Whistler actually began as a summer resort with a fishing lodge built at what now is Rainbow Park. Fishing in the area is amazing whether you prefer looking for trout in the many lakes or fly fishing on one of the area’s rivers. There are a number of professional guides available who specialize in fly fishing, spin fishing, salmon fishing, sturgeon fishing, trolling, river fishing and ice fishing! No experience is necessary. This is a great summer activity for kids and the family.
