Columbia River Fly Fishing
Located on the upper Columbia River, in the West Kootenays, near Castlegar and Trail BC.
We offer day trips on the river in the Spring and Fall fly fishing for Rainbow Trout. We can take groups of up to 4 anglers and we run 2 x 18ft G3 center console jet boats. Our day trips include 6-8 hours of guided fishing and lunches, meet one of our guides at the specified boat ramps in the morning and spend the day on the river! Matt mainly fishes in the Genelle section of the river and Bruce mainly fishes in the Trail section of the river.
Our equipment consists of top of the line Orvis rods and reels and we have both single handed and spey rods for our guests to use.
The Columbia River is a huge river with trout that are the landlocked descendants of the steelhead that used to travel the river up into Canada before the Coulee Dam was built in 1942. There are a lot of trout in the river between 16” -22” range and there are also some trout in the 30” plus class.
We have joined forces with another guide, Bruce Kruk. He is a world class spey caster and instructor and has been fishing this river for 20 plus years mainly specializing in spey fishing and casting. Bruce likes to target big fish on the swung fly.
