THINGS TO DO:
“Fish on!” I holler as another gorgeous rainbow trout splashes up through the hole in the ice. This one definitely looks big enough to be a keeper. Ice fishing in the Athabasca region of northern Alberta blends the perfect mix of solitude and connection – to the fish beneath the frozen waterways and to fellow anglers out on the ice. You’ve got your own fishing hole, your favourite rod and bait, and the total peace of these wide open spaces – a peace broken only by the delighted laughter from your companions as they land their own catch of the day!
