D.B.O. Guide Mike Turnbull,a very happy client and a Hopper eating Bow River Trout –
Depending on the day,The Bow River in and below Calgary Alberta is an exceptional river to Fly-Fish because it holds a solid population of brown and rainbow trout that reach trophy size.The month of September and into October is an excellent timeframe to Fly-Fish The Bow River.Why? Hopper fishing is excellent,The B.W.O.’s are hatching and Streamer fishing for aggressive BrownTrout can be outstanding !
