Ice Fishing Winter Outdoor Activities

The tip of your fishing rod suddenly jerks toward the slushy hole in the ice. From within a heated shelter perched on the ice, you grab the rod and start reeling in madly. It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for. Cold temperatures don’t sway the denizens of the deep – lake and bull trout, walleye, northern pike, perch and arctic grayling can be caught in Alberta lakes during winter. Your guide will set up your heated shelter, equipment and introduce you to the bliss of cooking and eating your own fresh catch. Get hooked on a genuinely Canadian experience.
