Fishing Reports - August 21

Bow River Report –August 21, 2013

Managed to sneak out and spend a day on the river yesterday. Now that the river is down to a civilized 128 cms there is a lot more river that’s more manageable to fish.

I must admit, I was pretty pleased with the way the river is fishing. Good number of eats on Hopper patterns throughout the day with only one lull for about 45 minutes around 5 PM. Fished the same stretch as a couple of our guides and they reported much the same thing. They also had very good success on Hopper/Dropper setups with smaller bead head nymphs.
