Bow River Report -June 21, 2017

Things have changed pretty significantly in the last week. As of this morning, flow levels on the Bow at Calgary are down to 219 CMS and the water clarity is very fishable.

Some of those early season, high, colored water, really big Brown Trout have been caught this week. And continuing the theme of the last year or so, really big Rainbows as well. This is the best time of the year to catch that big slab of a fish on the river!

Bigger, dark streamers are working well on sink tips. Stonefly nymphs fished deep are also the ticket right now.

Hatches: Caddis, *Stoneflies soon!!!*

Dry Flies: Blond Elk Hair Caddis #14, Chubby Chernobyl Black/Tan #6,
Berrett's Brown Leg Golden Stone

Nymphs: Atomic Worm, Tiger Worm-Red, Conestone #6
Rock 'n' Roller Stone, Smethurst's Stone Bomb,

Streamers: Moal-Purple, Kreelex Minnow #6, Egg Sucking Leech,
1/4lb Bugger, Ice Pick Streamer-Black, Medusa-Black/Blue

Seven-day forecast 

Dropping steady now.
