In this episode Fly Fusion Magazine editor, Derek Bird, along with associate editor, Jim McLennan, explore sections of British Columbia’s Cariboo River in their Water Master rafts. Though the river is a high volume stream, there are sections where rock outcrops provide a break in the flow, creating a trout sanctuary. Because of the fast flowing nature of the river, the wild rainbows are strong and readily take nymphs and dries. Subscribe to Fly Fusion Magazine and follow us on Instagram!
As the Quesnel River runs through the Cariboo region of British Columbia, it’s comparable to Jekyll and Hyde. The river that leaves the lake is slow and meandering – it’s a forgiving stream. If a fly angler misplaces a fly while casting from the drift boat, there’s time to pick up and hit the water again. After a few miles, the river transforms into a powerful and erosive agent moving quickly through the sparsely inhabited region. In this episode Fly Fusion Magazine Editor, Derek Bird along with Associate Editor Jim McLennan, have to adjust their angling tactics in order to successfully fool the strong resident rainbows.

In this episode Fly Fusion Magazine Editor, Derek Bird along with Associate Editor Jim McLennan fish the creek and river mouths that run into one of North America’s largest fjord lakes. The sockeye cycle draws them there, but they’re not fishing for the salmon that have traveled over 500 miles to spawn in the glacial streams feeding the lake. They’re there to take advantage of the wild rainbow trout that rely on the spawning salmon as a food source. Subscribe to Fly Fusion Magazine and follow us on Instagram!
