Bow River

Tip of the week 

Bow River Report - August 31, 2015

The deep nymphing has been kind of stupid (good) of late. San Juan patterns like Atomic Worm, Reeses Pieces, and Wire Worms rack up fish numbers like crazy right now. The fish we are seeing are long, fat, and hot!

Hopper fishing has been pretty good, but not every day and not necessarily all day. A good description would be "inconsistent". Still a good number of Caddis around, but not too many fish looking up for them. Same with Tricos, but there are more Trico fish to be found lower down.

Streamer fishing continues to be good. White and Tan colored streamers with flash seem to be the best bet.

This weekend's forecast is for cooler, wet weather. Likely see Pseudos and Baetis and maybe a few more rising fish to go along with them.

There's starting to be a ton of Boatmen lower down on the river. That should get going in the next month as well.
