Pitch in and help clean-up the banks of the Elk River! Meet-ups in Fernie, Sparwood and Elkford are as follows:

Fernie - Annex Park
Sparwood - REC centre
Elkford - Race Trac gas station

When the sun stays up late, and going barefoot is the walk of life. When an afternoon bevy turns into an evening beer, turns into a late night dance and a bike ride home, with the warm breeze flickering between my hair. Summer is the best time of year.

Time: 
1:00pm - 4:00pm

Get involved and show your love for nature and the Elk River. You'll be welcome to participate here in Fernie, and will be meeting at Annex Park at 1pm. 

If you're unable to make it to Fernie, but will still like to get involved, other events are being held Sparwood (meeting at the Leisure Centre at 1pm), and in Elkford (meeting at Fas Gas parking lot at 10am).

Volunteers are asked to meet at the staging areas, adopt a site, clean it up and participate in the volunteer appreciation event.

 

What a summer, it’s hot and the rivers are not! If you want to float, boat, fish or soak it’s time to unplug, put the phone down and head out to one of our beautiful rivers.

Summer time means fly fishing time in Fernie. Here are five important pieces of information to help you enjoy your slice of fly fishing heaven.

July is the month fly fishing in Fernie gets off to a fresh start every year. Millions of litres of fresh water flows down the tributaries into the Elk River as the winter snow pack melts under the warmth of the summer sun. Anglers, having suffered a long, cold, grey winter are keen to get out into some fresh air and sunshine in anticipation of some of the very best dry fly trout fishing anywhere on the planet.
