Please note: If you are renting a vessel, a boating license is NOT required. We will issue a Boat Safety Checklist that will act as your license for your rental time with us.



Kootenay Lake offers some of the best fishing in British Columbia, and our charters have landed some of the most impressive catches on the lake. Kokanee Salmon, Dolly Varden, Whitefish, Ling Cod and world-record Gerrard Rainbow Trout all populate the lake.

Our vessels operate year round, with heated comfort for popular winter fishing. We provide custom-built rod holders, updated information on the best fishing and current regulations, and free freezer space at the office. For Fishing Regulations, see our link below.
