Fishing Summer Outdoor Activities

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 in the middle of a city. Book a float plane to a secluded lake where the fish practically jump into your boat. Sleep in a shoreline log cabin or a backcountry lodge and dream of ravenous Canadian trout, pike, walleye and grayling fighting for your favorite lure.
