Southeastern BC Cutty

Opening weekend on the Elk was a busy one. High waters and cold temperatures made for some slower start to the early season fishing. The golden stone hatch is still going strong and the salmon flies are still kicking around. If you are looking to head down to the ELK this week keep your eye on the weather. The rain southeastern bc is supposed to get in the recent forecast may slow the hatches down and also bump up water levels. Look for seam lines and eddies behind rocks and other natural structures. Often fish will hold in areas where the current is softer, making it easier for them to sit in one position and grab food as it flows by. Starting the day off with nymphs isn't a bad idea, the fish are going to be slower to get moving as the water temperatures are still pretty cold.
