Canadian fishing trips can offer a wide variety of fun experiences for your group! From fly fishing to ice fishing, or even deep sea fishing, Canadian fishing trips can be fully customized to catch just what you’re looking for. Proper research and planning will help ensure you have the best experience possible.
When planning your Canadian fishing trip, you’ll first want to assess what type of trip you are looking for. Are you hoping to go fly fishing? Are you looking for a fully guided trip or more of an independent experience? Would you prefer upscale lodging or are you okay “roughing it”? Determining what will make your time most enjoyable and narrowing down the options will help you make the best of the experience.
Are you interested in a walleye tournament? Want to catch a world class salmon or a record setting bluefin? If you’ve got a bucket list that includes one of these, take it into account when planning your trip as well. Canadian fishing trips can be fully customized based on what you’re looking to catch, and you can fish in regions that also offer a variety of opportunities. In particular, British Columbia offers freshwater and saltwater fishing opportunities. Anglers could be found fishing in mountain streams one day and in the Pacific ocean the next!
Once you have settled on a location and narrowed down what type of experience you’re looking for, you’ll be able to do more research about securing the proper permits, lodging and gear necessary to have the best trip possible. Get in contact with the local visitor center for information about hiring a guide, finding lodging, obtaining the proper permits and other information about local hot spots. Proper planning can ensure you’re experience is both fun and fruitful. Consider meeting up with a guide who will be able to provide not only the gear but also the insider knowledge about the area. They’ll be able to show you where fish are biting! On a budget? Consider talking to people at the local bait shop or dock for advice on where to cast out.
Over-planning can take the fun and adventure out of of your Canadian fishing trip. While you’re there, take time to take in both the beauty of your surroundings and enjoy the experience of catching fish. Each setting will provide a slightly different experience so appreciate every facet, and make the most of the experience!
