Bow River Report –September 9, 2010

Dry fly fishing has been pretty good of late. Blue Winged Olives as well as Hoppers offering the best success. Although our weather seems to be very Fall-like, it has produced some very good fishing days.

There have been a few fairly epic streamer days when the weather has been socked in. River levels are very low so there are structures (bars and buckets) that are accessible and fishable. A lot of them even with floating lines.

The Boatman fishing is in full swing so an appropriate pattern behind a streamer, by itself, or under a Hopper will produce.

Hatches: BWO’s, Hoppers, Water Boatmen

Streamers: Party Boy, Silvey’s Sculpin Leech (Black w/ Olive, White Head), Marabou Clousers, Articulated Leech-Black or Purple
