|THE BOW RIVER flows from Bow Lake in Banff National Park through the beautiful Canadian Rockies, before cutting through the city of Calgary on its journey toward the Canadian Prairies. The Bow offers a myriad of scenes and fishing opportunities as it changes character on its journey from a freestone river in the wilds of Banff National Park to a somewhat tamer tailwater upon passing through Calgary. |
THE BOW RIVER CHAPTER has more than 1500 members and volunteers, and actively pursues the Trout Unlimited Canada mission “to preserve and protect Canada’s freshwater ecosystems” on the legendary Bow River.
The Chapter focuses on the Bow River from the Bearspaw Dam, which is just upstream of Calgary, to the confluence with the Oldman River. The Chapter also closely monitors activities on the Bow’s two major spawning tributaries, the Sheep and Highwood rivers. The Bow Headwaters Chapter, based in Banff, AB monitors activities on the upper stretches of the Bow.
