The Poaching page has pertinent and important information on what to look for, how to handle a situation when people are believed to be poaching and do's and don'ts in such a situation. Following these guidelines will result in a favorable outcome - that being our goal to protect the resource. With a successful prosecution of the offenders, there is even a reward available to the "good Samaritan". The fishing for trout pages put you in the world of the trout and will greatly increase your chances of finding trout, presenting your fly, hooking and landing good numbers of trout.
Calgary is well known for the Bow River and it's trout fishery but it also has many other major attractions such as the Calgary Stampede, the Calgary Zoo, its close proximity to the Rocky Mountains, Canada Olympic Park, world quality shopping opportunities and the Bad Lands of Drumheller - just to name a few. Even if you don't fish, you can have a great time in Calgary!
