Haida Gwaii is world-renowned for its fresh and salt water fishing. There are freshwater streams in abundance, as well as the ocean itself, to lure adventurous fishers to this unique spot. From May through August, millions of fish pass by Haida Gwaii (the Queen Charlotte Islands) as they head back to their spawning grounds. All five species of salmon can be found in these waters at this time: Chinook (kings, springs, tyees), Chum (dogs), Sockeye (reds), Coho (silvers) and Pinks (Humpies). Starting in mid-May, the fish appear on the northern Graham Island coast and follow the herring and needlefish down the coastline. This first run of fish are heading back to the Nass and Skeena Rivers on the mainland and can average 25-35 lbs, although they can get up to 60-70 lbs. Coho will show up in early July and by late August can weigh over 20 lbs. Steelheads are the winter fishery on the islands, with the first run showing up in October, and running through to March. Peak months are December and January. Spring Halibut can weigh over 40 pounds.
Crabbing along North Beach is available for most of the year. North Beach is considered by many to be one of the best razor clam beaches in the world. Dungeness crabs can also be caught in this area. Some of the best dinners in the world can be found just metres from your lot. All you need to do is take your crab net and walk along the beach.
Hiking, biking and walking on the beaches or numerous trails provides enjoyment as well as relaxation for the outdoor enthusiasts. One of Masset’s attractions is the world famous Delkatla Wildlife Sanctuary, which is on the southern route for migratory birds. At least 140 different species have been seen at different times. The once endangered Trumpeter Swan winters here and in the summer you can spot the Sandhill Crane. The Sanctuary is becoming internationally recognized for its importance as a nesting, feeding and wintering area.
The Village of Queen Charlotte is also a community full of art and culture. Works of various artists ranging from paintings, wood carvings, pottery Haida carving, glass work and handmade clothing are displayed in gift shops and coffee shops throughout the town.

|History :||The Village site was established in 1908 when the first sawmill in this archipelago began operating. The operation of the sawmill and mining possibilities drew settlers to the community and within a year there was a hospital, general stores, hotel, boarding house, barber shop, pool hall and a newspaper. The sawmill operated until 1912 and was put into operation again towards the latter part of the First World War to saw Sitka spruce for airplane lumber. The community continues to have resource-based jobs, such as lumber, mining and fishing, but has also seen a shift towards more tourism-oriented employment.|
