I've been meaning to write this review ever since we dropped by in the summer. We were on our big yearly road trip to go fly fishing, as a DIY trip. My buddy's wading boots had blown out and we were in need of new ones. When we dropped by the Elk River Guide Co. on our way through Fernie,... More

Thank you for your comments. I am sorry your experience was not what you were looking for and unfortunately I don’t know all the details as it was last summer and this is the first I am hearing about it. I do know staff can be very busy in the mornings with licensing and the potentially large numbers of anglers... More

Had the opportunity to hit the water with the guys from Elk River Guiding Company and what a treat it was. We had a party of 4 with skill levels ranging from beginner to intermediate and myself being a fishing guide in Pemberton BC. The day was well organized and professional. I had my father, the beginner in the boat... More

Love this fly shop. They always have what we need. The guides are great, and you can buy or rent your gear. They even have some shuttle services available for moving your car down the river for you. We always use these guys.

We booked 4 days of guided fishing ahead of time on the Elk River. Then the worst floods they'd had in BC and Alberta for ten years stirred up the rivers and left us with a bunch of YUK. The guides were fantastic here though and tried to occupy us with stream and lake fishing. They were knowledgeable and the... More

For a great day of fishing try the Elk River Guiding Company. The office staff were really helpful, and our guide constantly went the extra mile for us. I lost count of the times she rowed back upstream so we could fish the good runs more than once. She also knew her stuff and found the right flies for us... More
