We fish hoping that that day comes together and the fish really bite! Tuesday, July 10 happened to be such a day with a customer I have guided for over a decade. I sit here chuckling over all the fun we have shared together fly fishing the #BowRiver, and even though the river fished really well, you still just wind up logging it into your memory, hoping it comes together the next time you fish. Summer is here!
It is nice to see the river shaping up. The insects are moving around and the fish are looking up, dry flies! Johnny our youngest has his birthday July 11 so we fish a river D.F.O. "dry fly only" and yesterday was our day. The fish obliged eating his offering rendering a feeling of contentment that only a day casting dry flies can do. Perfect!!! Jennifer had her first day guiding on the River with Yvonne experiencing her very first time #flyfishing. They had a wonderful day
After Thursday's outing the #BowRiver was really high with low visibility along with coloured feeder streams. Friday the river dropped significantly and started to look much better. On Saturday we did some work for the AGOAA up keeping the boat launches. The river is certainly coming around, while cleaning up and chatting with my friend we both concurred, Big Brown trout are surely going to be caught streamer fishing. Dry fly fishing is just around the corner, it is my favour
Runoff has commenced on the Bow. The river is running at about 300 cubic meters the visibility is about a foot to 18 inches. You could fish it but conditions are far from ideal. We have yet to see any significant rain, but June is supposedly our wettest month so we will wait and see. The rainbows are returning from their spawn and finding their news homes and the browns are thriving with the absent rainbows. So we are a few of weeks away before the riv. settles and good stuff
