Womens' Fishing Derby 2019
Rugged Point Lodge’s First Women’s Derby was a success!
June 11-14th, 2018 we hosted our first women’s derby and it was fabulous!!! All 15 ladies caught fish and had a blast and even had a mexican dress up theme night! Ole.
We are busy planning our 2nd Annual Women’s Derby!! The dates for 2019 are: June 17-20!
A lot of fun for women who love to fish!
We think it is so great for ladies to get out fishing… being in the fishing industry for years, we notice more and more lady anglers. These ladies have a lot of fish to catch, weigh in and prizes! Every evening after dinner Madeline will announce the winners 🙂 Fish all day, then sit back and mingle, pour a drink, enjoy our chefs meals, relax and enjoy!
A huge thank you to all of our sponsors! All of our amazing donated prizes!
Safe and Modern Dock
Next to our lodge is our dock with a nice aluminum ramp and 5 ft. wide walkway down to where all of our boats and fish care are located. Grab a seat at the end of the night and watch the sunset from our dock!
We are located on a small island with some nice walking paths, one leads to outside beach which is a must do to check out the giant trees and rugged west coast beach or head out after dinner for a bon fire.
Walter’s Island also has a small convenience store and post office, a few houses mostly owned as summer getaway cabins and a restaurant – coffee shop with the best Latte’s in town!
By Boat or Plane
Access to the lodge is either by boat or plane. Most of our guests drive to Fair Harbour, a small parking lot/fuel station 14 miles up the inlet where we pick you up by boat at 1:30pm on your arrival day. Other options of getting here include a shuttle from the Comox Airport or a float plane charter from Campbell River or Vancouver.
