Hook up with a guide, and savour this serene pastime while still feeling a quickening pulse with every nibble.

Never tried angling before? Fishing guides are notoriously passionate and knowledgeable people, and they know the best places to drop a line. And there’s nothing quite like a quiet, contemplative day on the water to help you connect with Mother Nature.

For freshwater fishing, the Cariboo’s Highway 24—known as the “Fishing Highway” thanks to its 100+ lakes—is hard to beat. Alternatively, go angling for westslope, cutthroat, and bull trout in the Canadian Rockies and Northern BC, or experience catch-and-release fishing for prehistoric sturgeon on the mighty Fraser River.
