Helicopter Fly Fishing

Enjoy a thrilling helicopter ride through BC’s coastal mountain range over towering mountain peaks and alpine meadows. Your helicopter pilot doubles as your guide and will take you to some of the most remote and pristine rivers and lakes in the Pacific Northwest.

Fishing opportunities change throughout the season, with different species available at certain times of the year. Please note that all fly-fishing experiences are catch and release. Helicopter Fly Fishing tours are guided by weather, visibility and river level conditions which will determine which river systems and lakes you visit during your trip.

Fly-fishing experience is not necessary, but fly-casting does require a degree of practice and skill. We recommend a fly-fishing lesson at our trout ponds for beginners prior to this activity. To best enjoy this tour, guests must be able to comfortably board and exit the aircraft and walk for an extended period on rocky and uneven riverbanks.

Charter tours can be customized to your interests and are guided by weather and visibility conditions.
