One of the finest Trout rivers in the world
Using stable and highly maneuverable MacKenzie River drift boats, we'll expertly float you into some of the nicest holes and most productive holding areas in the river.
On our Upper Bow River trips, we're primarily fishing for Brown Trout. We'll also do trips to the Lower Bow, east of Calgary, in the hunt for Brown and Rainbow Trout.
Banff Fishing Unlimited boasts the longest-running guide service on the Upper Bow River.
Just below Banff townsite, the Bow River winds it's way through the mountains of Banff National Park and out through the front ranges of the Rocky Mountains to the prairies boasting 40km (25 miles) of catch & release waters. This section of The Bow River is a freestone mountain river. The wild and wary Trout in the river make for exceptional sport.
"A simply magical experience", to enjoy the sensation of fishing in a wild mountain river, as it flows through the incredible mountain scenery of the Canadian Rockies.
We offer Float and Wade trips April through October.
Our MacKenzie River drift boats can seat two anglers. We can cater to groups of up to 4 with 2 guides and 2 boats.
All gear is provided, including complete fly and spin fishing gear, breathable chest waders, custom tied flies, and lures, at no extra charge.
Our guides are expert teachers, and will give top-notch instruction. What better place for a novice to learn how to fly fish or spin fish - in a wild, free flowing river, surrounded by some of the most impressive mountain scenery in the world.
Expert anglers can benefit too, as many well kept secrets can be revealed.
The fish in this river are wild and self-sustaining and are protected with catch and release fishing regulations.
The average trip length is 6-7 hours on 7 - 10km (5 - 7 miles) of the river.
Transportation from your accommodations in Banff is available, or meet in Canmore at the site of departure.
The Bow Valley is home to many varieties of wildlife, and floating down this beautiful river presents many photographic opportunities.
