The weather may be wet an cold, but It is once again time to start thinking about summer fishing in the Esperanza Inlet area! If you havent tried fishing Esperanza Inlet now is the time! Excellent fishing, and the lodge can easily be accessed via Gold River, Tahsis, or Zeballos. Port Eliza Lodge offers both Bring your own boat and guided fishing packages. Port Eliza Lodge is located near the mouth of Esperanza inlet, a short distance away from productive fishing spots for Chinook, Coho, Halibut Ling Cod and Rockfish. Spend less time running and more time fishing at Port Eliza!

Bring Your own Boat - we offer early and late season packages where you can bring your own food, and regular season packages which include all meals and soft drinks.

At Port Eliza you are always welcome to bring your own alcohol.
