One of the first things you notice upon arriving in Fernie is the emerald water of the Elk River. The Elk and its many tributaries offer a world class mecca for fly fisherman and the backcountry offers some great alpine lakes for the float tube enthusiast. Enjoy excellent fishing for a variety of species from Bass to Brook, Rainbows, and Cutthroat Trout.
Fernie Wilderness Adventures Nothing is better than floating a fly along a heavily treed bank or drifting a fly through a ripple in anticipation of an 18 inch cutthroat trout. This is world class dry fly fishing at its best! We offer float trips on the scenic Elk and Flathead Rivers, walk-and-wade and lake fishing. Half day and full day trips available.
