Anglers in the Kootenay Rockies should prepare for spectacular mountain scenery, outstanding parks and wildlife, and glacier-fed rivers and lakes filled with largest trout in the world.
The rivers that flow through here originate from the heights of the Purcell, Monashee, Selkirk and Rocky mountain ranges. These rivers and streams are ideal for fly-fishing and drift boats, while the long, deep lakes are perfect for trolling and spin casting.
With hundreds of lakes and rivers to explore, remote wilderness lodges and charming, laid-back towns, the Kootenay Rockies is ideal for visitors seeking to fish in an alpine or stunning wilderness setting.
