  1. So I fish the Elbow and the population there has definitely changed; when I first fished it 25+ years ago there were fish rising everywhere and the sizes ranged from tiddlers to 20 inch fish. I caught mainly browns, but there were brookies, rainbows, bulls, whitefish, cutties and pike. Last fall I fished it and there were fish rising and I caught tiddlers and decent sized fish of around 15 inches mainly browns but some rainbows and whitefish. That being said the population numbers are down, the holding water is completely changed due to 2013, but I don't think the pressure is any higher. I rarely see any other anglers. Any thoughts and theories on this?
  2. With the Elbow the ring road construction is also a factor.
  3. Unfortunately even though there were plenty of people around, no one thought to chase after the red SUV pulling a blue and white speedboat. They all remembered to take pictures of the bones sticking out of my arm.
  4. Thanks for your kind thoughts and wishes. Pain is not bad, good drugs, and depending on what the specialist says the sky is the limit.
  5. I went to Baynes Lake for my vacation and ended up catching two bass on a mouse pattern. The bad part was I got run off the road on my bicycle just beside Kikomun and basically tore my left arm off at the elbow. Five hours of surgery in Cranbrook later I am back together but have a long recovery, rehab and physio in front of me. No fishing for the foreseeable future. If you are behind a cyclist and there is no shoulder don't try to pass, in a few meters there is usually room.
  6. A friend of mine has had a cabin off the Big Prairie Road for 15 years and he told me they are common in that area.
  7. Wow, might wash up at the weir in Carseland
  8. Good luck. My guess is Jason Trump err I mean Kenney is going to cut spending on non-essential services to the bone. All you non-essential fly anglers.
  9. I only got to fish a little but the Yukon River gave me some big chunky grayling.
  10. Interesting that the fish in the Madison have developed a resistance.
  11. Another option is the Hook and Hackle Club, there are some very good resources to be had.
  12. There is a large group of people that are purely catch and keep anglers who would rather have a bucket full of small perch than the pleasure of catching a trophy trout. I have run into them all over the province and most noticeably in Central Alberta, caught some very nice browns on Stauffer one day and when I ran into a group at the access point, they asked how I had done. When I replied about the fish I caught they asked where the fish were, I said I let them go. The response was "Yeah right, good one". Your not a successful angler unless you keep what you catch.
  13. I have done the nest destruction before when they were building in my backyard, easy enough to get up. This one is hanging out over the street and about 80 ft in the air. Will try some other tricks I have been told and will see what happens.
