Our guided trips are designed for those anglers wanting to fly-fish lakes, ponds and reservoirs. We specialize in introductory stillwater fly fishing clinics by teaching you what is needed to become successful in the art, science, sport and passion that is fly fishing.
Fly-fishing stillwaters are both fun and relaxing. Edmonton's local trout lakes offer anglers close-to-home convenience and exceptional opportunities when rivers are off-color or high due to spring runoff or foul weather. Our mission is to introduce new fly-anglers, fly-fishermen from out of town or new to the Edmonton area, to the numerous opportunities available to them at an affordable price. Through our clinics, we want to give every new fly fisher, the skills, tools and knowledge to be successful on their very next fly-fishing adventure. New float tube or pontoon boat owners or someone wishing to try fly-fishing before making an inflatable boat or fly rod purchase are also more than welcome to book one of our services. Our intentions are not to wine and dine you, but to help you master the mechanics of casting, understand where fish are feeding, what flies to use and the techniques and tactics needed to be successful. But more importantly; to show you a good time.
Fly-fishing our local trout lakes can offer up huge trout and anglers booking a trip can expect good insect activity all day, usually resulting in a great time on the water. Our local lakes are some of the most fertile lakes in Canada. The muddy bottoms of our lakes make superb habitat for most stillwater aquatic life like chironomids, scuds and leeches.
Currently, we offer trips & clinics to several local trout lakes only 30-45 minutes from Edmonton. But we also offer several other fly-fishing opportunities not listed on our Rates & Services page including:
- Stillwater fly-fishing for trophy size northern pike, day and overnight trips to some of Alberta's most productive stillwater fisheries for big trout, day and over night trips to the blue ribbon Little Smokey River for arctic graying with a chance at a bull trout and rocky mountain whitefish and evening trips on Edmonton's North Saskatchewan River fly fishing for Goldeye & Mooneye.
Alberta Stillwater Adventures is a unique venture for Mike Monteith. Mike had owned Santannas Night Club for over 15 years but his true passion has always been fly fishing stillwaters.
