Alberta is a province known for its rugged outdoors settings that inspire some of the best RV adventures. From wild rivers to mellow lakes and springs, wherever you are in Alberta, there’s likely a world-class fishing destination nearby. Fire up your RV and cruise to these three unbeatable Alberta fishing spots this summer.
The Kakwa River
If you enjoy breathtaking scenery as much as you enjoy fishing, the Kakwa River north of Grande Cache is one of the best places to park your RV this summer. Massive trout, Rocky Mountain whitefish, arctic grayling and a variety of other fish species make the river a hotspot for reeling in multiple catches each day. Fly fishing is one of the best ways to snag heaps of fish in the Kakwa, so don’t be afraid to get your legs wet.
Fishermen who prefer to stay out of the water will love launching a boat into Pigeon Lake, just north of Red Deer. A provincial campground makes for the perfect place to set up camp, while the boat launch makes getting in and out of the water at all times of day a breeze. Reports of catching more walleye and pike than you can count are common at Pigeon Lake, so be sure to bring your grill and plenty of tasty summer sides.
When you grow tired of catching and eating countless walleye and pike, head to Alberta’s northern pothole lakes, including Figure Eight, Swan and Sulfur Lakes. These pothole trout lakes offer excellent spring and fall fishing, while the heat of summer slows down the catches slightly. You can catch nearly every trout species in these highly populated waters, so don’t be surprised if you pull in some rainbow, brown and brook trout.
