If you are new to our area, and it is within your budget, we highly recommend that you hire a guide for at least your first day of fishing. Quesnel Lake especially is a huge water to fish and you will have far better and faster results if you seek the wisdom of a guide.

For the ultimate fishing trip, consider experiencing our unique watershed on a fully guided package. Experience the benefit of having a guide with you at all times – have the experience of a lifetime. Having a guide increases your likelihood of catching the fish you have only dreamed of. Having a guide gives you added comfort, safety and security on the water. Having a guide gives you access to the secret lures and flies guides normally share only amongst themselves.

Both experts as well as beginners will find Elysia's guides knowledge, expertise and teaching style invaluable in their quest for that special catch.

Whether its fly tying, fly casting or actually finding and landing the big fish, you will be comforted to know you are in the very capable hands of our guides.

We have biographies and testimonials on all of our guides. Further, all of our guides are licensed, have many decades of experience and training, and have worked for Elysia Resort for several years. Rest assured you will be in very qualified hands at Elysia Resort.

Of course, a first-rate guide service implies careful attention to your comfort and safety on the water, so relax in knowing that we keep our equipment very carefully maintained.

Note: Our guides do not live on site and may require a 2-day minimum booking when guiding. One day of guiding may be possible if someone else has booked within the dates you are enquiring.
