Hooked on Ice Fishing

It may seem as if nature is sleeping under a thick blanket of snow, but just beneath the frozen surface of Alberta’s lakes are hungry fish waiting to grab bait. Adding a guided ice fishing adventure to a ski holiday is one way to experience Alberta like a local. Fishing guides provide all the equipment, set up a heated shelter and even introduce visitors to the simple pleasure of cooking and eating their own fresh catch.
Calgary Area  
Ski at Canada Olympic Park or Nakiska and fish near Calgary, Kananaskis or Banff. The professional guides at Ice Fishing Alberta use the newest techniques in ice fishing. Cutting edge sonar helps locate the fish and an underwater video camera lets guests observe the exact moment when the fish takes their hook.

Banff Area
Ski at Sunshine, Lake Louise, or Norquay and fish in Kananaskis or Banff.  The specialists at Banff Fishing Unlimited have been fishing at Spray Lakes in Kananaskis for more than 25 years and have four heated huts on the lake. They even help guests cook the catch. Banff Adventures Unlimited offers guided tours from Banff or Canmore and has special tours that combine snowmobiling with ice fishing.  

Jasper Area
Ski at Marmot Basin and fish in Jasper or Hinton. Whether it’s northern pike or rainbow trout, the guides from Rocky Mountain Fishing Adventures will teach guests how to land the big ones.
