Let the Orvis-endorsed fly-fishing guides at Dave Brown Outfitters create your unforgettable angling adventure in Alberta, Canada. In 1988, Dave Brown began his Calgary Alberta Bow River fly-fishing career. Since then, Dave and his guides spend countless days guiding and fishing on this incredible river, ensuring that the clients of Dave Brown Outfitters experience the best the Bow has to offer. With our professional approach to guiding, coupled with our knowledge of the river and ability to instruct at all levels, your day fly-fishing the Bow River will be a memorable one.
Southern Alberta's Bow River is world renowned for its hard-fighting brown and rainbow trout. The Bow River is truly a trophy fishery, with both browns and rainbows averaging 19 inches. Our guided Bow River fly-fishing trips take place in and downstream of the city of Calgary, making the Bow River very accessible from most major U.S. cities and airports.
For anglers who want to venture out into Southern Alberta, walk and wades and floating other rivers are also an option.
For anglers looking for a quick trout fix, look no further! Most U.S. carriers fly into Calgary, and there are direct flights from Dallas, Denver, Houston, Chicago, Minneapolis, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Calgary is also accessible from Detroit via WestJet Airlines out of Windsor, Ontario.
The Dave Brown Outfitters' team of hardworking, experienced guides ensures that your trip with us is a success.
