Alberta - Overview 
Alberta is a Province within the country of Canada. We are bordered to the south by the United States and to the west by British Colombia and the east by Saskatchewan and the north by the North West Territories.

Alberta has a population of over 3.6 million people. Major cities include Calgary and the capital city called Edmonton.

Calgary is the central hub for oil and gas exploration in Canada but the province as a whole is highly invested in the oil and gas industry and all the spin off activity it generates.

Many Albertans enjoy the outdoors. Common activities including hiking, golfing, camping, cycling, hunting and of course fishing.

Albertans are not stuck on fishing in just the Summer months. For many it is a year round activity. Rivers such as the Bow River, a blue ribbon and well known trout river sees activity year round. Our chinook winds bring warm air into the province during the winter and temperatures in Calgary are often above freezing. Ice fishing is a common activity with ice thicknesses approaching 1.3 m (4 feet) thick in some areas. Albertans are a hardy bunch.

Rainbow trout and Brown Trout are not the only species targeted in the province. We boast excellent walleye, northern pike, yellow perch, goldeye, rocky mountain whitefish and lake whitefish fisheries. There are Arctic Grayling to be caught in the north but also some stocked populations in near Calgary and a native population in the Belly River drainage in SW Alberta.

While sturgeon are still recovering, they make for excellent sport fishing. Golden trout have been stocked in some high mountain lakes as well as cutthroat trout making for some challenging yet rewarding hiking.

Bull trout populations are recovering and Kananaskis Lakes is a great place to catch and release some exceptionally large bull trout.

So whether you are just dropping in for a day and want to find a guide on the Bow River or in the Edmonton area, or wish to plan a longer term visit at a remote fishing lodge, look no further than www.IWantToFish.com.
