RiverPeople Guides is a small, family-owned business that runs guided fishing trips in Calgary, Alberta. With Captain Osman Hamzic as your guide, you can look forward to a memorable time in places that include the Glacial Lakes in Banff National Park as well as the upper and lower Bow River, truly sights to behold.
You will find available packages for both regular boat trips, as well as wading trips if you’re more interested in going on foot. Osman has a custom-built 16’ mahogany drift boat with enough room for two prospective anglers to hop on.
While Bow River is certainly beautiful, as you can see from the photos, nothing compares to actually seeing the landscape in person. The upper Bow River is an especially scenic part filled with wildlife and breathtaking vistas.
The lower Bow River, on the other hand, is the place to go if you’re looking to catch some world-class Trout. Captain Osman is a passionate fly fisherman and will be happy to exchange tips and tricks with all his guests.
The price of any given trip includes rods, reels, and terminal tackle. You will need to bring a standard province license, as well as a pair of polarized sunglasses and a hat. If you prefer using your own gear, feel free to bring your own fly fishing gear or spin casters and artificials (a strict ‘no live bait’ policy is in force).
You will be served a delicious hot lunch on the riverbank on full day trips and, if requested, on jet boat trips.
