Tight lines, warm breezes, good friends, plenty of flies, life doesn’t get any better! We know where the fish are and the world famous Hawg-slayer, Big Jim Dykstra is happy to guide you! What are you waiting for? Let’s go walk and wade the Bow River and catch some fat, feisty, big trout!
When planning an adventure in the mountains expect a three season day. The mornings start out nice and cool with fresh clean crisp pure air. By afternoon it warms up to a lovely temperature cooling again by evening. It is best to dress in layers wearing any kind of comfortable long pants, thick warm socks, T-shirt, long sleeve shirt and a light jacket. A hat with a brim and sunglasses are handy too. On the colder days the company has extra rain jackets and warm Remington bomber jackets in all sizes for your comfort.
Big Brown trout, cutties, brookies, rainbows, whities, bulls and the odd rogue Makinaw trout are the species found in the Bow river and we’d only be too happy to guide you, your family and friends on a fun-filled fishing adventure while you are in the Banff area. Guided trips are client friendly and would include all the gear; breathable waders and sturdy wading boots, G. Loomis rods and reels, all the tackle, lures and flies, soft drinks and snacks, spare rain & Remington bomber jackets, transportation and a wise guide.
Big Jim has been guiding on the Bow River year round since 1995.
