Much like the southwestern streams of Alberta, the elk also got hit with some pretty heavy rainfall this past week. The good news is that water levels are dropping and water clarity is starting to improve. The recent rain has been producing some great Green drake hatches, although there is little rain in the upcoming forecast make sure to have a variety of green drake patterns in different sizes if you are planning to head down to the elk this weekend. Water temperatures are still a little cold therefore starting the day off with nymphs have proven to be more productive, as the water temperatures are colder earlier in the day. Closer to noon the fish should start to become more active and start looking for those tasty dry flies.
