Planning a trip to fish around Fernie in early August as well as the third week of August . I will be driving from Montana with my one man pontoon boat and looking at put in access points along the Elk river. Can anyone provide any shuttle services for this area Thanks

I have always used Elk River Guiding company. Paul and his crew are top notch. They do like you to set up your shuttles as early as possible each day and often the day prior if possible, but he has been very accommodating to me on the occasions we've rolled into town late upon arrival and wanted to do a quick evening float.
Heads up depending on flows this year you are going to want to watch where you float with a pontoon if its your first time. Through town and south to Morrissey are about the calmest stretches. Hosmer to Town has some sketchy spots with a couple small rapids and a few spots with log jams and sweepers.
