View Full Version : NSR Fishing - Where to go....

02-28-2007, 07:09 PM
Hey guys, normally I spend my summers between University playing in the mountains but I landed a great job in Edmonton for this summer.

I love river fishing and have lived in Edmonton for the past 4 winters. Anyone have any good advice for places to start fishing the NSR in the spring/summer?

If anyone is interested I would love to team this spring/summer and spend some time getting to know the river.

I know theres good amounts of goldeye, pike, and a few burbot along that rip-rap by that boat/ferry operation. Its pretty deep as well. I'd imagine anglings allowed, correct me if theres some special downtown Edmonton clause. Thats the only section i'm really familiar with.

downstream SplitBrow, Downstream:) Fort Sask areas can give a guy fishing overload syndrome

The Fort Sask area is awesome... but the fellow that own the land across the Sturgeon used to give me and my buddies crap about fishing that area... he tried to tell us he owned that part of the river (we didn't pay him much attention). There's also good fishing downtown behind Telus Field, but it's hard to find parking.
