Family Fishing Weekends Alberta

Alberta Waterbodies


Events Description

Family fishing weekends are offered twice a year in Alberta – during the Family Day weekend and during National Fishing Week in the summer.

During Alberta’s twice-yearly Family Fishing Weekends, no fishing is licence required. Albertans and visitors are invited to give fishing a try on waterbodies with open fishing seasons (not in national parks). Keep in mind that fishing regulations still apply.

Alberta has approximately 300 stocked waterbodies for anglers to enjoy. They are stocked annually with rainbow trout, brook trout, brown trout, cutthroat trout or tiger trout.

Stocked waters are listed in the Alberta Guide to Sportfishing Regulations. Find a stocked lake near you and enjoy catching a memory on your family fishing experience.
