Fishing There are many opportunities for angling in mountain rivers, streams and lakes in the Canadian Rockies. There are a variety of tours and guided trips available to suit every type of angler, from fully equipped cabin cruisers to walk-and-wade trips, along with basic instruction and expert tips. e You will need a national park fishing permit for angling in the national parks, $8 per day or $25 per year and a British Columbia or Alberta angling license if you plan on fishing in the provincial parks or other areas of the province.

Crouch down, lie on the ground (where it’s safe), get up high and shoot down, etc. Close-ups – Try getting up close and filling the frame with your subject. Weather – Rainy days can be excellent for photographing close-ups such as wildflowers. Cloud formations add visual interest and heavily clouded skies can bring out a distinctively “gloomy” atmosphere. Overcast days diffuse the light and are best for photographing people outdoors as well as forests. Technique – Hold your camera steady, elbows at your side and depress the shutter button lightly with your finger.

Consider others – respect your fellow travelers’ privacy by keeping your noise level to a minimum. Wildlife – do not feed or harass animals or birds. Plants – do not pick plants or cut trees or tree boughs. Trails – stay on the trail, avoid shortcuts and respect closures. Streams, lakes and rivers – keep them pollutant free and pristine. Pets – keep your pet under control or leave it at home. Pack it in, pack it out – take your garbage home – all of it. Human waste – follow proper guidelines for disposal.
