Fishing Report – Hopper Time

Elk River Hopper eater

As we head into August we are stoked about the amount of Hoppers we are seeing…everywhere!The Elk River is really shaping up,currently hatches of Caddis and Flavs are happening and Streamer fishing during none hatch  periods is very effective.Over in SW Alberta the same holds true for the hatches and once again fish are starting to key in on Hoppers.

Up on The Bow River hatches of caddis and PMD’s have got some fish looking up.Hoppers are also on the ticket and the Trico hatch should start soon!August is going to be awesome.Flows are good and the fish are happy !
