Hike to Fish in Kananaskis Provincial Park


The Canadian Rocky Mountains offer a dramatic landscape and can be the ultimate challenge for the fly angler.

This tour takes us up to a tranquil glacier fed lake that is surrounded by majestic towering peaks. These high mountain lakes can be a delight to fish as they are teaming with Cutthroat or Brook Trout. The scenery is so spectacular that the fishing is actually the bonus.

These are some my favourite fishing destinations. In this area, we have numerous lakes to choose from. I grew up fishing these lakes, and love to fish them to this day. Some destinations offer more of a challenge for experienced anglers, while others are great for beginners. Let me know what you are looking for and I can accommodate your needs.
