Bow River Report –March 19, 2012

Fishing has been pretty darn good over the last week. A few of us here have been out a few days and anyone through the shop who’s been fishing all agree, good fishing!

Nymphing with the Jimmy Legs has been, from all accounts, stupid!
A two fly rig with a Jimmy Legs and a smaller bead head has been quite effective.

Streamer fishing has been somewhat bipolar. At times it has been very good, other times not so much.

Still waiting on evidence of good old fashioned rising fish with consistency.

Sounds like we might have to be patient with a little step back in terms of weather for some of this week but after that it looks good.
