Situated in the world famous Kamloops Rainbow Trout Region, fish in these waters are notorious for their incredible fighting abilities. Guests of the lodge have unlimited access to Stoney and Minnie Lakes. Minnie Lake is a 5 minute drive from the lodge, with both lakes offering opportunities to catch and release trout up to the double digits. Both Minnie and Stoney Lakes are surrounded by total private property. Limited visitation and angling pressure is the first draw to these nutrient rich bodies of water. A complete fishery waters management program is firmly in place, closely monitoring water levels/angling days/fish populations, natural and enhanced [Triploid & Diploid Rainbow Trout]. These lakes are strict Rainbow Trout only habitats.STONEY LAKE LODGE VIDEO! http://youtu.be/KD6tGkl1o6s

Randy Beck from Ultimate SportFishing has awarded an amazing FULL day trip for two on the Fraser River going after MONSTER STURGEON!

8hr Full Day Trip on the Fraser River valued at $650!!!

An ARM full of Sturgeon!

An ARM full of Sturgeon!

World Class Big Game Sport Fishing is what we’re all about and our guests come from across the globe year after year to experience the excitement that the Fraser River white Sturgeon fishing has to offer. The Fraser River sturgeon is British Columbia’s largest game fish, and once you’ve had an adrenalin filled battle with one of these prehistoric fish from the past you will be hooked! From the second one these giants are hooked, to the line screaming runs and the tail walking jumps it’s only then you can truly appreciate the sheer strength of these giant fish from the past. Many of our guests call these fish “The Fraser River Marlin” due to their jumping aerial displays.

Fraser River White Sturgeon can reach weights of over 1000 pounds and 12 feet in length. Many of our sturgeon fishing clients often catch fish in the 4 – 7 foot range with a few 8 and 9 footers every year tipping the scales at over 400 pounds!

From all of the staff at Pacific Angler we look forward to continue to be “Vancouver’s Store for the Fishing Enthusiast”.

Kind regards,
