Welcome to guided ice fishing trips in the Canadian Rocky Mountains near Banff Alberta Canada.

Big Jim, Banff's resident fly fishing guide, welcomes you to our ice fishing lodge built right out in the middle of Spray Lakes Reservoir. Our fun client friendly ice fishing adventures include top-notch rods, bait, jigs, lures, ice augers, scoops, heated ice fishing shelters, hot lunch, soft drinks, transportation and knowledgeable guide. We have extra jackets, snow pants, hats, gloves, and Kamvik ice fishing boots available so that your ice fishing trip is a warm, luxuriant and entertaining experience.

The company's comfortable ice fishing lodge has a big warm heater, eight foot cushioned sofa, as well as a Coleman stove for preparing hot chocolate, grilled cheese sandwiches, and your freshly caught and sizzled trout. We have the main lodge, two one man shelters, hunting chairs, and the Fatfish 9000 heated ice fishing tent for your use. We are angling for fat feisty lake trout jigging lures at a depth of around 100 feet or so. Most of the fish are in the one to four pound range with the chance to hook into a rogue 10lb+ monster. On the nicer days we drill some holes outside in the sunshine and enjoy the beautiful weather. Forty-five minutes from Banff and a 15 minute walk through the forest a truly Canadian mountain wilderness experience awaits!!

We can accommodate groups of up to six and with a little notice larger groups are possible. Not too early a start time, around 9am, returning back to your lodging in time for supper. (or earlier) It's best to dress as warm as if going skiing or tobogganing for the day. Families welcome. Not included is the one day non-resident Alberta Provincial Sportfishing license and WIN number ($36.36/person) available on-line at . If you are 15 years old or younger no license is required. Let's go ice fishing!!

Year round we offer guided fly fishing and spin fishing trips along the Bow River. (weather permitting)
