Information

Among the tantalizing mountains of British Columbia, each day abounds with opportunities to become one with nature and get firsthand experience in catching native high-quality fish.

Licensed guides will share tips on fly-making and teach advanced anglers the best techniques and show beginners everything they need to know.

If you want to spend more than 4 days fishing in the wild waters of Chilcotin Mountains, we offer a prolonged version of the tour, so that you can hone your fly fishing skills for 7 days!

Day 1: Arrival and Orientation

After your arrival at the ranch around midday, you’ll be served a hearty lunch and the guides will give you a brief rundown of the map and show you the main fishing locations throughout the territory.

We begin with a quick technical briefing so that you’re confident and ready for your adventure. Fly fishing may seem like an easy activity, but, as we’re headed up to the mountains and forests, you need to know how to stay safe and sound. We’ll go over wilderness safety and survival skills, including bear and cougar safety rules and angling license regulations.

Then our expert instructors will demonstrate some angling techniques and help you select your equipment. After all the housekeeping is done, it’s time for your first catch of the day! We’ll head out to a local river and you’ll try your hand at fly fishing during a glorious sunset.

When we’re done with fishing for the day, we’ll come back to the ranch and enjoy a home-cooked dinner, before heading out to our cozy chalets or rooms.

 

Day 2 and 3: Fly fishing practice

Over the next two days, you’ll be able to immerse into the art of fishing, surrounded by a panorama of towering peaks and sprawling forests. On each day, after a hearty breakfast, it’s time to break out the fishing lines for some fly fishing practice!

Our guides will give a short introduction into the world of basic entomology, and you’ll learn about fly-making. You’ll have hands-on practice in designing and crafting flies, a must-have skill to make sure the lure stays inviting enough for the fish to strike. Later on, we’ll talk about angling methods and the instructors will share some tips about being a successful angler.

Shortly after our brief instruction session, we’ll head out to the local rivers. The fresh mountain streams in the area have pure, cold waters with high oxygen levels, the perfect environment for healthy fish populations.

Though of course nature can’t be predicted, the waters’ abundant schools of fish are likely to reward you richly for your angling efforts! The rivers abound with freshwater shrimp and high-quality Rainbow Trout that feeds on it. You can also catch other fish species, including Kokanee Salmon, Dolly Varden, Brook Trout, and Mountain Whitefish.

If you have a particular interest in a specific fish species, let the instructors know and they’ll do their best to help you meet your goals.

After a few thrilling hours, we’ll go back to the ranch for a well-deserved lunch. Your hosts will cook your catch or create vegetarian dishes to suit your diet.

Once we’ve refilled our energy bars, we’ll get back to fishing, and at the end of the day, we’ll see who had the best catch of the day, and complete a daily fishing report. Nothing like a bit of competition to add some sportsmanship! After dinner, you’ll head to your snug lodging.

 

Day 4: Morning Fishing and Departure

On the last day of our fishing tour, we’ll have breakfast and make the most of the remaining time, by fishing in some pristine waters. The early hours spent fishing in the remote wild streams with gravel shallows will fill you up with positive energy for many days ahead. Don’t forget to take a deep breath of fresh mountain air one more time and bask in the calm nature before you go!

As we go back to the ranch, we’ll update the river records with data from your daily fishing reports, and say our goodbyes. Until the next adventure!

Our programs are subject to the unpredictable weather and terrain conditions that come with a mountainous environment. We do our best to stick to the itinerary, however, there are times when the current conditions and needs of the group force us to adjust schedules, fishing locations, etc. This is part of any true wilderness experience, however, and we are well equipped to adapt the adventure to changing conditions.
