Let’s see, I’ve shined the Getaways spotlight on a back-to-basics hideaway in northern Michigan, a legendary modern, yet rustic lodge owned by Bass Pro Shops, a tropical retreat that is heaven for inshore anglers, and a famous resort by an even more famous angler that’s situated right on one of the most famous bass lakes in the country. Where to next? Well, I’m pointing the compass north this month; way north, actually. That’s right, folks. Get your passports ready and pack your wool socks, because this month’s Getaways brings us to British Columbia, Canada, and the Sonora Resort.
Less than an hour from Vancouver, the Sonora Resort is nestled against the majestic scenery of British Columbia’s untouched wilderness. You can reach the resort via boat or aircraft, and if you would like the agents at the resort to arrange your travel plans for you, they can do so with no trouble. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more luxurious resort anywhere, as each of Sonora Resort’s accommodating rooms are designed to help you rest and enjoy yourself in comfort and tranquility. The rooms offer breathtaking views of the coast and mountains and some are also equipped with amenities such as fireplaces, hot tubs, and vaulted ceilings that will make you feel as if you’re in a mansion.
Let’s not forget why you’re at the resort in the first place, however: the fishing. Not only is Sonora Resort equipped with its own fleet of salmon boats, expertly outfitted to guide visiting anglers on a bountiful trip out to the cool waters, but the nearby landscape offers some of the best fly fishing opportunities you’ll ever find. Furthermore, the resort is home to a fly fishing guide who has taught the art for over ten years, as well as a 100,000-gallon trout pond for anyone who wants lessons on fly angling. Top all that off with an expert staff that is ready and willing to box and transport your day’s catch so that it stays fresh, and you have all the ingredients for a perfect fishing getaway.
Following an exciting day of salmon fishing and fly angling in the rivers, you can relax in style at the Island Currents Spa, and then sit down with your fellow travellers at the resort’s world-class restaurant.
Fly-in fishing resorts are perfect for anglers who are looking to get away from the bustle and congestion that we all endure on a daily basis. Not only is Sonora Resort a prime salmon and trout location, but the modern, yet simple, accommodations, along with the spa and restaurant, are a great treat at the end of a long day of fishing. If you’re looking for a fishing trip that is a step up from the traditional drive to the nearest lake, without giving up the luxuries of everyday life, then I suggest dusting off your passport and calling the Sonora Resort to reserve your trip before someone else beats you to it.
