Where We Are Located

Our home water is the mighty Columbia River, which flows through the cities of Castlegar and Trail, British Columbia. The section of river we fish contains dozens of fast moving currents, pockets, and back eddies, which produce world-class Rainbow trout and Walleye year round. The Columbia is a large, fast flowing river, and having an experienced guide is recommended for drifting this system.
