Fishing in Alberta

10 Fantastic Fishing Holes in AB!

Alberta anglers looking for a great place to cast off, you're in luck. From Calgary to Edmonton to Medicine Hat, Alberta is home to some of the best fishing in Canada.

Here are 10 excellent fishing holes in Alberta:


1. Battle River

Located near Camrose, Battle River is a prairie-fed watershed featuring ample amounts of angling opportunities – cast out for walleye, northern pike, burbot, and goldeye with dense, towering aspen as your backdrop.

2. Birch Creek

Found just a short drive west of Lloydminster and north of Wainwright, Birch Creek is great for fly-fishing, spinning, or bait casting.

3. Blindman River

Fishing at Blindman River near Red Deer is notoriously rewarding for anglers of any skill level. Experienced fishermen can cast into deep pools or at the mouth of Red Deer River, while novices can try their luck in the shallow, slow moving currents of Blindman River.

Just minutes away from High Level in northern Alberta’s luscious wetlands, Hay-Zama Lakes Wildpark gives outdoor adventurers plenty of opportunities for landing walleye and northern pike.

5. Wood Buffalo National Park

Fishing at Wood Buffalo National Park is generally at its best in the large rivers, where grayling, whitefish, and northern pike are more are abundant during fishing season.

6. Banff National Park

Housing over 6,000 kilometers of southern Alberta scenery, Banff National Park is great place for anglers to cast out. Make your way through the coniferous forest and enjoy reeling in lake trout, jumbo Rockies, and more at Lake Minnewanka.

7. Badger Resevoir

Just northwest of Medicine Hat, Badger Reservoir features a host of whitefish, walleye, yellow perch, and, most notably, species of pike weighing up to 30 pounds.

Speaking of big fish, Waterton Lakes National Park once spit out a lake trout weighing in at over 51 pounds. Find yours at this 505 square kilometer scenic wonderland, just minutes southwest of Lethbridge.

9. Brazeau Reservoir

The northern pike are biting early and often at Brazeau Reservoir near Rocky Mountain House. You can cast off from the shores of the reservoir or take the boat out and explore the winding canals that feed the reservoir.

10. South Saskatchewan River

Flowing right through the city of Medicine Hat, South Saskatchewan River provides excellent opportunities for outdoors people looking to cast out and land big catches without leaving the city limits.
