Fishing Reports

Bow River Report –April 30, 2012

Although there got to be a little more color to the river late last week, the visibility is still very fishable. Over the weekend the Sheep got cleaner but the Highwood got dirtier. As of Saturday there was about 2 feet of visibility below McKinnons.

Reports from anglers who got out in the rain late in the week indicated very good streamer fishing.

BWO’s have been heavier and there have been March Browns sighted.

All in all, pretty good fishing for end of April. Better than last year!
