Hanson's Fishing Outfitters
  • Approximate Cost:
    Half Day: $250 to $500 Per Person
    Full Day: $500 to $750 Per Person

Hanson's Fishing Outfitters offers many fine products that complement and enhance the world-class fishing in the Calgary Area. Guests of the outfitters can opt for fly-out Heli fishing trip, a float trip down the Bow River, or a Walk and Wade excursion on the Bow River. Anyone of these options can make a local fishing trip into the fishing adventure of a lifetime.

The Fishing

There is no secret that the Bow River is full of Trophy Rainbow Trout and Trophy Brown Trout. As much sought after as these fish are there are bigger fish in the area if size is what thrills you. Some of the deeper holes on some of the rivers above Calgary hold Bull Trout that are 35 plus inches in length.

There are many rivers, alpine lakes, and streams here that can rival the Bow for for fishing - not so much for the number of Trophy Trout in a mile of water, but in experience. You have access to big Rainbows, big Brown Trout, Bull Trout, Brook Trout, Cutthroat Trout, and even Arctic Grayling. if you are a fly fisher with a passion for Trout, this is one of the best areas in the world to toss flies.

It is also one of the reasons why services such as Heli Fishing are important. You can quickly access some of the most remote fishing spots and enjoy a day of fishing where the fish are still wild. With a little more time and effort a walk and wade trip can do something similar. If what you want is a day of battling big Trophy Trout, then a float trip down the Bow River is probably perfect.

What You Should Expect

Expect professionals who have built a sustainable business around fishing. Expect knowledgeable guides who understand how to fish and how to teach you to fish. Expect people who fish the same waters that you will fish and who understand how those waters have changed from last year to this year. It is the deeper knowledge that helps make fishing her so successful.
