Kananaskis Country is located south of Canmore, Alberta just inside the western edge of the Canadian Rockies. Within this area are several provincial parks including the Peter Lougheed Provincial Park
The Upper Kananaskis Lake [photo 1] is primarily a Rainbow Trout fishery, which can be fished from shore either at the boat launch bay, or at the Inter-Lakes outflow end where a float tube, Pontoon Boat or other watercraft is recommended. Watercraft is available for rental at several locations in the area.
The Lower Kananaskis Lake [above] is predominantly a Bull Trout fishery with spring time offering excellent opportunities too.
The Bull Trout will rise to flies such as large skating Caddis, particularly at Sundown, however the majority of the sipping fish encountered on this lake will be Rainbows and Cutthroat Trout.
 Bow River in Canmore, Alberta.
There is world class trout fishing in the Bow River, mostly Bull Trout which are strictly catch and release. Some professional guides use flat bottom boats like the one in the photo.
