Fly Fishing on the Bow River

A typical float will have you on the water from 6 to 12 hours, depending on what you are up for.

Meeting Place will be pre-arranged prior to the float. I will get you to and from the river.

A scenic tour through a lower section of the Bow River between Calgary and Carseland.

On and Off times geared towards your schedule and the season.

We will fish from the boat and the shore in some choice spots. You will have plenty of time to fish, explore and relax.  Have a few laughs, catch a few fish and enjoy the day.

It is common to see Deer, Bald Eagles, Beaver, Pelicans (and the odd fish) on your trip. Come prepared to document the adventure.

“BOW RIVER DELIGHT”

Half Day Rate:  $495.00 CAD (plus GST)

Full Day Rate: $595.00 CAD (plus GST)

We understand that fishing may not be of interest to everyone. So this float trip is tailored to people who want an intimate, yet relaxing outdoor experience. A fun, low energy way to get up close and personal with the beauty and splendour of the Bow River; a fantastic way to do and see something different. City views, Prairie views, an abundance of feathered and furred wildlife, as well as endless blue skies and fresh air are some of the things you can expect to see while the soothing sound of the guides oars dip in and out of the gently flowing water.

Designed for couples, friends and families, our float trips are offered with your comfort and enjoyment as a top priority. Rather than sharing a wet raft with a dozen or so other people, you will enjoy your trip on the Bow River from a modern, comfortable and stable drift boat. Our boat(s) can seat 1-4 passengers comfortably; you will not have to share your experience with others. Perfect for couples, friends, family, corporate clients, or other small groups (multiple boats/guides available to suit your group size). Do you have an idea or request for an even more customized and personal Bow River float trip? Let us know what we can do to make your float a quintessential experience.
