The Bow Habitat Station’s Kids Can Catch Trout Pond is open for the season from May 1 – September 30, 2022. This pond is stocked with rainbow trout raised in the fish hatchery for you to catch and release. Please note that bait is not allowed and barbless hooks are required.

Please note that anyone aged 16+ who is helping a child with casting/reeling must hold a valid Alberta Sportfishing license.

Tips for making a catch:
– Tie your lure with clean hands. Fish can smell things like sunscreen or bug spray!
– The best time to fish is early in the morning or late evening. As the weather heats up, they are more likely to hide in shady areas under the dock or around plants.
– Fish are less likely to be caught as time goes on. They have a decent memory and will remember over time that a hook is not a tasty treat!
