Fly-Fishing at Siwash Lake

Fly fishing for trout in the quiet solitude of our private and secluded fresh water lake, disturbed only by the splash of big rainbows dancing on the end of your line, is the ultimate fishing experience.

The Cariboo region's rivers, lakes and streams provide spawning, rearing and foraging habitat for BC's legendary rainbow trout. At Siwash, prolific fly hatches, a 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.

There is a on-site rearing pond at the ranch, where our angling guides coach guests in the art of fly-casting and fly-tying. The lake itself is stocked with 2-8lb. rainbow trout and when our fat, sporty rainbows are on your line, you'll find them to be exceedingly playful. While on the lake, you can fly fish from our deep-water casting dock or from one of our special flat bottom boats. We ask that all guests interested in fishing do a half day with a guide, and following that they may fish by themselves unguided on Siwash at anytime between dawn and dusk.

Classic River Fly Fishing


Day two of the Siwash Equine Experience offers classic river fly fishing in the wild. And during the Crater Lake Waterfalls and Fire Ecology Hike, there is the opportunity for both types of fishing in the lake and the river—you can do traditional spin casting from shore and river bank, or fly fish—whatever your pleasure. 

Wherever you fish while on your Siwash 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.
