in the many lakes and rivers of the region is a popular pastime.
The season differs depending on the watershed and even individual
water bodies so it is important to inform yourself before heading
out with the rod.
main season is usually from mid June to September and in winter
you can try yourself at ice-fishing on some of the lakes. Fly-fishing
is more prevalent as live or scented bait are not allowed in most
locations. Also , there are limits on the type and size of fish
that can be kept and some, like the Bull Trout, are protected. Different
species of trout and Rocky Mountain Whitefish are found in the area.
regulations and licences can be obtained from various stores in
the region. If you are serious about the sport, we recommend you
hire a guide (www.tailwaterdrifters.com)
for a day or two and head for the Ram River, which is considered
as one of the best streams in Alberta. If you like horses AND fishing,
