BC Stillwater Guided Fishing – Spring 2013

Pacific Angler Stillwater Guided Fly Fishing Packages By BC Brothers

Stillwater angling has become one of the most popular ways of fishing for trout. The tranquil settings along with the art of casting a fly, makes the experience one that never leaves your mind. We invite you on a stillwater adventure of a lifetime catching spectacular rainbow trout in some of the most peaceful, picturesque lakes in British Columbia.

Interior Lake Rainbow Trout

The focus will be on the Merritt and Kamloops area, which boasts dozens of lake choices within a 2-hour driving radius. The lakes in this area are host to strong aquatic insect populations, which can produce trout upwards of 10lbs.

Your guides, Jason and Derek Jakubec will help remove the mystery behind reading a lake the same way you would read a river. You will learn how to read the contours and structure of a lake bottom or the shoals that can provide explosive and exciting shallow water fishing. Learn how to tie the perfect leader or identify the ideal depth to suspend your chironomid, then be ready for the frantic grab of your fly-rod as your strike indicator darts under the lake surface! Maybe the conditions will call for an accurate cast into the shallows and a slow hand retrieve leading to headshakes of the big one climbing on! Be sure of one thing, there is no shortage of action. Jason and Derek will help you match the hatch and put you in the zone for big trout and big number days. With over 20 years’ experience of freshwater fishing knowledge throughout interior British Columbia, Jason and Derek, have the skills to guide you to the fish of a lifetime.

Interior Lake Rainbow Trout

On your guided trip you will have the option of fishing from the same boat as your guide, or doing it on your own in single man boat. Your guide will be right beside you making sure to adjust location and technique when needed.

Pacific Angler and the BC Brothers have been monitoring the weather patterns and ice-off status of the lakes this spring and with this information we have selected the 3 best weekends throughout the entire lake fishing season to guide you during the prime-time of this fishery.

The dates are the weekends of:

  • May 18th & 19th
  • May 25th & 26th
  • June 1st & 2nd

You have the option of booking a 2 Day/2 Night package that includes lake-side wall tent accommodation, all three meals (breakfast, lunch & dinner), guided lake fly fishing and all gear required for your trip if necessary. This basecamp has been placed, by design, in the centrally located Kane Valley. This enables Derek and Jay to guide you on the hottest lake within an 1-2hr radius of the basecamp to ensure your success! The Kane Valley is a scenic 2.5hr drive from downtown Vancouver and accessible by car.

Should none of these dates work for you due to spring cleaning tasks…fear not. We can easily customize a lake fishing trip based on your schedule, whether it be a single day of fishing or an extended 3 to 4 day trip. We do strongly recommend 2day/2night minimum as your 2nd day on the water is when your learning curve grows exponentially as you apply all the secrets Derek and Jay share with you.

Single Day Guided with 1 angler = $450.00
Single Day Guided with 2 Anglers = $550.00
