Fly Fishing on the Mitchell River

Last week I was photographing a fly fishing expedition led by Doug Mooring and Josh Mackenzie of Cariboo Rivers Trout Fishing Adventures. The clients were back for a third time and I can understand why. The setting was spectacular. The Mitchell River drains from the Interior Rainforest of the Cariboo Mountains and empties into the North Arm of Quesnel Lake. Just motoring up the river was an adventure. At every bend in the river the landscape changed from one dramatic mountain vista to another.

The guides knew every fish hole along the way, so there was never a dull moment throughout the day. It felt great to be alive.
