Immerse yourself in the beautiful Columbia River valley and its tributaries by walking the river banks of the Akolkolex River and the Mighty Columbia River. Located about 35km south-east of Revelstoke, lays the pristine glacier waters of the Akolkolex River. Join us as we search for Westslope cutthroat using fly rods or light spinning gear. Keep an eye out for wildlife on our drive to and from the river!

This river is fairly off the beaten path which means there are limited to no trails. Waders and wading experience is required. These trips are not recommended for kids and do require some physical ability.
