British Columbia freshwater fishing has historically heralded the Kamloops region for phenomenal fishing. While the crowds have flocked to Central BC, Fernie has been secretly enjoying trout fishing that rivals anything Montana has to offer!
Presently, the Elk River that runs through downtown Fernie is attracting increasing interest among the flyfishing crowd. The energetic Westslope Cutthroat trout is the catch of the day with some fantastic dryfly action. The salmonfly hatch in the spring kicks off the season June 15 when the river opens. Generous caddis and mayfly hatches occur throughout the summer to the famous 'hopper' action in the fall.
There are plenty of rivers and lakes closeby that hold trophy rainbow, brook, bull, dolly varden, sturgeon, whitefish and grayling with little fishing pressure. More well-known are the St. Mary River system in Kimberley and the Crowsnest River just across the Alberta border. Professional guides are available to help you make the most of your fishing trip.
Stay tuned for information on the new Blackstone signature golf course soon to be a new addition to the Fernie golf scene.
