Ice fishing in Pemberton, BC is a feast of adventure

Imagine this: you’re in the wilds of British Columbia in a town that was only accessible by train until the 1960’s; fishing for rainbow trout, bull trout, kokanee, cutthroat trout and pike minnows in the shadows of mountain ranges that are so spectacular they’ve appeared in Hollywood blockbuster movies. If you want to know what it feels like to be lost in nature, this is it. Don’t forget to bring your camera.

Ice typically forms on the lakes in Pemberton around November and remains there until March. Most ice fishing is done in Pemberton because the fish there are much larger. Trout from the Pemberton area easily reach upwards of 10lbs and large trout (like the one Brad is holding below) could feed you for a whole week! All of the full day ice fishing trips come with Pemberton Fishfinder’s very own “fish catch guarantee”.

What you’ll need for ice fishing in Pemberton

  • Warm clothing: hat, boots, gloves and thick socks!
  • You should be prepared for subzero temperatures. Wearing old ski pants is a great way to keep your legs warm.
  • Valid BC Freshwater Fishing License

Brad Knowles – Head Guide

Brand Knowles Pemberton Fishfinder
Brad was born and raised in Pemberton, British Columbia Canada. As a young boy, the small town of Pemberton didn’t offer Brad and his friends many things other than great fishing. So every waking moment Brad would be seen fishing the local rivers and lakes on a daily basis with his farther and siblings.

Brad’s years of hands-on experience lead him to become an angling guide and it was his reputation as “the man to see if you want to catch fish” that eventually lead to Brad hosting is own fishing show called ELITE FISHING – seen by 100,000 people a week on Whistler Cable. Brad’s ability to catch fish makes him one of the best guides in Canada. His passion for fishing is only matched by his love for seeing other people catch fish!

“We do not just provide a scenic adventure for the whole family and friends, we want you to catch fish! Our Ice fishing season books very quickly, do not miss out on this extraordinary fishing adventure while visiting Whistler and Pemberton this Winter.” – Brad
