Did you know the 2009 Alberta and British Columbia fishing licenses are available for purchase online? The availability of licenses via the Internet can be a real time-saver. What’s great about this, too, is these licenses are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
British Columbia implemented online licensing last year and it’s now possible to purchase your Basic and Classified Waters licenses by visiting the BC government web site. We are a vendor for BC licenses and you can continue to purchase them at our shop, as usual. However, keep in mind we only have one computer terminal available to issue BC licenses and appreciate your patience when obtaining the Basic and Classified Waters licenses. To avoid potential line-ups and/or waiting time, anglers may want to consider purchasing licenses online, in advance.
Your BC license will have an angler number printed at the top of the page. You will need to use this number to purchase Classified Waters licenses. You will also need this number when purchasing next year’s Basic license. It’s a good idea to record your angler number on a separate piece of paper for future reference.
You can purchase BC licenses by clicking here.

CROWSNEST ANGLER FISHING REPORT UPDATE
For those of you who like to check our Crowsnest Angler Fishing Report on our web site, today’s posting will be the last one for about a week or so. I’m heading out on a fly-in, fly-fishing trip to Northern Alberta and won’t be around to update the report or answer email until June 8th. In the meantime, our staff will be monitoring stream conditions daily. Please call the shop for info. I’ll be posting a full report of my trip, along with photos, when I return. Have a great week, everyone!
