The Cariboo's rivers, lakes and streams provide spawning, rearing and foraging habitat for BC's legendary rainbow trout.

This region, with its prolific fly hatches, nutrient rich environment and clear, cold waters make a fantastic fishing destination. This is an angler's paradise. Remote and pristine, it provides both the perfect habitat for trout and a refreshing oasis of wilderness solitude for the fisherman.

At the ranch's rearing pond, our angling guides coach guests in the art of fly-casting and fly-tying. Wilderness lakes all around are stocked with rainbow trout. These fat, sporty rainbows are exceedingly playful when on your line! You can fly fish from one of our special flat bottom drift boats rigged with an ultra-quiet electric engine or by using pontoon boats while on a lake, and while wading during remote river fishing.

We ask that all guests interested in fishing do the half day Intro to the Art of Fly Fishing session with a guide, and following that they may fish by themselves unguided at anytime between dawn and dusk. All fishing equipment is supplied by the resort including your fishing license, boat, net, rods, reels, flies, and waders for the river. To protect future stores we encourage the practice of catch and release.

 River Fly Fishing 

The River Safari offers classic river fly fishing in the wild. And during our Waterfalls and Fire Ecology Hike™, there is the opportunity for both types of fishing in a beautiful volcanic lake and the river that flows into it — you can do traditional spin casting from shore and river bank, or fly fish — whatever your pleasure. 

Wherever you are while on your Siwash Lake fly fishing holiday, your guide will help you "match the hatch" and perfect your dry fly and wet fly techniques, using both floating and sinking line.

All levels are welcome, beginner through advanced — and the one-on-one personal attention we're famous for ensures that the fishing is tailored for your specific wishes.
