Streamer eating Elk River Bull Trout

Generally Fishing Conditions in the Canadian Rockies(The Bow,Elk,Oldman and Saint Mary Rivers’) remain strong.Clients are having a great time throwing Hopper and other Terrestrial Patterns when the fish are looking up which right now is most of the time.We think this pattern will continue well into September.

 

Streamers have been producing 

During non -hatch periods or when the fish are not looking for Hoppers Anglers have experienced some very good to excellent Streamer fishing fo above average fish.
