With a myriad of colors along its edges and big, feisty fish beneath the surface, the Bow continues to beckon. We love this time of year on the river.  Stories of boatmen emergences earlier in the week and reports of the odd fish landed on dry BWO imitations make it challenging to focus on the [...]

Localized thunderstorms continue to roll through the city and cause (cooling) influxes of water to the Bow. They also impact river clarity which is currently at about 18″.

Fishing Forecast – July 16, 2016

Well…. We needed this rain although it would be ok for it to move along now. The Bow river is off color – beyond streamer green and verging on chocolate milk this a.m. Additionally, there is another 40+mm of rain forecast for upstream today. The increased moisture means the reservoirs are recovering from early season [...]
