Active Adventure

The Bow River fishery is so renowned not just for the sheer numbers of
trout she holds, an estimated 2500 trout per mile, but for the large size
of the fish she produces and that can be regularly caught. Imagine. The 100 meters of back channel from the launch out to the river main is poled after which the pole is switched out for a Grey Owl paddle in the slack water before the confluence. From this point forward the trip is unique, made so by the ever changing river and its inhabitants. 17 kilo-meters as the crow flies yet over 22 kilometers along the river's path, our take point will be at Policeman's Flats, a wilderness day beginning within the city and ending just outside the limits.

We begin the day with a safety and orientation meeting on site at Graves
Landing once the boat and equipment are rigged. Calgary shuttle is included.

Typical Day

Sample Itinerary.Hi Aaron.
I was on the river yesterday and it was fishing well. Looking forward to our run this Friday! Attached a couple of pics of the boats we use.

For 1 person we generally run the canoe. You can occupy either the centre padded seat, the forward raised paddling seat or switch between them on a landing.

For 2 persons we use a drift boat.

There are advantages to either system.
The canoe is stealth quiet and highly maneuverable. The ride itself close on the water is very relaxing.
The drift boat has pedestal seats, casting platforms, is super stable and comfortable.

The weather can change quickly on the river.
Please bring:
Fishing License
Rain gear
warm clothing (layers are best)
sunglasses (polarized if possible)

We will have some rain gear and extra clothing on board as well.
Lunch, soft drinks and snacks are provided.
Deli submarine sandwiches and usually a salad for lunch or whenever you wish to eat. Please let me know any food allergies or preferences.

Calgary home/hotel shuttle at 8:30 AM is included. You wanted to meet at the launch?
A safety and orientation meeting is held on site at the launch.
Return at about 5-6 PM.

I'll have a quality digital camera along and will be creating a photo log
for you as well.

The canoe ride is memorable in itself.

Have a great day!

Stephen Stewart


Thanks again very much Stephen.

It was a great day for sure. One I won't soon forget. Lots to learn.

Comparing my trip last month on a big fishing boat in Minnewanka to yesterday I can really get a sense of how much work goes into providing a quality Bow river experience. You worked your tail off getting me across the river and back dozens of times and only got to fish the one time. I promise the next time we head out I will set aside a few more hours and we will get some fish on your line too.

The pictures look great and I have one or two I have to get to you too!
