Fall is in the air ! Cooler Temps will get things moving even more.Depending on the river we are witnessing hatches of Nocturnal Stones,October Caddis,B.W.O.’s ,Hoppers and Other Terrestrials.During non hatch periods Streamer fishing has been good.Flows are low and Fall fishing is full on give us a call @800-453-3991 or email us !
Fishing remains strong on all The Rivers we guide on.Cooler Temps have created a feeding frenzy of sorts.Hoppers Continue to be the mainstay especially on The Bow River.Southern Alberta Rivers are also fishing well, depending on the river and elevation hatches are all over the map but once again Hopper fishing remains strong.
S.E. British Columbia fishing ( The Elk River & Tribs ) has also bee pretty darn good.Terrestials,Flavs,Noctorunal Stones have been getting things done.October Caddis are also now starting to show up.
If you are looking for a quick Fall Trout Fix Look no further than Alberta and B.C. email or call us @800-453-3991 and lets talk Fishing !
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.
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.
Moving into the last week of August,Anglers can expect to see hatches of B.W.O.’s ,Pink Alberts,Tricos and October Caddis ..depending on the river.For more information or to book a trip Contact Us or call 800-453-3991
Despite warm temps the rivers are holding up well.The Elk River and Tribs continue to fish good,Terestrials are getting it done, hatches include Flavs,Nocturnal Stones, Caddis.The same hold true for the Saint Mary River.
Over in Alberta Hopper fishing is the norm,Anglers wanting to match the hatch can easily do so with foam Hoppers and other terrestrial patterns.We are also seeing (depending on the river ) hatches of Caddis,Tricos,Pink Alberts.
The Bow River continues to amaze Anglers with the off the charts Hopper fishing it’s that good.As air temperatures cool down watch for hatches of October Caddis and B.W.O’s Fall will be in the air sooner than later.
