Kootenay Wild's activity is conducting fishing charters on Kootenay Lake for Gerard Rainbow Trout and Bull Trout . We conduct full day charters ( 8 hrs. ) using our 30ft. Bayliner and barbecue smokies or hamburgers for lunch . Our Bayliner has been set up for trolling on the surface , off of our planner boards and down deep , off of our down riggers . All the equipment is supplied and our clients get to sit back and wait for a strike on one of our lines . To start off we show our clients safety equipment , life jackets , and our Bayliners' cabin and head operation . Our clients are shown how to operate our fishing equipment and an orientation on how our planner boards and down riggers work . We have taken many clients out fishing for their first time with great results. We use barbless hooks so landing a rainbow that is dancing on the surface is both challenging and exciting . Our clients can catch and release if they wish . The limit is 5 trout per day per license . Any fish our clients keep are cleaned , packaged and frozen at our facility . In the event you catch your trophy of a lifetime, Kootenay Wild offers full taxidermy services . Kootenay Lake is the largest natural fresh water lake in British Columbia and is situated between the Purcell Mountains and the Selkirk Mountains so our clients are treated to a truly majestic setting while waiting for a Gerard to strike .
