Fishing Reports

Our Calgary fishing reports are brought to you straight from our office, the rivers and streams of Central and Southern Alberta, to give you the latest information regarding hatches, patterns, and tactics. Each report will touch on the main rivers and streams in Alberta that we call our home waters. These include but are not exclusive to the Bow River, Highwood River, Oldman River, Crowsnest River and the Red Deer River Drainage. We pride ourselves in providing you with trusted local insights across all of our fishing reports!   As always, email or call the shop for current information at 403 282-8868.
