Fishing Charters on World Famous Kootenay Lake for Gerrard rainbow trout!

With a vast knowledge of the surrounding areas, and the best fishing charters spots, Captain Mike Thompson motors the over the amazing turquoise waters of Kootenay Lake angling for the famous Gerrard Rainbow Trout.

Kootenay Lake is reknown for its large rainbow trout as well as big lake trout. Kootenay Lake is 97 miles long and nestled between the Selkirk and Purcell mountain ranges.

One of British Columbia’s best kept secrets, the Kootenays are an unbelievable area of forests, lakes, mountains and rivers that offer the best biking, boating, hiking, fishing, golf and horseback riding outdoor adventures around.

We also fish the Columbia River, Duncan Lake, Kalamalka Lake, and Nootka Sound on Vancouver Island. Enjoy fishing for bull trout, rainbow trout, salmon, trophy halibut and walleye or just a day out on the water, and drink in the relaxing landscape that BC has to offer. The lakes around the Kootenay area are famous for their Gerrard Rainbow Trout that are constantly weighing in between 20 and 30 lbs.
