I can highly recommend Banff Fishing Unlimited, we all thoroughly enjoyed our morning spent with Jim our fishing guide. We caught 4 Lake Trout on Lake Minnewanka, much to the enjoyment of our 9 year old son. Jim was very knowledgeable and a great guy to chat to about the area and experiences. We even had two bald eagles keeping... More

The guide Scotty was the best part. Very knowledgeable about the lake. In face other members of our group did a tour on... More

Great way to be able to see the scenery around Lake Minnewanka and catch fish at the same time. Even though we only got 1 fish and hooked another for the afternoon Scottie our guide sure put effort in to make it more fish successful. Scottie makes you feel comfortable and was ready to assist with whatever you need. Highlight... More

This is one of the most amazing adventures my family has ever experienced. From the time I first spoke to Anders to help arrange our fishing day for our family of 7, I knew we were in for a treat. Anders picked us up at the hotel and took us on a lovely drive through Canmore and on to Spray... More

Banff fishing was so much fun especially since Anders was really good at what he's doing. He cooked the yummiest fish sandwich and made everything fun even with his sore back.Great day with Anders who was really a wonderful guide, an adventure that's really worth it and unforgettable.

Highly recommended for a winter getaway. Even with windy blizzard conditions on the mountain our guide Anders was able to put us on some nice lake trout! You can also expect a great lunch meal cooked right in your heated fishing shack and a wealth of knowledge from the guide. For a stress free, everything provided ice fishing trip definitely... More

We had an excellent experience with Banff Fishing Unlimited on Lake Minnewanka. Anders was able to get us a boat for 6 (2 adults and 4 kids) with only 1 week notice. It was a great effort by him that compensated for late planning by us. We were on a well equipped boat with our guide, Jim. Jim convinced us... More

Anders thank you for a wonderful day on Lake Minnewanka. Your method of instruction was easy to follow and the jokes were corny but I still laugh when I think of them. I would suggest to families with children to go out with theses guys. Even if you have never fished it is a great way for the family to... More

Anders took us on a beautiful ride through a rain storm and around Lake Minnewanka. His boat has a roof and plastic covers so we stayed dry. We did not catch any fish but caught a stranded Kayaker, and towed her in. I am giving Anders an excellent rating because he did everything he could to make our trip enjoyable... More

Looked like it might be a bad day for fishing when we showed up. Scotty assured us he had a perfect record on the water. He was right. He was very patient with us and joined in with my 15 and 17 year old boys humor. Poor guy..might be an afternoon he won't forget. So, well prepared and patient. Had... More
