- C$399 for a full-day, all-inclusive fishing trip for two (C$485 value)
The full-day trip begins with a shuttle ride from Calgary to Graves Landing, where fishermen receive a safety and orientation briefing. Then they head out on the Bow River, known for its bountiful supply of large trout. For the first 100 meters of back channel after launching, they navigate their drift boat with poles, before switching to Grey Owl paddles, and travel along 22 kilometers to the Policeman’s Flats.
Foot & Chain Fly Fishing Exchange
With help from the Foot & Chain Fly Fishing Exchange, even first-time waterfarers can catch fish, as the Bow River holds about 2,500 trout per mile. And the guides who captain the vessels aren't present just to pull up the anchor and scare off overly aggressive starfish. Instead, they're also there to fly-fish alongside passengers and enjoy the day as much as their guests do. This way of operating lets passengers see expert fly-fishing techniques up close, affording a level guidance that practicing in the bathtub doesn't approach.
