Fishing for all abilities

This half day orientation at our trout pond is designed for beginner to intermediate fly fishers. However, regardless of experience, even if you are an accomplished angler, you'll enjoy playing the sporty fat trout in our fish pond. Expert fly fishers can quickly proceed to the lakes and rivers with or without a guide.


Backcountry fly fishing

This introductory fly fishing experience at Siwash Lake checks all guests off for self-guided fishing in the area using our flat bottom drift boats with electric engines. For those of you wanting to try remote river fly fishing — after participating in the introductory session — make sure you book one of our favourite activities, the River Outpost Safari!
