The peace, the fresh air, and, ah, the fish! The Bragg Creek area is a perfect place to fish with peaceful, pristine rivers flowing down from the rockies. But before you cast your rod there are a few things to know...
Before you go fishing you need a licence. Exactly who needs a licence and other details like how many fish you can catch are all covered in the Alberta Guide to Sportfishing Regulations, which can be viewed here.
Then actually getting your licence is a two-part process in Alberta.
First you will need a Wildlife Identification Number (WIN) which you can apply for online here. This is the Alberta government website for the sale of recreational hunting and fishing licences. A WIN currently costs $8 and is valid for 5 years. As soon as you’ve applied online, you may purchase a fishing licence.
Second, you can now buy your fishing licence online on the same site, or take your WIN to Bragg Creek Trading Post at 117 White Ave to get one. Fishing supplies are available from the Moose Mountain General Store.
More info will follow soon about where to fish and what you can typically catch.
