PLAN YOUR TRIP

Once you arrive in Calgary, AB, you have many options for accommodations, but we recommend you stay in Okotoks, AB, where Joe Buck Fly Fishing headquarters is located!

 

Okotoks ("Oak-o-tokes") is a small town just 15 minutes south of Calgary. It has all of the amenities of a big city, but with the quaintness and convenience of a Southern-Alberta small town. Nestled in the Foothills, Okotoks offers easy access to the Bow River and other incredible streams.

 

WHEN'S THE BEST TIME
TO FISH THE BOW?

Spring, summer, and early fall offer unique fishing opportunities. So long as the ice is out, the fishing is on!

 

In Alberta, spring is usually mid-April to late-May. Nymphing and streamers can be excellent, as well as the potential of the some dry fly fishing. On the right day, Blue-Wing Olives and Mother’s Day Caddis are a possibility.

 

June to July is typically run-off season, depending on the winter’s snow pack—stoneflies, caddis, PMD’s hatch mean the fishing can be downright amazing. By late August, the long summer days shorten, Hopper fishing is in full swing, and Rainbow Trout are ripping fly line off your reel.

 

September transcends into the fall when the nights cool and the fishing is great.

WHAT TO BRING

RODS & REELS

Included on all trips, but if you prefer yours we recommend a 9 foot 6 wt. This is perfect for almost everything, but if you have a combination of two rods to fish with; like a 4 wt for mountain streams, 5 wt for the Crowsnest. A 6wt for the Bow and windy days and 7wt for casting streamers is even better. This is a broad subject that depends on the angler’s preferences and the type of water fished. Please contact us if you have specific questions.

WADING BOOTS

Felt soles are still allowed in Alberta, but we would like them sterilized (bleach and hot water works well). Studded boots are not allowed in drift boat or rafts as they damage the boats. Please remove all studs prior to your float fishing days.

WADERS

Breathable waders are the only way to go. If you prefer not to travel with your own we have a few extra pairs that we can rent to you.

WATER SHOES OR SANDALS

For wet wading on warmer days

LONG UNDERWEAR OR FLEECE PANTS

For under your waders in cooler months

FISHING VEST, FANNY PACK, OR NET

all optional

LAYERS OF CLOTHING AND WARM SOCKS

For both hot and cool weather

A WATERPROOF BAG

For personal items you bring in the boat.

SUNSCREEN

We recommend water resistant, for obvious reasons.

 

HAT

This not only provides better vision, but also protects you against hooks and fly lines.

SUNGLASSES

Quality polarized sunglasses are a must.

PHONE/CAMERA

For capturing the Big One!
