Rainbow Trout stillwater fly fishing is very productive on BC’s interior lakes 2.5 hours east of Vancouver. Best times are May – June. Best methods are midge fishing with a strike indicator. It’s a deadly method that has produced over 50 fish per day for some clients. We consistently out fish everyone every time we use this method. These lakes are tucked away in the higher country pine tree forests of BC’s interior. Although it involves plenty of driving, a day trip is possible. We do however recommend overnight or multi day packages. This will allow you to fish more and unwind in the solitude and scenery rich BC interior.
Our Rainbow Trout lakes that we specifically guide on are known for holding good size trout all the way to 15 lbs, however average sizes tend to be 16 – 24 inches or 1 to 5 lbs. BC Rainbow Trout are great fighters and expect ‘airtime’ and good runs! The lakes we fly fish on are the perfect size for float tubes also known as ‘belly boats’ or ‘pontoon boats’ such as the Outcast ‘Super Fat Cat’ or similar.
Cutthroat Trout Fly Fishing in Vancouver
Cutties are in all our rivers and sloughs throughout the Fraser river valley and Squamish river valley. They are the gentle trout. Not often big but good biters if you can find them. Best times for Cutthroat trout fly fishing is March to early May and sometimes November – December.
