FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Our mission is simple. Drive less and fish more to maximize your time on the water. The majority of our fishing spots are in the surrounding Whistler area. We believe these fishing spots offer beautiful scenery and great opportunities to catch lots of wild fish including the occasional big one. We don’t specifically target large fish unless we speak with the client prior to booking to discuss potential opportunities. Unless specifically requested, we DO NOT take clients into the remote wilderness. The spots we fish are never busy but there is the chance of bumping into other anglers. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions so that we can try our best to meet your expectations

We will be ice fishing for stocked Rainbow Trout on one of the local lakes right here in Whistler. The fish range between 8 & 14 inches in length but if you are lucky there is the chance of hooking an 18 + inch trout. This is a great experience for those new to ice fishing. I will set up a large tent-like ice fishing shelter which will have a heater inside to keep you nice and toasty. We also put you in a pair of insulated winter boots with ice cleats for warmth & safety.

We catch fish on 95% of our trips because we are experts at what we do. We have a thorough understanding of the water bodies in the Whistler area and are super adaptive to the changing conditions. In the rare circumstance the fishing is slow (which happens from time to time) your guide will extend the length of the trip at no additional cost to you. We truly do everything in our power to put every single client we take out on a fish.

We have a minimum age requirement of 10 years old for our ice fishing trips.  All minors under the age of 19 MUST be accompanied by a paying adult

We have a minimum age requirement of 12 years old for our walk & wade trips. All guests must weigh between 80-250 lbs (36-113 kgs).  All minors under the age of 19 MUST be accompanied by a paying adult

Customers will receive a full refund LESS any processing fees with 72 hours notice of cancellation. We are a small operation and last minute cancellations SIGNIFICANTLY  affect us. If you cancel within that time frame we will only issue a refund IF we are able to fill the slot. You may also choose to receive a full credit that can be used anytime in the future. This credit is transferable to others as well. Do not book with us if you don’t agree with those terms. 

We fish rain or shine. Please do not put such an emphasis on the weather forecast. Mountain weather is VERY unpredictable and changes day to day.  Please do not book with us if you would cancel because of rain. We can’t control the weather and these cancellations SIGNIFICANTLY affect us. We firmly believe in our ability to catch fish when its raining. Thank you for your understanding

We have a STRICT catch & release policy in place. Under NO EXCEPTIONS do we eat the fish we catch. You can give an angler a fish or you can teach them how to fish. We choose to just teach 🙂

No we do not. ALL of our fishing trips are walk & wade which means we put you in a pair of waterproof waders and boots which allows us to walk in rivers and lakes while staying completely dry

Only those that have paid for the experience can attend. We do NOT allow  people to tag along for free to watch or take photos. This disrupts our business.
