Banff ice fishing and fly fishing guide, Big Jim, Banff's resident fishing guide, welcomes you to guided ice fishing trips at our heated fishing lodge up on Spray Lake near Banff Alberta. Ice fishing is a true Canadian wilderness experience.
Let's go ice fishing!! The drive itself is quite spectacular up into the mountains of the Spray Valley and about half way there we stop at the JK Bakery for fresh pastry and some coffee. Upon arrival we embark on a short 15 minute stroll through the pine forest out onto Spray Lake Reservoir to the secret location of my heated ice fishing lodge. Then we're fishing and at lunch I put on my Chef's hat and prepare your trout ala minute. MMM just caught fresh fillets of trout either fried up in garlic butter with a little bit of onion or into the sizzling hot olive oil with a bit of fish crisp coating with lemon and tartar on the side. Yum! I've been known to make awesome grill cheese sandwiches too!
Our client friendly fishing trips include all the ice fishing gear: Kamvik ice fishing boots, rods, lures and jigs, ice auger and scoop, bait, extra outer layers, hats and gloves (if needed), lunch, transportation and entertaining guide. The company can accommodate one to four anglers per trip. All guided fishing trips are private. Your own sunglasses are handy but we have spares if needed.
Phone Big Jim at 1 403 678-7980 cell or 1 403 760-2446 office to book your fun fishing trip or drop us a line via email at BigJim@BanffFlyFishingGuides.com . Rates for summer and winter fishing are the same. Thank You.
Year round we offer Bow River fishing excursions featuring G. Loomis fly and spin and the whole rest of the kit for your use. (Weather permitting)
Let's go fishing!
Jim Dykstra Owner/Guide.
