Information

Come to the unique mountain scenery of British Columbia, where each day we’ll venture out to the local lakes and practice fly fishing for high-quality Canadian fish.

The water temperature in the local lakes and streams is perfect for healthy fish populations, so prepare to cast your line! Meanwhile, enjoy open-air lunches and campfire meals along with a snug ranch lodging.

Our expert guides will explain the art of fly-making and teach you everything you need to know to get a bountiful catch. Whether you want to hone your skills for 4-days or really master the art of fishing on our 7-day option, this tour is a must for any fishing enthusiast.

Pack your rod and embark on this thrilling fishing getaway!

DAY 1: Arrival and Orientation

 

Once everyone arrives at the ranch around midday, we’ll have a hearty lunch and begin to get familiar with the territory. Our guides will give you an overview of the map of the area and talk about the main fishing locations we’ll visit.

A safety briefing will follow and the instructors will inform you about the necessary wildlife precautions, as sometimes local wild animals wish to keep the anglers company.

We make sure that each and every trip is enjoyable, productive and safe, so the guides will go over wilderness safety and survival skills, including bear and cougar safety rules and angling license regulations.

Later on, you can try your hand at casting a line, while the instructors are demonstrating some basic angling techniques.

After all the instructions are made clear, we’ll head out to a local lake for practice. You’ll sling a hook for your first catch of the day among the natural beauty of the forest under a vivid sunset.

In the evening we’ll come back to the ranch and enjoy a home-cooked dinner, before heading out to our chalets or rooms for a good night’s sleep.

 

DAY 2 AND 3: Fly fishing practice

 

Over the next few days, we’ll have breakfast at the ranch and head out to local ponds and lakes as soon as we can. We’ll make the most of every morning and early midday because that’s when the sun warms up the lake shallows, and the fish move closer to the shore to feed.

To lure as many fish as possible, the instructors will introduce you to the world of basic entomology, and you’ll learn about the art of fly-making while trying to craft your own. After that, the guides will demonstrate some more angling techniques, help the beginners to get confident with the rod and share insider tips with the advanced anglers.

Later on, we’ll do some hands-on practice, as we cast for Rainbow Trout and other fish species, including Bull trout, Kokanee Salmon, and Mountain Whitefish. Your efforts are likely to be truly rewarding, as the local lakes and ponds have pure cold waters with high oxygen levels, resulting in plentiful fish populations. To make your trip as delightful as possible, our instructors will try to ensure that you catch any fish species that you are particularly interested in.

After the few pleasant hours at the lake, we’ll head back to the ranch for a lunch break, after which we’ll go back for some more fishing.

To top the day off, we’ll have a delicious dinner, and complete a daily fishing report, before you go to your cozy cabins or chalets to rest.

 

DAY 4: Morning Fishing and Departure

 

On the last day, after a filling breakfast, we’ll set out to a lake do some more fishing before you depart. Take a chance to reel in some more fish while basking in the morning hours on the mountain lake. Before you go, take in the fresh alpine air and cast your rod in this tranquil fishing heaven.

Once we are done angling, at the ranch we’ll update the lake records with data from your daily fishing reports, and finally, bid farewell. See you on the next adventure!
