Lake Minnewanka offers the premier fishing experience in Banff National Park.

Spend a few hours, or even a whole day, on the turquoise waters of Lake Minnewanka with an experienced fishing guide, learning the lines, or trying to catch the big one. Private fishing trips are available, include refreshments, and all boats are fully equipped with everything you’ll need; rods, reels, tackle and modern fish tracking equipment to help reel in that big one.

All of our guided fishing trips are only bookable at the Lake Minnewanka boathouse or by phoning 1.866.474.4766. Reservations and a deposit may be required.
