Fly Fishing


The East Kootenay region is world renowned for its trout fishing and majestic scenery. Wild populations of westslope cutthroat trout, rainbow, brook, and bull trout are found in our mountain lakes, rivers and streams. As well, mountain whitefish, Kokanee salmon, and Bass are resident species.

From ice off in late April to the late fall, flyfishing adventures abound in the East Kootenays. Be one of the first on mountain lakes after the ice melts to take advantage of the feeding that big hungry rainbow trout do.

Catch trout in solitude from a float tube on an Alpine lake, walk a quiet section of a stream stalking Cutthroat and Bull Trout from pool to pool, or even bring the whole family out for a memorable fishing trip.
