Bow River Report

Mike and I got out for a float in the city yesterday. The river is running with little more than a foot of visibility, but with enough flows to finally start to push fish to the banks.
The fishing was very inconsistent, with times of absolute mayhem, to hours of the dull-drums. We stuck with fishing big flies off of the banks, as well as some of the bars and buckets.

We found the vast majority of our fish off the banks, and had most of our success with Hickman's Party Boy and Silvey's Sculpin Leech. To put it simply, bigger was better.

Once we get a little more clarity, the river should be amazing. There were an absolute ton of caddis and a fair sized PMD hatch through the mid day.

Pictures to be added soon!
