Cool Boating Regulations ??

Hi folks,

I am wondering if any forum member may know if a publication exists, consisting of all our Alberta lakes, and any specific boating restrictions on each particular body of water. i.e. no motor, elec only, .... etc.

I have not had any success in finding one.


Thanks ......... And good fishing to all !!

Rob.

I am wondering the same. I am looking at getting a jet boat. There is a boat launch at indian battle park in lethbridge, but not sure if u can use a powered boat within city limits. Also if u can use one on the lower castle/oldman rivers if a guy accesses them from the oldman resovoir. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Barry Micheals, Alberta Fishing Guide I think thats what the magazine is called.It has all the lake & river listings for AB. Although I have found some info. on some of the listings to be out dated or even wrong. Still a good mag.

The Barry Mitchell guide is not accurate because it hasn't been updated in years. It also has no connection to the law. It's best effort on his part.

Calgary is the only city you cant run a powerboat in city limits. We are planing a trip up the Oldman this spring during high water I think you should be able to get to the gap that time of the year.

I am pretty sure that guys launch their small jet boats at the indian battle park boat launch all the time. That is what I plan on doing if I can ever afford to get a small jet boat. There is lots of water to explore down the oldman.

I don't think that you can run a power boat on the Bow River within Town of Canmore limits either - and definitely not anywhere in Banff Park - except Lake Minnewanka.

Default Boating Regulations

I have launched my 12 foot tin boat with a 8 hp Tohatsu in Exshaw and gone up river towards Canmore a few times. Spent a 2 to 3 hrs going up river at a slow trolling speed casting trolling etc stopping & fishing off the bank. It is a nice trip and can be real quick on the way back.

There is a spot in Exshaw accross from Lac Des Arcs where one can launch & park.

Stupid things aren't cheap are they!! I really want to try exploring upstream on lethbridge, see if I can find some browns and rainbows.

I hear you there. I know of a few spots I would like to get into to see if they hold the trout. I will probably end up shore fishing if I can still get my truck near them.
