Fishing by Region
You have six regions in the province from which to base your Alberta fishing adventures, each with its own special magic and beauty.

Alberta Central
In this region, you'll discover excellent fishing for pike and walleye, perch and lake whitefish. Lac La Biche and Cold Lake are popular destinations for lake trout, walleye, pike and perch. The Red Deer River and Gull, Sylvan, Pigeon, Pine, Buffalo and Buck lakes will not disappoint.

Alberta North
Up north, you'll find stellar fishing for pike, walleye, perch, lake trout and Arctic grayling. Most of the lake areas are accessible from the main highways. Experience "drive and fish" at its finest on the largest vehicle-accessible lake in the
  province: Lesser Slave Lake, home to the GoldenWalleye Classic, North America's biggest walleye tournament. Looking for a more remote experience? There are fly-in fishing camps and Alberta fishing lodges for every budget. Many of the fly-in facilities use Fort McMurray as a jumping-off point.

Alberta South
Stretching south to the U.S. border, you'll find excellent stream fishing. Rainbow, brown, brook, cut-throat and bull trout are all plentiful in the many rivers and streams in the vicinity of Crowsnest Pass. Between June and October, the North Ram River and its tributaries are popular havens for cut-throat trout.

Calgary & Area
To some folk, the Bow River in Calgary is more important than the city. Why? Because the Bow is ranked as one of the top ten trout streams in North America. Moving through the heart of the city, the river's brown and rainbow trout lure anglers from far-away places (as well as the locals, who are still trying to keep it a secret).
