Fishing with Iron Bow Fly Shop

The Bow River, in Southern Alberta, is to fly fishers who love trout, what the Kenai River in Alaska is to those who love Salmon. Here, you via for big Rainbow Trout and Fat Brown Trout all of which are in their prime run from April into the later days of October. The best month is June and sometimes the weeks before and after June are also amazing. To be clear, the fishing is grand here anytime from April-October but the insanity starts in late May and peaks during the month of June and sometimes spills over into July.

These are fly fishes and as such, they dip the dry, nymph, and streamers of Caddis, Stonefly, as well as bigger land mimics such as grasshoppers. While all of this is technical, the Iron Bow Fly Shop welcomes beginner fishers to the sport of fly fishing and their guides are amazing at introducing the art of fly fishing so that even someone who has never fished will battle trout.

Guided trips are 1-2 anglers and you can bring your own gear or they offer an "All in" package for about $100 more which includes all the flies, rods, and gear.

Their walk-in and Wade Trips are outside of Calgary and a short ride takes you to blue ribbon water where you can fish for Trout along fabled names such as the Oldman River and its tributaries. These trips, like the Floats, are 1-2 anglers and a master-level guide.
