Us southerners who rarely see temperatures below 40s (and that's a very cold day for us and rare) wanted to unique winter wonderland trip for our spring break. No beach for us this year! This was at the top of our list to try. My boys are deep sea fishing experts and I knew they would enjoy trying their hand... More

Had a great time fly-fishing with our guide Dale (request him if you can). He was very patient and helpful to my Wife and I who had only tried it once before. His expertise combined with the beautiful scenery made for a great day. Didn't catch any lunkers but had fun with the small ones. We did the half day... More

Wapiti sports, Thank you for an epically disappointing end to our trip in Canada. We had a float trip booked a month ago for two boats. This morning when we arrived at your shop we were informed you only had one guide and could only take two of our party. Aside from being totally unapologetic, the employee that met us... More

We stopped in to ask about floating the Bow River to fish on our own raft and immediately the man working started to say how he would never recommend us doing the float alone and how dangerous it could be.

We would like to thank you for letting us know about your experience at our store and are sorry to hear you did not receive the responses you were looking for.

We opted for the "Bow River Float and Wade" day trip on 1 September 2015. Dale was our guide, and it was just my partner and I. I should note at this point that this area of the river is strictly "catch and release," so if you are wanting to catch your dinner, you might want to look at other... More

Great day spin cast fishing with my 2 sons. We came from out of town, but no issues - all of the equipment, including waders, boots, poles, lures and licenses were provided.

We utilized Wapiti Sports for a fishing float trip on the Bow River. Our guide Dale was very friendly, knowledgeable, and patient. Our trip departed near Canmore, and Dale guided us down the river in what turned out to be a full day of enjoyable fly fishing. The scenery was unbeatable as well. Thanks Dale.

Always friendly staff and great job sharpening the skates You typically need to drop them off and pick them up later rather than wait for them to be done
