Fly Fishing in Canada

Canada is a huge country that offers anglers the chance to reel in majestic fish surrounded by breathtaking nature. The only thing better than fishing in Canada is fly fishing here! Book a fishing trip from June to October and you’ll be able to see for yourself why anglers from far and wide make the pilgrimage here each year.

What to Catch

Once you’ve chosen an area, there’s plenty of species to target. You’ll probably come for the Salmon, but you’ll stay for all the other choices! Target species include Trout, Walleye, Pike, and Char.

Fly Fishing Trips in Canada 

You’ll find a trip to suit you no matter your budget or how far you want to travel. If you’re located in the States, head up to the Great Lakes and get a taste of Canadian fly fishing without waiting in line at the border (don’t forget your passport!).  Or, drive the family up to a cabin in Canada and fish one of the many lakes and rivers. 

Want to really get off the beaten track? Book yourself a fly-in fishing trip  and venture deep into Canada’s wilderness aboard a bush plane. You’ll stay in a lodge with a handful of other dedicated anglers and fish to your heart's content. Note that remote fishing trips predominantly focus on catch and release fishing. 

There’s so many places to choose from. British Columbia offers anglers the opportunity to catch all 5 species of Pacific Salmon. Haida Gwaii is great for lodges and getting back to nature. Hudson Bay has huge Char and for the best Walleye head to Rainy Lake, Detroit River, and plenty more. For Steelhead, Fraser River is the most popular, but you can also head to Columbia and Skeena River.

Each province in Canada has its own rules and regulations. Once you’ve decided where to go, you’ll need to buy a provincial freshwater fishing license and additional stamps for specific species. Be aware of local rules on fish limits and size, which can change yearly – your guide will know the most up-to-date information.

How to Prepare

Included in the price of most fishing trips are fly fishing rods and reels. Bringing your own? You’ll need to match your rod to the species you’re targeting. Pike will need a rod anywhere from 7–10 wt, whereas Salmon are great on an 8 wt rod, and Trout can be caught on a 6 wt rod. When choosing which rod to bring, always take into account the fly size needed and any obstacles from where you’ll be fishing.

Waders are not usually provided – ask your guide before if these can be rented or whether you should bring your own. Canadian hospitality is known worldwide, so food and drinks are normally provided on all trips.

Charter a fly fishing trip in Canada for an incredible vacation away from the concrete jungle. It doesn’t get better than this!

Weather can't be controlled. We had some strong winds that made it impossible go out deep for halibut. The salmon fishing was as good as could be expected for the weather.

Please listen to your captain and always follow their recommendations. If they tell you a day is not good follow their instructions the captains know the waters they boat and fish in like the back of their hand. Our captain was very knowledgeable. Recommended a different day and it was spot on.

Absolutely! There are plenty of fishes and weather is good but be prepared of sea sickness and ways to prevent it. Check the waves too just in case you get sick with movement of boats due to waves.

Not a lot of fishing boats out, so hardly any competition. We were able to catch our limit for the day. I am sure if we stayed out longer we could have got Halibut as well, since the other boat did in the same area.
