If you’re a fishing fan, you might be looking for one spot in particular. After all, there are many fishing spots worldwide – known and unknown. But if you know where this one is, you’ll have access to a fishing hole that no one else knows about!
Who doesn’t love a fishing hole?
For many Edmontonians, that fishing hole is in a secluded river valley. However, for those aware of its existence, the fishing spot at Wanuskewin Provincial Park is a secret to everybody.
This is because it’s difficult to find – you must hike down a steep incline and follow a winding path. And once you arrive, the creek is so deep that most people don’t bother fishing because they think they won’t catch anything anyway.
But if you’re willing to put in the effort, this hidden spot can be your best chance of catching a fish. In fact, according to one fisherman who frequents the spot, he has caught three different types of fish here – rainbow trout, brown trout and catfish – all of which are delicious.
So if you’re looking for an adventure outside the city and want to try fishing, check out Wanuskewin Provincial Park – it might just become your new favourite spot!

How to get there?
If you’re looking for a fishing hole nobody knows about, look no further than Edmonton’s notorious ‘Granite Creek.’ It’s a small stream that runs through a residential neighbourhood, and most people there have never heard of it. But if you know where to look, you can find plenty of big fish in Granite Creek.
The area where the stream empties into the river is very shallow, and there’s an excellent way to go from shore to shore on rocks.
It’s a great place to learn about trout fishing – it’s not difficult, but you need to know what you’re doing to catch fish. The water in Granite Creek is clear with a brownish tinge sometimes and an average temperature of around 3°C. You can use many submerged rocks to approach the trout and big trees scattered all over. And no vegetation is higher than your waist, so you should have no trouble spotting them.
Where to go for Trout Fishing: Summer is the best time to try this spot. But if you miss it, you can return during the winter. The best time to fish is between 7:30-8:30 am or 8-9 pm. Also, if you want to try this spot out, go here.
