  Cutthroat Trout
by madamx

Fishing is excellent in Kananaskis. Most of the lakes are stocked, and the types of fish available are: trout, char, arctic grayling, and whitefish. Fishing licenses can be purchased at Fortress Junction in Kananaskis, and in Calgary. With your license you should receive fishing regulations -- they will specify when you can fish, what size you can keep , and how manyfor all the fishing areas in Kananaskis.

The Bull Trout is an endangered species in Alberta, and it is the only fish you cannot keep. They can be distinguished by having no black markings on their bodies, hence the conservation slogan "No Black, Put it Back". If you are caught with a bull trout, you can be fined hundreds of dollars. Many people practice catch-and-release.

Equipment: Besides having the obvious equipment, make sure you have your fishing license on you at all times, as if you are found without one by a ranger, you will be fined.
