In the face of natural and human-related threats to the chinook population, Black Gold Lodge and other area sport-fishing lodges are proud supporters of the association at Snootly Hatchery in Bella Coola; we transport our fish by plane. In 1991, the association released a quarter million native chinook smolts into these waters, and similar numbers have been released in subsequent years.

Salmon enhancement efforts continue to be funded and run by the lodge owners, who every year sponsor a derby to raise funds for hatchery operations. Prizes for the largest chinook (king) and coho include survival suits and Shimano rods and reels. Many other prizes—including a Yamaha outboard and a trip for two to your host lodge—are awarded by drawing.

You can purchase a derby ticket at the lodge for only $20 CA. Thank you for supporting our efforts to make fishing at Rivers Inlet even better, and ensure outstanding sport fishing opportunities now and for years to come.
