Bow River Report –August 31, 2011
We are actually having a Hopper year! Who’d of thought, given the late, cold, wet Spring.
Some very good Trico fishing can be found here and there. Also decent numbers of fish up on Caddis. Oh, and Hoppers, it’s been pretty decent out there. Maybe not stellar all of the time but worth doing. And when it’s been good, it’s been very good. Cloudy days will normally mean lots of foam eats. Should start to see Pseudos with the rainy weather over the next couple of days.
