When it comes to fly fishing for trout, Fernie, British Columbia beats them all. My friend, Frank, flies halfway around the world from his home near Melbourne, Australia, just to wet a line in Fernie. He claims there is nowhere else like it. I agree.
Fernie, located in the southeast corner of British Columbia, in the province’s Kootenay Mountains, is defined by the Elk River Valley. The Elk River and its tributaries are strictly managed fisheries that offer world-class fly fishing for massive bull trout and hard-fighting cutthroat trout.
