Bow River Report

P8230150.jpg

Caddis, Caddis and more Caddis. If you have been on the Bow River in the evening these last couple days you probably noticed the mass amounts of caddis hatching on the river right now. Caddis dry flies have been an affected pattern this week to target those pods of rising fish, especially along with deep grassy cut off banks. Stoneflies are still hatching here and there, and fish are still rising to them. Along with stoneflies and caddis dries, streamers have proven to be an effective technique to poke a fish or two these last couple weeks. Try brighter streamer patterns during the day and darker patterns in the evening after the sunsets.

The weather is starting to shape up for the better which means more consistent flows and clarity for the rest of the season. If we do get rain overnight expect the river to bump up a little and get a little dirty but this will clear up quickly.
