Bow River

Tip of the week 

Bow River Report

For nymphing, a Hopper-Dropper rig will work just fine. You might want to change it up and show the fish something different in the way of a foam bug. Try something more along the lines of a Cricket, Beetle, or Cranefly.

Streamer fishing has been good. The dry fly fishing was so good for so long a lot of people ignored the streamer fishing but if you give it a try, it's pretty good.

Don't forget, the Fish Creek boat launch closes on Saturday, August 16 for about two weeks for repairs. All other downstream launches are open.
