Back To Things To Do

The fish are biting throughout the Kootenays. Fresh clean lakes and streams are abundant in this area and there is a variety of fishing experiences for the beginner or avid angler. Detailed maps and information on fishing regulations are available at the Government Agent office in Creston. Use you fly-fishing or spinning and casting techniques to catch rainbow or cutthroat trout on Goat, Moyie or Kootenay Rivers. Fifteen minutes north of Creston are Duck and Leach Lakes, home to yellow perch, whitefish and some of the best largemouth bass fishing North America.

There are many more small lakes, rivers and creeks to try your luck including: Sanca, Kidd,Summit, and Meadow Creek, Boundary Lake, and Bridal Lake.

Over 100 km long and up to 10 km wide, Kootenay Lake has plenty of room for you to try your rod for a Bull Trout (Dolly Varden), Gerrard Rainbow Trout, Rock Mountain Whitefish, Burbot or a Kokanee (land-locked Salmon). You can fish from shore or from your boat, summer or winter.

Local fishing guides can show you some of the choicest fishing spots and help you choose the best lures to make the most of your experience. Our local sports equipment stores will also help you with fishing licenses, equipment, accessories, repairs or rentals. If you are feeling "reely" lucky, ask about the annual fishing derby held every fall.

Big game is abundant in the Kootenay region, as is Crown land open to hunters. Be aware of the areas with limited entry for hunting. Check with the local Government Agent or one of the local sporting and hunting goods stores for more information. Always check for any regulation changes and schedules of hunting.
