The Bow - The river has dropped nicely over the past few days and clarity/conditions are improving. We are keeping an eye on what's happening with stream flows from upstream as well as the local forecasts.
All in all conditions are about where we would expect them to be on the Bow for this time of year.
Nymphing has been reasonably consistent and a larger dry fly (stonefly) with a dropper has also been producing. Streamer fishing has improved as water conditions have dropped.
Flies to try:
Dries: Caddis, yellow sallies, stonefly dries (with a dropper.)
Nymphs: Wire worms, Reese's Pieces, stonefly nymphs like the rubber leg squirrel, smethurst stone bomb; prince nymphs, hare's ears. (Consider checking out our selection of standard nymphs tied on jig-style hooks - hare's ears, pheasant tails, princes to name a few), leech patterns
Streamers: Kreelex minnows, Clouser minnows, Galloup's Dungeons or mini dungeons, Bow River buggers.
(June 16th - opening day is coming for the East Slopes Streams. From all reports the region is shaping up quickly with streams running on the low side of normal.)
