Some of the best Hopper fishing of the year has been going on in the last 4 or 5 days. If you want to go Hopper/Dropper, go with a dark nymph like a black Copper John or Prince Nymph.

Boatmen everywhere!!!!

Crowsnest River Report – September 27, 2011

People coming back from the Crow in the last 10 days have, for the most part, indicated fishing was tough. Not to panic, it’s the same thing that happens every year when the Crow gets low and super clear…the fishing gets very technical.
For those that like small flies, spooky and picky fish, and changing flies 17 times on every fish, then the Crow is perfect for you right now.
For those that find that type of fishing somewhat insane, go directly to the riffles and fish Flying Ants of some sort.

Hatches: Hoppers, BWO’s, Boatmen

Nymphs: Bloom’s Tung Dart #14, Tung Stud-Olive #16, Hogan’s Good and Plenty-Olive #14, Water Boatman-Peacock #16

Dries: Quigley’s Midget Caddis-Olive #16, Yeager’s 409-Black #10,  Morrish Hopper- Tan #10, Quigley’s Flag Ant-Black #16
