and the rest of the guides out on the ocean.
I highly recommend the Sportsman’s Club to anyone who has a taste for the great outdoors, catching big fish, our making lifelong memories.
