Bow River Report –October 5, 2010

The weather continues to be pretty nice (which we immensely deserve this year).
With the exception of a pretty significant jump in water level late last week, from mountain snowmelt of all things, the fishing has been pretty decent. The levels have dropped way down from where they were Thursday/Friday of last week.

There have been a few pretty stellar Boatman days lately and it will likely continue. If you take your time and look around there have been a fair number of rising fish on Pseudus, Baetis, even Caddis. There have even been a ton of Flying Ants on the water the last couple of days.

This past weekend I had a fair number of eats on an October Caddis so an orange bodied foam bug like the Morrish October Caddis or Orange Mutant Stone is not a bad idea.

Hatches: BWO’s, Water Boatmen, October Caddis

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

Crowsnest River Report – October 5, 2010

Things are all back to normal on the Crow again. Clear and a LOT lower. Reports from the past few days have been quite good. Typical of this time of year, the fish are “bulking up”. With some pretty big fish being caught in the riffles and bars.

Hopper/Ant fishing was pretty good this past weekend.

Hatches: BWO’s, Hoppers, Ants

Streamers: Brunette Leech, Chamois Leech.

Nymphs: Pheasant-Tail, Hare's Ear, Copper John, Tung Stud, and San Juan Worm

Dries: Chernobyl Ant-Black/Tan, Etha-Wing Dun-BWO, Etha Wing Emerger-BWO, Frankenhopper, Rainy’s Grand Hopper

High Country River Report – October 5 , 2010

Things have shaped up on the High Country Streams and this warmer weather is just what the Doctor ordered. Fishing has been good of late with the smaller, BWO type bugs being the best bet.

Don’t know whether you noticed, but you have about three more weeks on these streams before seasonal closure. You might want to get a last kick at the cat (or Cutt, so to speak).

Hatches: BWO’s, Ants

Streamers: Brunette Leech, Chamois Leech, Large, olive or white streamers for Bull Trout.

Nymphs: Pheasant-Tail, Hare's Ear, Copper John, Tung Stud, and San Juan Worm

Dries: Etha Wing Dun-BWO, Rainy’s Grand Hopper, BWO Thorax, Wilcox Glo-Ant
