Fishing Reports June 30

Bow River Report –June 30, 2010

The wet weather is but a memory now, the river looks really juicy, and water levels are dropping.

Dry fly fishing has been good, especially in the morning hours and then again late. PMDs and Caddis are present in good numbers with fish eating them. Stoneflies are present as well with some fish starting to get on them.

Nymph fishing has been quite good. Large Stones being the best bet right now.

Streamer fishing of late (last 4 days) has ranged everywhere from superb to really tough. Some banks and structures offering aggressive fish, other normally great water producing very little. Overall, streamer fishing has been pretty good with some real big fish being caught. Large, dark streamers that sink fast have been the best but as the water clears smaller streamers will be effective as well.

Hatches: PMD’s, Caddis, Stoneflies.

Streamers: Bush’ Witch Doctor, Silvey’s Sculpin Leech (Black w/ Olive, White Head), Clousers, Karnopp’s Stream-A Stone, Hickman’s Party Boy

Nymphs: Fox’s Beech Creek, Morrish’s WMD (Dark Stone), Hogan’s Chubby Cousin, Bloom’s Tung Dart, Gob-O-Worms.

The Crow has dropped back down to 12 CMS, a more normal level for this time of year. As a result you can find some dry fly fishing at the Crowsnest now.
