Banff National Park - Help
Hi Everyone,

I'm new to the board and new to fly fishing, I have done the Spinning Rod, Bobber Fly Fishing, but have inherited a Fly Road.

Any advice on where I can go in Banff National Park with some chance of getting a bite on the fly would be greatly appreciated. Also any types of fly suggestions would be more than welcome.

I do not want to do a guided trip, as I find doing it on my on time frame is much nicer.

Did you ever get a reply to your post? We're heading up to Banff in August and hope to doing some flyfishing too. I understand that the Bow River above Banff is one stretch to try.

Hi, Tried the Bow near the golf course at Bannf some years ago. Caught small cutt throaters which were briiliant sport.

The joke at the time was," we ain't seen a Black Bear here in years". We saw one on the golf course. No one believed us, but luckily one of the boys took a pic, to prove it.

Best regards

The Bow also runs right along the highway just before you reach Lake Louise, which is just west of Banff. There is some real good fishing there but just a reminder if you are going to be fishing inside the National Park you need a special licence, which you can get in Banff.
