Calgary and the Bow River

Fly Fishing Trip and Lodge Details:

Fish the Bow River while using the Shangarry Bed & Breakfast as you home away from home.

The Fishing:

The Bow offers a myriad of opportunities as it changes character on its journey from a freestone river in the wilds of Banff National Park to a somewhat tamer tail water upon passing through Calgary. The lower Bow River then provides 55 kilometers of nutrient rich water below the city of Calgary which is renowned for the size and abundance of catchable-sized fish; home to monster browns, turbo-powered rainbows, and an incredible summer caddis hatch.

Season information:

All year


Shangarry Bed & Breakfast rooms, C$95-C$140. Bow River float, C$550 plus GST. Rates effective until September 30, 2013.

Please contact us for additional fishing and guiding information.

Services at Travel Adventures are completely free!
When you book a fly fishing vacation with Travel Adventures,
you never pay more than if you booked directly with the lodge or outfitter.

Accommodations and capacity:

Three rooms (6 guests) in a beautiful home in south east Calgary that backs up to a golf course. Josephine, originally from Dublin, shares her love for life and cooking with her guests. Ask her to whip up one of her famous Shangarry pancakes. Or enjoy crepes, fresh fruit salad, home made granola, eggs benedict with Canadian bacon or smoked salmon, juice and coffee, or of course tea. Breakfasts are to die for!
