Talk to Phil Rowley at the Calgary Fly Fishing Expo which is just in a few weeks. Phil wrote an article about the tiger trout of Manitoba. I can't remember which magazine it was in. But I'm sure Phil will remember.

The Place I know of it a lake called Little Bear in Saskatchewan which has some pretty good Tigers hunting in its waters. It is about 2.5hr NE of Prince Albert. and about a 10-11 hr drive from Calgary depening on how fast you drive.

Here is the list of the stocking program in Sask for 2009. Lists lakes where they stocked Tiger Trout.

Cross between a brown and a brookie. A few occur in Alberta but it's extremely rare. I only know of one confirmed tiger trout from Alberta and it was caught by fish and wildlife many many years ago. I would like to see the AFGA request tiger trout stocking in lakes with illegal perch introductions. They're aggressive and would compete with perch better than rainbows do. Had to share that idea even if it only fits loosely into this discussion.

Brook/Brown Hybrid.

They can vary, depending on the stock used to cross the two.

Little Bear Lake itself does not have tiger but a lake very close to it does. That whole area is littered with lakes holding various kind of trout and char. In some of the lakes you have a shot at rainbows, browns, brookies, splake, lake trout and tiger trout all in the same lake. Why don't we have this? In my experience though they could use some tighter limits. Lots of people there fish to fill their freezer and I think it is showing in catch rates.
