Walk and Wade southern alberta

About this Trip

A short 1 to 2 hour drive from Calgary are hundreds of miles of Blue Ribbon creeks and streams that wind their way down off the eastern slopes of the rockies through the foothills and out onto the sprawling Alberta prairies. It is these streams and creeks that offer anglers some of the best fly fishing opportunities in North America. If you are looking for a more remote fishing opportunity that offers exceptional fishing, lack of crowds and spectacular scenery on lesser known small streams, spring creeks and rivers of this will meet you expectations

The Oldman River and tribs offers excellent opportunities to walk and wade small to mid size freestone streams teeming with cutthroat, rainbow, bulls and brown trout. They provide superb fishing for the new angler with consistent summer hatches offering dry fly fishing through to the fall. Chances at large bull trout on skillfully placed, aggressively stripped streamers are an added bonus.

The Red Deer River tributaries offer some of the best brown trout streams in North America, and these streams can offer great opportunities if fished with a guide. The key to these brown trout streams is the local knowledge and expertise of a guide, and they are essential to a positive fishing experience. Fish average between 15”-20” with chances at truly trophy browns. Great early season hatches of Brown and Green Drakes bring these fish to the surface, and many fish are taken on large streamer patterns. Later summer and early fall give way to fish aggressively taking caddis and terrestrials off the surface. Anglers should be proficient casters of at least intermediate to expert skill level to maximize this experience.
