Still Plenty of Water!

Updated: Jul 1, 2018

I took my youngest son John and Jeff Hassler down river yesterday. Jeff is an old student of mine that I coached, he now plays professional rugby in Europe and is here for a short visit. We ventured on the Bow and streamer fished for a few hours. The visibility was 6", maybe a foot but who's arguing, the river is flowing high and is off colour! We hooked three fish, had great visit and called it a day. The silver lining is we have plenty of water, but I'm thinking the season should kick-off around stampede, July 7th, that is barring any downpours of rain. Well, I'm off to the mountains on Canada Day seeking clear water while happily casting dry flies. Let's hope the trout are looking up!
