Bow River Report

P8230150.jpg

With the last couple of weeks of weather becoming more consistent. The bow river and surrounding streams have finally started to fish better. Large amounts of caddis are hatching, producing some wicked dry fly fishing later in the evenings. Fish are starting to look up for those bigger meals more consistently producing some great topwater hopper action. Aswell trico's are starting to pop up here and there. Streamers are still fishing well, especially bright and flashy streamers. 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. However, the forecast is calling for some rain next week. If you are looking to get out in the next couple of days, the weather this weekend should produce some good fishing conditions.
