Meet Island Lodge Guide Marcus Mitchell

Joining the Langara Island Lodge guide team in 2023 Marcus has brought his youthful energy to our crew. With several years of guiding experience in Haida Gwaii before landing at Island Lodge, he has quickly become a guest favourite and a welcomed member of our team.

Marcus grew up in British Columbia, playing hockey and spending his summers on the water with his brother Matt, who guides at Langara Fishing Lodge. Now living in Terrace BC, Marcus is set to return for his second season at Island Lodge and we're looking forward to having him back.

What do you do when you're not at Langara?

I don't have much of an off-season, I'm lucky enough to spend most of my year on the water. I've graduated from university and have been working as a steelhead guide in Terrace during the Fall and Spring. I love to get out hunting when I can and have two miniature dachshunds that keep me busy!

What's the best part about your job at Island Lodge?

Getting to live, work and play on the beautiful island of Langara. Also the people who I work with and the guests that come to enjoy our paradise.

What's one of the main memories of Langara you look back on?

A few of my best memories from last season come from guiding some amazing guests and families! A few that have stuck with me are the great times that I got to experience with the Hargrove family. Hearing about Josh’s magical morning with Marc MacAneely at Gunia Point, where they tied into some spectacular fish and the long standing memories they have with years of coming to Langara. 

Have you fished with Marcus? If you have and have a story or two let us know, you can send us a note here.

Making Memories at Langara

Waiting on the "Big One"

Another guest that has stayed with me, was Ben, one of the younger guests I’ve gotten to guide. A diehard angler who was up early and fished late, and wanted to catch the “big one”. He finally succeeded and seeing his smile and excitement when we put the net under his trophy fish reminded me of why I wanted to become a guide in the first place!
