The Bow River Chapter
The Bow River Chapter was formed in 1985 by leaders in the Calgary fishing community who were concerned for a sustainable Bow River fishery. The “Blue Ribbon Bow River” was starting to be recognized as one of the leading trout fisheries in North America. The pressure on the river’s ecosystem and fish habitat has increased over recent years with the growth of the City of Calgary. The Bow River Chapter in cooperation with Trout Unlimited Canada, local government and industry support has undertaken a large number of habitat improvement, fish monitoring, education and advocacy projects in the Bow River Basin.
The Bow River Chapter undertook a complete review of the chapter’s operation and generated a Strategic Plan that can be found under the title, A Vision for the Future – Part 1: Plan Mandate and A Vision for the Future – Part 2: Implementation in the News and Reports section of our Website.
