August has now past the Riv. is low the water temperature is cool and the trout are happy, taking hoppers and small nymphs. The trico fishing has dwindled but on the right day olives have provided fine fare for rising fish. Yes, mix in caddis flies and the dry fly fishing continues to rock. September,is upon us with the changing colours and the first of the frosty mornings. Best we get out there and make the most of 2018 season.

A nice brown trout being gently released.

August is here and the river has been hot depending on the day. Seems like every afternoon the gurgle of thunder is somewhere in valley bringing its clouds and puffs and wind. No matter, put your jacket on and keep casting that bug. You never know on the Bow! BIG BROWN TROUT will come along and eat your offering. We have not landed "Black Book" brown yet. However, that's not to say we are not in the game hoppertunities are practically daily. The fish are big and are tricky to; entice, hook (let them eat it, difficult when they scrutinize follow and eat it going downstream) and land. Nevertheless, super exciting and can't wait to go out again next time. Trico and caddis fishing has kicked off, so its dry flies all around, unless you want break up your day and give a streamer a good go. In short, the best time to be on the BOW IS NOW!

One of the Best and a really good angler.

The season is in full swing with it's many hours on the river searching for the "one" - a big brown trout willing to eat a foam bug. 2018 is certainly a year with good water levels and the fish are fattening up. Dry fly fishing has been good, caddis flies in their various emerging stages are getting the trout sip on top. As summer passes the water levels are dropping, the trico fishing with clouds of tiny mayflies appearing like plumes of smoke will continue to provide food for rising trout. The hoppers are now coming into play and a smorgasbord of food is available. August is a great time of year to hook into a real Bow River tank!
