When the snow has melted and the rain has stopped Fernie starts flourishing into a summer play-land for people of all ages! With breathtaking hiking and biking, Fernie also boasts the amazing Elk river. The Elk river is only a short 10min walk from Snow Valley Motel. It has incredible fly fishing with its healthy populations of Wild Westslope Cutthroat Trout, Bull Trout and Mountain Whitefish. Fly fishing is accessible to all skill levels with a couple of local companies offering fly fishing tours.
The river opens for fly fishing on June 15th this year and is amazing even into October! We hope to see you in Fernie for an awesome fly fishing season!!
