We had Phil as our guide for the day. He was personable and had a great sense of humor. He really seemed to enjoy his career as a fishing guide. We caught enough fish for lunch and some to enjoy for dinner. It was easy to make our reservation. Phil picked us up at our hotel and was prompt. The... More

I wanted to book this ice fishing trip for my husband, since he loves fishing but has never had the opportunity to go ice fishing. Right from the start, this company was very helpful in answering and questions I may have had. Our guide, Phil, was wonderful! He picked us up at our hotel in Banff, and drove us to... More

The Banff fishing unlimited tour was truly an exciting experience. This fishing tour took us all the way up an icy mountain to a frozen lake. Our tour guides, Mr. Anders and Mr.Phill, set up the tent so that we could fish in the warm tent rather than fish in the cold.They also taught us some great techniques to use... More

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

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
