Where We Fish – Okanagan Valley Lakes and West Coast

Listed below are some of the Okanagan Valley Lakes we fish and the West Coast.  

Mountain Lake Fly Fishing

Secluded Mountain Lake fly fishing at it’s finest. The scenery is breath taking and the solitude and quietness are unbeatable. We fish lakes that offer fish in the 1 to 10 pound range. All fishing & safety equipment is included. We use 5 weight G.Loomis and Sage fly rods mated with G.Loomis and Ross reels. Our Reels are loaded with S.A and Airflow lines and we use an assortment of custom hand tied flies. Our fly fishing season starts in mid April and continues on through to the end of October. Read more about our guided fly fishing charters…

Bass Fishing

The Okanagan has an incredible “untapped” Bass fishery for both Large and Smallmouth Bass. We do our Bass fishing on Skaha, Vaseux and Osoyoos lakes and these lakes consistently produce Bass to 4 pounds with catches as big as 7 pounds not uncommon! Our Season begins in April and runs through to the end of October. Read more about our guided Bass fishing charters…

Okanagan Lake

Home of the Ogopogo, our very own “lake monster” and located in BC’s beautiful Okanagan Valley, Okanagan lake stretches 110 km from Vernon, through Kelowna and ends in Penticton. We fish Okanagan lake year round targeting Rainbow Trout, Kokanee and Burbot. If you want to target the ‘Big One’ your best time to do this is during the months of October, November and December. Our best fall season we landed  3 – 18 pound Rainbows. We’re still looking for that 20 pounder! Read more about our guided fishing charters…

Shuswap Lake 

Located in the North Okanagan Shuswap lake is nestled amongst the spectacular Monashee mountain range and is host to Rainbow Trout, Lake Trout, Bull Trout and Kokanee. We fish year round on Shuswap lake but focus mainly on the spring and fall seasons. Our spring fishery can be incredible to say the least, with 20 fish days not uncommon. At this time Sockeye Salmon fry are migrating through the lake enroute to the ocean, using 8 weight G’Loomis fly rods mated with Ross reels makes for some awesome fun.

Mabel Lake

Mabel Lake is one of the more scenic lakes in the Okanagan area. Approximately a 1-3/4 hour drive from Kelowna this pristine wilderness lake can offer some spectacular fishing opportunities. The main fish targeted are Rainbow Trout, Lake Trout, Bull Trout and Chinook Salmon. Fishing for Chinook Salmon is a unique opportunity that takes place from late July to mid September yielding average size fish from 15 to 25 pounds with fish as large as 40 pounds. These brutes are truly a test to an angler’s skill and stamina. Read more about a Mabel lake fishing charter…

Wood Lake

Wood Lake is located between Winfield and Oyama. This lake supports a great Kokanee fishery with fish regularly being caught to 2 lbs. By using only the best in ultra light gear and tackle these feisty landlocked salmon can put an angler’s skill to the test. Not to mention they are great eating!

Kalamalka Lake

Known as the ‘Lake of Many Colors’, this large lake is located between Vernon and Oyama. Main fish targeted are Lake Trout, Rainbow Trout and Kokanee. This lake can offer some very large Trophy sized Lake Trout averaging 15 to 20 pounds with our largest being a whopping 36 pounds! Because Lake Trout take many years to reach such large sizes we highly recommend releasing all fish caught and taking home pictures and memories only. Let’s keep this incredible fishery for others to enjoy! Read more about a Kalamalka lake fishing charter…

Skaha Lake

Skaha lake also known as “Dog Lake” is located on the southern side of Penticton. At 12 km long don’t let this smaller “large lake” fool you into thinking there are no big fish. Skaha has an abundant population of good sized Rainbow Trout, Kokanee Salmon and Smallmouth Bass. We fish Skaha lake from March thru December and usually are not disappointed.
