Well I'm going to Southern Alberta for my wifes family reunion, and I was wondering what kind of spearfishing there may be up in the freezing lakes of the Canadian Rockies. We will be staying in a lodge just outside of Waterton National Park (which is the other side of Glacier National park on the Montana side) in a small bump in the road called Mountain View. I know there are some lakes/reservoirs to h&l in and I found out that it is legal to spear in Alberta but certain species are out. Any help or experience would be welcomed.

Hey there, I live in alberta... What are you wondering?? Which lakes and whatnot?? Honestly I haven't had too great of luck in Alberta, I just go to Sask. for their fishing. Here you can spear Sauger, perch, burbot, lake whitefish, and goldeye. There are no size limits for these fish, but you also need to take into consideration you're weaponry... Only spears propelled by spring, elastic, compressed gas, or muscular power are permitted. No spearing in the lakes..." Gods, May, Seibert, Winefred, Andrew, Gardiner, and Namur lakes. Other than that, all is covered by your regular Ole' fishing license. You also must be swimming to spearfish. This was almost entirely copied out of the Alberta fishing regulations book. Obviously the success of a person out of water would be very limited, so even if it was legal, it would be ruled out. lol best of luck and Please tell me if you get anything and what lake. My mom lives in that half of the province, and I'd like to try some southern lakes too...
