Get ready to decompress as nothing slows life down better than fishing.

Gone Fishing!

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…

You need a licence to fish in Alberta

Exactly who needs a licence, how many fish you can catch, and other important details are all covered in the Alberta Guide to Sportfishing Regulations.

Getting your licence is
a two-part process.


  1. First you will need a Wildlife Identification Number (WIN). This currently costs $8 and is valid for 5 years.
  2. As soon as you have applied for your WIN, you can apply for a fishing licence.

Both of these can be applied for online through the same site.
