Fishing Summer Outdoor Activities

Let’s be clear. The fish are magnificent. But those long stretches between the action of reeling one in? The perfect excuse for soaking up Alberta’s natural beauty. A day of fishing on a secluded lake surrounded by forest or mountains, or in a glacier-fed big-city river is a day well-spent. ● Go far: Fly north to where the trout and pike swim in the shadows of boreal forests. Panfry your catch of the day on the shore for the best dinner ever. Then go fish some more because the daylight lasts forever in summer. 

Full disclosure, I am one of the dummies. However we always get questions about fishing at Peace River Cabins and Outdoors so here is a collection of half-truths, gained from impolite grilling of successful fishermen, anecdotes and general references.

Fishing Spots

Beaver River Trestle

Cold Lake, Alberta

Look down. Way down. The Beaver River Trestle, at one kilometer long and 60 metres high, is a highlight of the Iron Horse Trail. It is accessible from Cold Lake via three km of the multi-use Trail. Or you can drive to the west end by turning north off Highway 28 at the Y Road and parking at the trail access point. The 300 km Iron Horse Trail connects many of the area’s natural gems and tourist attractions. ATVers use the Iron Horse Trail to access countless kilometres of backcountry trails and cutlines that weave through the region’s rugged terrain.
