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. If it’s a nice day you can move around the lake a lot more. This way, you can take in all the beautiful scenery the area has to offer which includes Whistler and Blackcomb mountain in the background. There is a good chance we will have the lake all to ourselves. It’s the perfect getaway when you need a break from skiing and want some quiet time. This is truly a Canadian experience that you must cross off your bucket list

We would never jeopardize the safety of our clients on unsafe ice. We require a minimum of 4 inches of clear ice before setting foot on a frozen lake. This is a general guideline to follow. We often see ice thickness in excess of 12 inches here in Whistler so you have nothing to worry about!
There is a reason it is called fishing and not catching 🙂 Although we catch fish on the majority of our trips…there are times when the fishing can be slow. It’s just part of the game. With that being said, under these circumstances our guides will do everything in their power to put you on fish and will often extend the trip length if the fishing is tough. In addition we also have a fish finder for ice fishing which is called a “flasher” which dramatically increases the chance of catching fish!
You can give an angler a fish…or you can teach them how to fish and our company believes in just teaching. We have a STRICT catch & release policy in place. No exceptions are made
