The Fording River is part of the Columbia River basin and is a tributary to the Elk River.
It runs south through a tight valley and collects other tribs before it flows into the Elk River north of Sparwood.
Many that visit the area take the ½ hour hike to Josephine Falls to see the River cascading 25m/82ft into a canyon.
This river fishes best when the water temperatures have warmed things up; being a cold mountain stream you can be sure to find some decent size cutthroat and bull trout cruising the pools, riffles and pocket water.
There are a few local guides that know the secret spots to fish on this river; give us a shout to book one of our Fording River Specialists.
