British Columbia is home to many renowned fly fishing destinations, all with their own unique qualities.
Fortress Lake Retreat has garnered a reputation for trophy Brook Trout in a spectacular mountain setting. Fly in by helicopter through the dazzling peaks of Jasper National Park and Hamber Provincial Park to this “Rustic Luxury” lodge. The lake was stocked in the 1930’s with Eastern, Nipigon Coaster Brook Trout, which are adrenaline inducing to catch on a fly rod.
Known as “Trout Town”, Fernie BC and the Elk River system is known as one of the top five Dry-Fly destinations in North America. The area’s rivers and streams are full of both Cutthroat Trout and Bull Trout which can be accessed with a number of guiding outfits including Elk River Guiding Company, who offers both fishing from a drift boat and walk & wade trips.
Skeena River Lodge is one of several in the North West that offer a pampered lodge life with exceptional fishing for ocean going Steelhead and Salmon. Located just 16 Kilometers from Terrace BC, the new luxurious facility surrounded by rugged scenery is sure to impress.
Life is busy and full of sensory overload. The last couple of years have perhaps left us searching for a bit more meaning and new ways to find fulfillment. Make some time to slow down and explore the soul of fly fishing in the mountains of BC. It just might be exactly what you need. ✈
