Immerse yourself in the world of fish and discover what’s beneath the ice in Alberta’s waters this winter at the 11th annual Fishtival! Join us at Bow Habitat Station for interactive indoor and outdoor activities and games that explore all things fish!
Meet the aquatic invasive species K-9 detection team, feed over 30,000 rainbow trout, and much more! Purchase your timed-entry tickets in advance to guarantee you don’t miss out on the event of the year.
Meet Alberta's aquatic invasive species K-9 detection team and see them in action as they sniff out threats to our province’s waterbodies and ecosystems. Then put you own skills to the test as you hunt for hidden invasive mussels.
Fishing doesn't have to be a fair-weather sport. You can fish year-round in Alberta. Check out the equipment you need to head out ice fishing this winter and learn the basics of ice safety. Explore an ice-fishing tent and put your fish identification skills to the test through a magnetic fishing game.
Watch for flying lures! Put your casting skills to the test as you learn a side-arm cast.
Piece together a fish puzzle to learn the anatomy of a trout then try your hand at the spin-to-win trivia wheel all about Alberta’s native trout.
Meet the hard working fish technicians of the Sam Livingston Fish Hatchery to learn how they raise over 1 million fish annually and the important role the facility plays in sport fishing by stocking over 200 lakes and ponds across Alberta.
Watch the steady hands of the local Hook N’ Hackle group as they tie fishing flies right before your eyes.
