Home of the largest strain of rainbow trout

Pound for pound it's hard to match the fight of a wild Gerrard Rainbow Trout, also called by some a Kamloops Rainbow Trout. Many heart-stopping jumps, and long hard runs are the norm as they try to shake the lure out of their mouth.


If your looking for the largest strain of wild rainbow trout in the world, then Kootenay Lake is where you want to be. Many fish over 20 lbs are caught each year. This is truly a world class trophy rainbow trout fishery. There is also great Bull Trout or Dolly Varden fishing in Kootenay Lake.


Trolling bucktail flies, Lyman plugs, spoons and Apex's are the lures of choice.


Our boats have cabins and are fully heated for your comfort during the cooler winter months. What a great way to beat cabin fever in the winter.


Drop me a line, and I'd be happy to help you plan this great fishing adventure.
