Picture this , a client and a D.B.O. guide are in Fernie B.C. discussing the days fishing , the client asks the guide “so what is your favorite river to fish “? the guide looks to the east and smiles .As much as we love fishing the Elk River for it’s big and somewhat dumb Cutthroat Trout,easy fishing , awesome scenery and the friendly residents.There is something to be said for driving over the mountains to having an excellent Fly-fishing experience on a number of rivers that are up to an hour and a bit away in Alberta . Why ? Not only are the views spectacular, we also enjoy the challenge of snotty , technical browns and rainbows the inhabit most of rivers flowing off the East Slopes of the Canadian Rockies.This Angling paradise stretches from The Bow River down to the Montana Border .The Fly-fishing opportunities are a mix of floatable and walk & wade rivers that have decent populations of trout.For the most part it is vacant of Anglers . Visiting Fly-Fishers that have the Elk River on their bucket list should also add a few under the radar screen rivers to their trip planning, we love to help you out !Read the Reviews
