View Full Version : Calgary Area fly fishing info?

06-08-2007, 01:50 PM
I am planning a trip to Calgary with some buddies in late July/eary August and have had a hard time finding a lot of info on the fishing in that area.

We plan to hit the Red Deer and Bow with guides, but from the few articles I have found, there seems to be a number of other waters to hit. We're going for a week camping so we need to entertain ourselves on a Walk/Wade basis for the rest of the trip...

Anyone have any experience/info on the area? Good resources for trip planning?

I was hoping to find the equivalent of the Nor Cal Fly Fishing guidebook and the Delorme map for Alberta...no such luck so far...

Many thanks,

Contact Nancy Siegler of the Lady Bugs fly club in El Dorado Hills.

She has been there several times and knows it well.


You can call or email her.

I have fished the Bow Anad although its great, I love the area a couple of hours southwest of Calgary (or about hour from the Bow) - you can fish the best water, Elk & Wigwam Rivers- plus the Crowsnest on the drive over and several rivers and streams (small rivers) around Fernie, BC

her is a link to the best guide in the Fernie area (also guides the Bow), but look at the descriptions of the diff waters and search on each for more info. I know there is a BC fishing guide, but cant remember the name.
