Angling Guide Licence

Are you an Angling Guide operating in Alberta?

In pursuit of the fishing experience of a lifetime, recreational anglers have been hiring experienced angling guides to accompany them for many decades in Alberta.

The angling guide industry in Alberta is active and diverse. It is supported by guides that have experience and knowledge catching sport fish species on some of Alberta’s most beautiful waterbodies. From the large prairie rivers of picturesque southern Alberta, to remote lakes in the boreal forest and beautiful Rocky Mountain streams, angling guides help anglers create the types of fishing memories that last a lifetime.

The Angling Guide Licence program supports Alberta’s angling guide industry in creating fishing memories for anglers from Alberta and beyond, while contributing to the sustainability of fisheries.

Status Update:

Implementation of the angling guide licence will not occur on April 01, 2022. Based on feedback received from angling guides, the province will continue to collect feedback on licensing needs to inform the development of the new program. Please continue to monitor this webpage and My Wild Alberta - Facebook   for additional updates and opportunities to provide feedback.
