  1. Yeah it was a c-ring
  2. Pinched barbs on 20s

    I have had that experience, kept hooking fish and losing them. But they were rising so aggressively I kept casting. Finally checked the hook after I lost a particularly nice fish and no hook, just the shank of the humpy.
  3. I heard it was chlorinated water. Hopefully that is true, not as toxic as pure chlorine.
  4. Who knows he may have had some fish in his possession too.
  5. Wading Spots on the Bow?

    There are a number of access maps that are available some online. Google and you will probably find something. There are the usual spots in Fish Creek as mentioned and then there is the boat launch by Glenmore. Also as mentioned those are the spots that get tons of pressure.
  6. Cabin on the Liv

    Trapping season is in the winter if I am not mistaken.
  7. Bow River Shampoo

    Yeah in a coin or automatic car wash the effluent goes into the sanitary sewer, then treated. My neighbor had the big bucket of soapy water and the sponge there was literally foam three inches deep on his shiny metal box. All running down the driveway then down to the corner storm sewer which is about 2m away from the Elbow.
  8. Bow River Shampoo

    Probably some dickwad washing his luxury sports vehicle in his driveway. Or pressure washing his house. I saw a neighbor of mine doing that a month ago or so. He was washing his Mercedes with a bucket full of detergent and his hose. I mentioned to him that the effluent goes directly from his driveway into the storm sewer and then into the river. He just looked at me like I was from outer space. You know they educated the school children with the yellow fish program, maybe they should do that with the BIG kids.
  9. Cabin on the Liv

    I ran into a fellow on the river a few years ago that claimed to own a ranch along the river. I forget which section it was now, on the portion over the hill but before the campground at the falls. Myself and my partner were told it was private property and we were trespassing.
  10. Anybody else notice the changes

    Yeah I was in there this weekend, might have been a tad quieter, still lots of people in lots of places doing lots of stuff.
  11. Camping/fishing Castle Area

    Thank god we don't live in Africa. We would have to walk five miles to get muddy water out of a rusty pipe. Taste would not be an issue. Africa, Africa I'm North American, Ha! Ha! Ha!
  12. St Croix Classic rod

    I have one and I like it, a 6 wt. I bought mine about 5 years ago and it is a medium action rod so you have to be patient and wait for it to load on your back cast. I find it to be very accurate when trying to place my fly in a specific location. I can't remember what I paid but seem to remember it was a moderately priced rod. not cheap but not super expensive.
  13. Be careful when grazing!

    Blackberry picking anywhere is great, Idaho, Washington, B.C. to name some I have had experience. I was also waiting for the bear part of the story, which I have heard from others.
  14. Camping/fishing Castle Area

    That's a unique question, and it is a bit of a conundrum. But you could try the store in Beaver Mines, or at the ski hill. I know they are both open, maybe call them or email?
  15. There's a reason the fish population is in decline.
