Throughout the winter we fish the local rivers for Dolly Varden (Char), Rainbow and Cutthroat Trout. The best conditions for winter fishing are the rain, fog and warm temperatures that usually turn you away from your day of skiing or boarding. These relatively warm days above freezing provide a great excuse to get out onto a quiet river, see some of the local wildlife, and learn how to flyfish. Bald Eagles, Mountain Goat, River Otter and even Trumpeter Swans can be seen during these winter days.
There are some days however, that can be too cold to fish. When the temperature dips down below -5 Celcius, cold hands, frozen guides on the rod and ice on the river usually deter fishermen from getting out there. This type of condition does not last long though. Normal day time highs for our area range from 0 to +3 Celcius, while this may not be tropical, it is warm enough to get our fish active again.
To make the fishing experience as pleasant as possible we provide 5 mm neoprene waders and wading boots to keep you warm. A ski jacket, wool socks, fleece pants and sun glasses are all you will need for your day on the water. Even though fishing might not be something that is associated with winter, it can be a great activity for your day off from skiing or boarding.
Call or email us for the latest conditions.
Note * River fishing requires hiking and wading - participants should be in good physical health.
We do recommend a full day as this allows us to travel farther and to fish different waters.
