Join us for 4-8 hours casting for Rainbow Trout or Walleye on the Columbia River! Our fishing day starts with pick up at the decided location which can include Trail, Rossland or Castlegar. We then proceed to the Columbia River. We’ll get our rods ready and shove off for a full day of fishing. We do supply light snacks and water and a few of our special flies. In spring, wading gear is required and in summer months all fishing will be in the drift boat (no waders required). Our trips are based for the beginner right up to the expert fisherman but not limited only to the fly fishing. We also cater to spin-casting. Bring your camera and make sure to have a warm jacket and a valid BC fishing license (These can be purchased from here.) Most of the river walleye fishing is done by the jigging method with a limit of 16 each (any size). The fishing boats we use are power boats that easily move you from one hole to another.Please inform guide of any specific health issues. There is Cell service anywhere we fish. Times may vary depending on weather conditions. You will be contacted directly upon booking to reserve a specific time for your trip.

Did you know the stretch of the Columbia River we fish is packed with Walleye? It is, and because this species is invasive to our waters, the daily limit to keep walleye is unusually high, making it possible to fill your freezer in just a few hours. These fish can be caught using traditional gear/tackle, and on the fly, providing excellent action for any angler.
