Our History

Growing up in the Kootenays has its advantages.  Spending almost every weekend out camping with family and fishing with Dad and Grandpa, owner/operator, Kerry Reed  was exposed to this great outdoor lifestyle as a child.  And fishing was his passion as a kid and still is.

And so, back in 1998, Reel Adventures was born.

After experiencing the excitement of reeling in big fish consistently, it was time to start sharing that excitement with others.

Starting out with 1 boat and guide on Kootenay Lake and then adding a smaller boat for the Columbia River, we slowly started to build our business.

And now, after years of enjoying our fishery, Reel Adventures has expanded the business to incorporate a whole network of boats and guides for both the Columbia River and Kootenay Lake, as well as adding the westcoast Salmon fishery to our resume.

With the added boats and guides, we could now offer corporate retreats and handle any size of group.  This has helped our business grow and hope to keep growing in the future.

We love to fish, but even more fun is taking other people fishing.
