Grab a rod, amble an urban seawall or perch on a riverside rock and cast your line in bubbling white-water that drowns out the drone of traffic. No need to head into the wilderness - from coast to coast to coast Canada’s watery web of streams, lakes and seashores make it possible to indulge in fishing with skyscrapers as well as mountains for a backdrop. Take a break from shopping to smell the salt air angling for salmon. Wrap up that museum visit to feel the current around your hip waders as you daydream of rainbow trout. Introduce your kids to the fun of a fishing hole in a city park. Watch a prairie sunset and city lights reflect in a stream as you prowl for pike and walleye. It’s easy, nearby, and once you land that nibble it’s the ultimate locavore experience. Bond with your guides, hear their fishing tales and feel their passion about preserving our waters. Learn how limits and licences, catch-and-release and kind fishing practices keep Canada’s sport fishing stocks healthy and diverse. Then finish up at the spa or a night out on the town savouring freshly-caught seafood at everything from informal shore lunches to gourmet seafood restaurants along a twinkling skyline.
