Hibernation certainly describes what happens to me with the long Canadian winters. The days are now longer and the summer solstice is closer to the horizon. The mountains have a decent amount of snow as do the lower foothills. Runoff is still a ways away, but the snow at lower levels around here in Okotoks and Calgary will certainly find its way into the Bow. Currently flies are being tied and equipment inventory is taken to get ready for another season. Providing water levels are more or less normal i expect the Bow River to continue to deliver excellent Fly Fishing. Last year we experienced better fishing since the 2013 flood and i expect this trend to continue, hatches will intensify and the banks will grow more habitat as mother nature repairs itself.
