Target Species

Here at Mountain Valley Sports Fishing, we specialize in fly fishing for Rainbow trout and Walleye. With over 35 years of experience, we have the best techniques and most productive patterns to get you into the fish.


Rainbow Trout

Rainbow trout are the main species we target. The Columbia is teeming with them, providing awesome action throughout the season. Whether they're sipping dry flies from the surface or cruising deep within the fast moving currents, we have the flies, locations and knowledge to hook into these beautiful fish.



If you haven't tried fly fishing for Walleye, you should. It's a lot of fun and can be more productive than spin fishing with the jig. We use special patterns and heavy lines on 8 wt. rods to target these great eating fish. The Columbia River near Castlegar produces many Walleye over 8 pounds and the limit here is currently 16 fish per person, per day - any size. You will be guided to the most productive hole via a Walleye tournament style Lund boat, equipped with a 130HP motor to get you up and down the river to the best holes. Walleye fishing on the fly is a great add-on to your trip.
