Formulary known as Winter Harbour Cottages, Wild West Coast Lodge and home of Oli’s Fishing Charters is family owned and operated. Glenn and Stephanie Olson and their two children Khaleesi and baby Westley took on this new venture in spring of 2017. It has always been our dream to own and manage a fishing lodge so when the opportunity came we were up for the challenge!

Glenn and Stephanie were born and raised on Northern Vancouver Island. Glenn grew up in Port Mcneill and started guiding at the age of 15! He has fished Winter Harbour for many years for pleasure and as a guide. It truly is a special place. Stephanie’s Dad is a west coast commercial troller and she has fished as a deckhand with her Dad years ago on the legendary double ender the BRB.

Glenn and Stephanie both share the same beliefs of ethical fishing and sustainable fishing. We encourage our clients and friends to embrace the experience and to respect our ocean and environment and what they provide for us.
