Fish'n Canada Show in action




There’s nothing like fishing in the fall of the year. However, I just had one of the most amazing multiple species river fishing adventures of my life with Ray Kohlruss, the owner of Reel Angling Adventures. I spent two days with Ray on the Athabasca River system fishing and catching huge walleye, burbot, goldeye, and although we didn’t target them, we could have also caught large northern pike within the Athabasca River. The trip comes with it all, great accommodations at the Super 8 only five minutes from the dock, shore lunch, quality fishing gear, and amazing river fishing. I can’t wait to get out with Ray on one of the many lakes he guides on next summer, and if I can’t wait that long I’ll book a day of ice fishing with him.
