My name is Kerry Reed. I am owner/operator of Reel Adventures Charters in Nelson, British Columbia. We fish all year round for the Giant Gerard Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden ( Bull Trout). These Giant Rainbow’s are native to Kootenay Lake, but have been transplanted into many lakes now. They are the worlds largest wild Rainbow Trout.
Our favorite method of fishing these giants is trolling bucktail flies on the surface. The fight is amazing when hooking into one of these monsters.
Our prime seasons for these big trout are Oct/Nov/Dec, and then again in April/May.
If you’re planning a trip to B.C again soon, I would gladly take you out on World Class Kootenay Lake. I think it would make a great show and maybe highlight another area that hasn’t been exposed to the industry.
Let me know if it’s a possibility.

Thanks Kerry. I’ll have Paul Lord from our office emails you to possibly do a TV show catching those BC trophies…God bless you, Italo
