In the heart of endless farm and ranch country in southwest Alberta lies an undiscovered area with impressively large trout, wide open country and very little angling pressure. It is in this area that Cam Jensen has set up his Eastslope Adventures. Eastslope Adventures guides a host of productive and unspoiled trout fisheries in southwest Alberta, including the Castle, Oldman, Waterton and St. Mary’s river drainages. Cam and his guides specialize in fishing dry flies to large trout while wading. Although the bulk of this program is walk and wade, the early season is dominated by drift trips in rafts. Packages include accommodations and meals at a rustic log lodge situated on the Waterton River. This is the same river that recently produced Alberta’s new record brown trout.

Eastslope Adventures Location:
Eastslope Adventures is located in southwest Alberta, approximately 30 miles west of Cardston, Alberta.


Eastslope Adventures Fishing Program:

This fishing program is centered around hunting big fish on dry flies. For most of the season you can count on walking and wading all day, driving from one private access to the next. Although this trip is best suited for reasonably fit anglers, the wading is not difficult and walks to the river are flat and short. There are times, primarily during the early season, that the guides will use rafts with rowing frames to access the rivers.

Due to the amount of world-class fishing opportunities in close proximity, anglers should come prepared to fish a variety of different waters. After dinner each night Cam will sit down with your group and discuss a strategy for the next day’s fishing based upon current conditions and angler preferences. If conditions have changed by the next morning, the plan will likely change also.

This is a truly wild trophy trout fishery with prolific insect hatches and catch rates will vary from day-to-day. On the best days you can hook serious numbers of fish but this is best thought-of as a quality, not quantity destination. Anglers can expect to hook 10 – 15 fish per person per day. Keep in mind that on some of these fisheries half, or more, of those fish will be over 19”. Fish in the 26 – 28” range are hooked weekly.

Additional Experiences:
Guided waterfowl hunts in September. Give us a call if you’re interested in a cast and blast trip!

Eastslope Adventures Accommodations and Meals:
The Eastslope Adventures lodge comfortably caters to eight anglers in seven spacious single or double occupancy rooms with attached private baths. The rustic log-built lodge is situated mere yards from a productive stretch of the Waterton River, allowing anglers to fish the home waters unguided in the evenings or early mornings. It has a wonderful great room with a stone fireplace and a large deck overlooking the river. Hearty home style meals are served at a large family style table in the dining room. After breakfast each morning a lunch bar is set up for anglers to make their own sandwiches before setting off for the day’s fishing.
