Yet again we have had another great week on the Bow. The levels have finally levelled out as a result fish have been starting to eat really well.
Over the course of the day you will see fish eating all kinds of things at different times in the day. Mornings and during the day seems to be subsurface primarily, with the occasional rise here and there on the caddis. When it comes to the evenings, PMD's and caddis are coming off in but loads, and the stones are still hanging around as well. The shop is stocked full of various different stone and caddis patterns so if you're planning on heading out to catch the hatches, we've got the goods. Other than the stones and caddis we highly recommend bring a long a few streamers cause if the fish are down they'll be a chasing.
The upper reaches have caught up to the lower section. Stones, caddis as well as PMD's are out now and the fish are lookin'.
