The Canadian Rockies

Fly fishing the Canadian Rockies is reminiscent of Montana’s glory days; a time before the crowds, fly shops, and army of trout bums. Whether it’s the sheer beauty of the mountains, the vast untouched rivers teeming with monster fish, or the prolific hatches, there’s a good reason why so many Montana fishing guides head north on their off days.

From the mountain peaks of Jasper, to the foothills of Southwest Alberta, the Canadian Rockies have something for every angler. West slope cutthroat, rainbow, and bull trout thrive in the freestone rivers and alpine lakes scattered throughout the mountains, while brown trout live in the foothills of south-western Alberta. 

The Canadian Rockies have several areas of interest to the avid fly fisherman. Fernie offers arguably the best dry fly fishing for cutthroat trout in the world, as well as a prolific bull trout fishery. For anglers looking for non-stop still water action, the lakes around the Golden and Kamloops areas offer unique strains of rainbow and bull trout that will put you into your backing in seconds. And for those hunting trophies, the Cariboo region hosts a unique fishery that offers opportunities for the dedicated angler to target rainbows in the 30+ inch class, that are willing to slurp down dries all summer long.

Available accommodations include: day trips, lodges, and heli-camps. We have close relationships with lodges and outfitters in prime locations throughout the region.
