Seeing how the Canadian border is currently closed to U.S. travelers, there is a very good chance my trip may never come to fruition.

But if it does I might be able to fish a few days in the Fernie area the last half of July.

Can anyone please make a recommendation for a guide. I might want one day of drift boat fishing and one day of walk and wading.

Thanks so much.

You will need to contact one of the fly shops in Fernie. It’s a nice area to fish. If I recall they require the purchase of a special permit for each day you fish, in addition to a license.

Yes, I believe that is correct.

Several of the rivers have a daily quota on the number of people allowed to fish each day and you need day permit.

Which makes me think this might not be the wilderness experience I was hoping for, at least not to those rivers.
