Bow River Report - June 22nd, 2017

Bow River report

Things have changed pretty significantly in the last week. As of this morning, flow levels on the Bow at Calgary are down to 219 CMS and the water clarity is very fishable.

Some of those early season, high, colored water, really big Brown Trout have been caught this week. And continuing the theme of the last year or so, really big Rainbows as well. This is the best time of the year to catch that big slab of a fish on the river!

Bigger, dark streamers are working well on sink tips. Stonefly nymphs fished deep are also the ticket right now.


Hatches: Caddis, *Stoneflies soon!!!*

Dry Flies: Blond Elk Hair Caddis #14, Chubby Chernobyl Black/Tan #6, Berrett’s Brown Leg Golden Stone

Nymphs: Atomic Worm, Tiger Worm-Red, Conestone #6 Rock ‘n’ Roller Stone, Smethurst’s Stone Bomb

Streamers:Moal-Purple, Kreelex Minnow #6, Egg Sucking Leech, 1/4lb Bugger, Ice Pick Streamer-Black, Medusa-Black/Blue

Crowsnest River Report – June 22nd, 2017

Crowsnest River report

The Crow is already down to 13 CMS as of this morning. It will, without a doubt, fish very well in the next few weeks barring any goofy rainfall or something.

Fish are still very imprinted on Stoneflies, so a big dry is not a bad idea. Golden Stones should start right away.

Beauvais, Lee’s and Police Outpost all offer outstanding lake fishing in the area. Summit Lake just over the border into B.C. is also good.


Hatches: Salmonflies, Caddis

Dries: E/C Caddis, Chubby Chernobyl, X-Body Parachute-PMD, Floater In The Pool - Golden

Nymphs: Jimmy Legs, Rock ‘N’ Roller Stone, Pink Headed Stone, Lexy’s Sexy Stone

Streamers: Nongzilla Sculpin, Circus Peanut-White, Silvey’s Sculpin Leech-Blk/Olv/Wht

High Country River Report – June 22nd, 2017

High Country River report

Conditions in the high country are very fishable. Even the Sheep below Okotoks has cleared to the point of being fishable. The high country stuff is a little high and cool but quite clear.

So far, fishing has been pretty good up there considering it’s still June.


Hatches: Stoneflies, Caddis

Dries: Neversink Caddis, Berrett’s Barred Leg-Golden Stone, Chubby Chernobyl

Nymphs: Conestone, Rock “N’ Roller Stone, Jimmy Legs, B/H Prince Nymph

Streamers: Ice Pick-Natural/Silver, Circus Peanut-White, Silvey’s Scuplin Leech-Olv/Blk/White
