Calgary’s Bow River is world famous for trout fishing, and there are kilometres of other fish-filled streams and rivers that stretch from the city south to the Canadian border with Montana, and west to the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains.
There are many trout-filled lakes in the area (they’re generally ice-free by April), including Police Outpost Lake near Cardston and Beauvais Lake near Pincher Creek.
Following is a list of local fishing resources:
All people sport fishing in Alberta require a licence, aside for children younger than 16, seniors older than 65 and First Nations peoples. Costs for the license range from under 26 dollars for Canadian residents, to just over seventy dollars for non-residents.
Licenses can be purchased at stores that feature outdoor camping and fishing equipment such as Canadian Tire and Wholesale Sports.
