There are different fishing regulations between Nose Creek pond and Nose Creek and they are subject to change. The Province may implement time of day restrictions depending on water flow and temperature.
If you are under 16 years of age or an Alberta resident aged 65 or older you are not required to have a Sportfishing License to fish with a rod and reel; however, you must follow Alberta’s sportfishing regulations. If between 16 and 65, you are required to have a fishing license.
Plan to spend a morning, afternoon or evening of FREE fishing at Nose Creek pond as an activity with the family to enjoy. During Family Fishing Weekend on July 8 - 9, Albertans and visitors are encouraged to give fishing a try without having to purchase a sportfishing licence.
National Fishing Week occurs each year during the second week of July. For more information, visit My Wild Alberta.
