Fly Fishing Canada
Sunday, 26 April 2015 | Simon
Fly fishing in Canada provides you with gin-clear mountain lakes, streams and rivers. One visit you might try is to the Yukon Territory, with its star-filled night stars and the possibility of catching a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis. The several miles of the Bonaventure, Little and Grand Cascapedia Rivers are possibly the world's most productive salmon waters. Out here you can book fishing holidays with exceptional salmon guides, with canoeing and fishing, and accommodation in log cabins.
And if you think all this sounds like a Wild West adventure, you’d be right. The truly breathtaking landscapes, and dramatic rivers are second to none. As well as river fishing for salmon, you can access brook trout fishing. You can find rivers and streams filled with big “brookies” between two and six pounds in weight. In addition there is an abundance of large northern pike, some of up to 20 pounds, as well as magnificent trout.
One area well worth considering is on the Continental Divide, by the shores of McEvoy Lake. The region boasts some of the Yukon Territory's finest lakes, rivers and streams. It is home to some of the best fighters in the world, some of which you may already know, and other with which you may be unfamiliar. The fighting species include the great northern pike, lake trout, dolly varden and the elusive Inconnu or shee fish.
A fly fishing experience unlike any other.
