Experience a peaceful fishing trip in several of Canada’s beautiful lakes. Whether it’s by yourself, with your friends and/or family, a fishing trip is one perfect solution for a getaway. Fly fishing makes use of artificial flies and will be done in rivers and streams instead of lakes. Create new memories and learn new things in Chilcotin Holidays’ 7-Day Fly Fishing Adventure.
Day one is mostly preparation for the whole trip. Your midday arrival will be just in time for lunch. After lunch you will be having a map orientation with your guides, highlighting the best fishing spots in the property. To ensure your safety, you will discuss the safety and survival skills along with the angling license regulations with your guides. You will also learn about bear and cougar safety for they roam free in the untamed wilderness where our lakes are located. Learn about angling techniques and select your preferred fishing equipment. Head out to a local lake and try to catch a few fishes. Return for a ranch-style dinner and spend the night in ranch accommodations.
On days two to six you will be learning basic entomology (study of insects) in preparation for fishing after a hearty breakfast at the ranch. You will also be designing and crafting your own fishing flies. A discussion of basic angling methods will also be done with your guides before you head out to local lakes to start your ice fishing trip. You will have a short lunch break before continuing fishing and return to the ranch for dinner. Before you go to sleep you will complete a daily fishing report.
On day seven, you will have a morning fishing activity after breakfast and update lake records before a farewell lunch and graduation. You will then depart from the ranch after four days of peace and fun.
Please note that we try to follow the itinerary as much as possible but due to changes in weather and circumstances, we may need to adapt to any circumstance as to what we see proper.
