Professional guide outfitter offering float trips and walk n' wade fly fishing.

The Elk River drainage boasts some of the world's most sought-after dry fly fishing and is located in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. A spectacular freestone river filled with deep pools, dancing riffles and a web of back channels that can have an angler hidden away for hours as they search for wild native trout.
