An electrifying jolt courses through you as a trophy fish strikes. Your line sings, vibrating, flying off your reel. Suddenly a blinding flash of silver explodes through the surface, sparkling in the morning sun. Just when you think it can’t get any better than this, you catch a glimpse of your surroundings. The glassy stillness of the lake, the tree lined shore and snow-capped peaks in the distance unfold under an endless sky.
Alberta’s lakes, rivers and streams number in the thousands. With so many unspoiled waterways, a spot to drop a line is never far away. Take the gang on a day trip and fish from a boat or right from shore. Experience world class trout fishing on a river right in the middle of a city.
Time for a major expedition? Getting there is half the fun when you take a float plane to a remote lake where the fish will practically jump into your boat. Sleep in a shoreline log cabin or a backcountry lodge and dream of ravenous trout, pike, walleye and grayling fighting for your favourite lure.
