    Default Strange Province

    Working in Edson at the moment and just itching to go fishing but all I have is waders and the rivers are quite blown out at the moment. Excited to catch some of these Alberta fish. Rivers are awfully murky for this BC boy used to mountain streams but we will have to give er a shot.

    If you have a weekend off, drive east across Alberta to Cold Lake. Drive another hour across the border into Sask. Some of the best fishing in the country is in Meadow Lake Provincial Park Sask. So many lakes to chose from. Great Walleye and Pike. I'm telling you, you will not want to leave. I worked in the oil sands near Cold Lake a few years ago and I spent my week off up there.

    You're in Edson eh? Drive an hour or so north east toward fox creek and get in to greyling. Let me know if you need some spots as i live near by.

    By the way this is my first post, hey everybody!

    Edson is a little to far north for my liking, but if you take the Forestry Trunk road and drive south you will find lots of crystal clear streams with marvellous fishing. I won't name any of the streams simply because in my opinion exploring is half the fun, but I will tell you that you can find fish in the upper teens and some in the twenty plus inch category. It just takes a little time and effort to find these places. One of my favourite places is approximately 4 1/2 hour drive and 1/2 and hour ride on my mountain bike from my house in Calgary to some of the best cutthroat trout fishing you will find anywhere.

    Thanks Gary and NoSlack. If I enough time to go explore the foothills of the rockies I definitely will! I have done some work up between Edson and Fox Creek near the Silver Summit ski hill unfortunately didn't see much for water. My eyes are always open though with my rod in my truck.
    Professori, that youtube page looks like it has a bunch of awesome videos, unfortunately my mobile internet doesnt handle videos well, so it will have to wait, thanks.

    Do you have a float tube for hike ins? There are some very good lakes north of edson in swan hills for rainbows and brookies. Also down pembina river road is muskiki lake for cutthroat. Which is nice, nothing huge, but lots of 14-18" fish. Also a few lakes just off the Forestry trunk road that require a 15 minute hike in with some HUGE rainbows. PM me if you want more info.
