Fishing Info

The Elk River is known as one of the most pristine and premier dry fly fisheries in the world. Located in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, this is a spectacular freestone river filled with deep pools, dancing riffles, and various back channels perfect for flyfishing. The Elk River holds a very healthy population of native wild westslope cutthroat trout, along with bull trout and mountain whitefish.

The summer season opens June 15 every year and carries through with dry fly fishing well into late October. The average size of the cutthroat you may expect to see range from 14 to 18 inches with an occasional fish in the 20″ range.

The trout in the Elk River are abundant and big due to the catch and release regulations and the high levels of insect productivity. A day of dry fly fishing on the Elk River is nothing short of amazing and will keep you coming back for years to come.


Fernie is located in southeastern British Columbia’s Rocky Mountains. Flights to the area service the town of Cranbrook, BC. From Cranbrook driving time is about 1.5 hours.
