Clients fish from stable Mackenzie style drift boats that offer sturdy platforms. Most have rod storage systems, sealed watertight compartments, comfortable swivel chairs and casting decks with leg braces. The expert guides will also make frequent stops for wading in the more productive runs. Customized to light and weather conditions as well as the vacationers' time and schedule, excursions can last from a half day to multi-day. Launching from several sites, tours include snacks, deli lunch, beverages and possibly even a barbeque beside the cool, crystal water.
Guests can choose from a wide array of accommodation. Perfect for the quiet types, mountain lodges, rustic riverside cabins or working ranch holidays are available, while campgrounds and RV parks are also popular. Alternatively, Calgary offers big city amenities like upscale hotels, exciting nightlife and world class dining and shopping
What To Bring
Mountain temperatures can change dramatically within hours, so layered clothing along with a windbreaker and rain gear will prepare guests for most summer conditions. A hat, sunscreen and polarized glasses should also be included. Wading boots are recommended as well as a 4 or 5 weight rod with floating line, a 6 or 7 weight rod with a sink tip line, and 9' 2x to 6x leaders and tippet.
Fly into Calgary International Airport or drive from any point in North America to a hotel or camp in the area. Rental cars are available for the short drive to one of several possible launch sites.
