Overlooking the Elk River, Brooks Creek Ranch (BCR) is Fernie's newest luxury fly fishing lodge. BCR offers a secluded feel while still remaining rather convenient to access. The lodge offers unique access to British Columbia's finest trout waters by foot, boat, and helicopter. Independently powered and sustainable, the lodge features spectacular amenities in complete seclusion bordered by stunning views of Mt. Hosmer and Three Sisters range. Whether an avid angler or seeking a serene escape, BCR is the destination for a memorable and repeatable journey. Season runs July 2-October 20, 2024.
The Elk River is a clear water dry fly fishery with excellent hatches and terrestrial fishing for Westslope cutthroat and opportunistic streamer scenarios for bull trout. Explore additional provincial waters and venture into neighboring Alberta for trout species and water diversity.
Six (6) guests weekly enjoy inclusive single ensuite rooms, well-appointed living spaces, hot tub and game room accompanied by gourmet cuisine tailored to their preferences. The deck – a focal point – offers stunning views of the mountains, Elk River, and lodge home pool.
We recommend 4-6-weight rods/reels with floating lines for presenting dry flies to cutties, bows, and browns. Bull trout call for heavier 7 and 8-weight tackle. A complete gear list will be provided with confirmation packages. Frontiers consultants have first-hand tackle and fly recommendations.
Brooks Creek is reached via Calgary or Cranbrook, Canada or Kalispell, MT. Combine Fernie, BC with trout fishing in Montana or on the Bow River, Alberta for a two-destination western experience. Fishing scenarios are varied from classic drift boat floats to jet boats to hiking and wet wading creeks. Guides will be equipped with bear spray as needed. Commonly a basic BC and Alberta fishing license is required, daily specialty river permits are purchased on-site as needed. The lodge is full service but a dinner and beverage in nearby Fernie is enjoyable. A hot tub is available–bring your suit.
Rates – 6 night / 5 day stay - $6500 US per angler. $4500 for non-fishing partners. Includes accommodations, classified river license fees, beer, wine, food and guiding. Excluding base BC and Alberta licenses, gratuities, transfer to / from the lodge and any additional purchases.
