Banff Fishing Unlimited
Imagine….the calm and awe inspiring surroundings of the Canadian Rocky Mountains…the quiet but eager anticipation of line in water….then…BANG. The fight is on! The tug of your rod and finally a flash of movement 6 feet below you in the water, the fish darting to and fro. A soaring Bald Eagle eyes’ the action, hoping for an easy meal. On the distant shoreline, unawares…a bear snuffles the scrub. Meanwhile, the next few moments for you decides the outcome.
Banff Fishing Unlimited has been creating such memories for anglers of all ages on the lakes and rivers around Banff and Canmore for over 30 years.
Our guides know what species are where, when and what they are feeding on. We provide all the gear and boats necessary, whether in foul weather or fair.
Based in Canmore Alberta, we operate year round; summertime cruising the waters of Lake Minnewanka near the town site of Banff, primarily a Lake Trout fishery. Stalking the wily Brown Trout which habitat the riffles, pools and bank overhangs of the Bow River during fall months. And through the winter months, we operate a warm and comfy ice fishing hut on Spray Lakes, high in the mountain ranges in Kananaskis Country above the Town of Canmore.
So join us. One thing we can guarantee is a memory you’ll not forget. For landing in a successful catch, well, if that happened every time, they’d call the sport “catching”….not “fishing”.

Boasting over 30 years of guiding in the Rockies, Banff Fishing Unlimited takes you to angler's heaven! Lake Fishing, river fishing, float & wade, walk & wade and ice fishing in spectacular vistas in the Bow Valley near Banff and Canmore.
For more than 100 centuries, people hunted and camped along the original shores of Lake Minnewanka. The Stoney people called it “Minn-waki” or “Lake of the Spirits”. They respected and feared this lake for its resident spirits. The Early Europeans called it Devil's Lake.

The frozen lake seems to stretch out forever before your eyes. And the surrounding Rocky Mountains stand tall and silent covered in their white winter finery. This is truly an awe inspiring place to spend a day.
