Good to know before you go

Fishing in Boundary Country

Drop your line and let nature takes its course. Fishing is almost that easy in Boundary Country. Kokanee, Rainbow trout, small mouth bass, burbot and whitefish are almost always biting.

Christina and Jewel Lake are the most popular lakes. Ask the locals where to find the best fishing holes. There are hundreds of small lakes, creeks, and streams in the area. There’s also the Kettle and Granby Rivers. They are are open to a variety of fishing styles. Fish from shore, fly-fish, or use a drift boat. You’ll find fish biting all across the region. Not far off the beaten path, you’ll find Conkle, Williamson, Wilgress and Xenia Lakes. You should also check out the fishing spots where the Kettle and Granby Rivers meet.

Learn to Fish

There are no age limits when it comes to fishing. If you have the patience to wait for a bite then you can fish. Learn to fly fish from local, avid fishers. Pop in to the Victorian Motel and RV Park in Grand Forks. Drop in either the first or third Thursday of the month. Someone is usually there between October and April. While you’re there, they’d love to teach you the intricacies of tying flies.

Begin your family fishing tradition at Jewel Lake. Start on the water or by the shores of lakes and rivers. It’s another great memory to share as you help bait hooks and then help little hands cast for Rainbows. Most of all, enjoy these undisturbed moments together. You’re making memories that will last a lifetime.

A Four Season Sport

You can ice fish in the winter and after the ice has melted, come back and shore fish in the spring and fall. Come summer you can fish in the lakes and rivers all day long. Fly, lure or stringer, you don’t need much more than a rod here. That and time on your hands for unlimited adventures fishing Boundary Country.
