Albertans and visitors are invited to give fishing a try on waterbodies with open fishing seasons (not in national parks).
Alberta has approximately 300 stocked waterbodies for anglers to enjoy. They are stocked annually with rainbow trout, brook trout, brown trout, cutthroat trout or tiger trout.
Aim to be a Responsible Angler
- Know the regulations for the limit and species for each waterbody and season
- Know how to identify fish to better follow the regulations
- Handle fish with care to help them survive after they have been released back into the water
- When you are catching and releasing fish, you can use barbless hooks that are easier to remove
