  1. Doesn’t it mean??? You follow General regs June 16 - Aug 31 Then you follow the special regulations listed. Sept 1 - Oct 31 (5 whitefish) The listed special regulation deviates from the general river regulation of 0 whitefish Sept 1 - Oct 31.
  2. I liked the event. Very engaging Biologist willing to share info and their ideas. Liked the come and go format, thought all of the AEP staff were very approachable. They seemed to care and were enthusiastic in talking to the public. Some very good (and weird) feedback on the post it notes at each station. I will be watching with interest to see what happens.
  3. For those interested: Bow River Trout Foundation is hosting a Fall Fishing Festival on Sept 28th. At the dinner portion of the event some of the issues mentioned above will be presented and discussed: Further synopsis below: Paul Christensen, Senior Bow River Basin Fishery Biologist, will be presenting the population update. He will touch on the following topics during his presentation: How a population estimate is accomplished. The 2018 population summary from the survey completed in September 2018. A short summary of the 2019 fishery population study (took place from September 9-13th.) Age Growth for the Bow River trout how quickly they grow how large a certain age fish is how large/old when they start to spawn Summary of 2018 Creel Survey including a look at angler effort and where anglers are from. Some projects that have been happening within the Bow System. Some thoughts on what the Bow Fishery looks like into the future.
  4. Tons of logging trucks on that road as they are pulling logs out of fire zones 7 days a week, tread carefully in the tight spots, and watch the corners. Enjoy! Bigger isn't necessarily better when choosing your fly in this area.
  5. My experience with the copious amounts of kids I teach is that he probably picked up this bad habit from some shady friend on some sleezy backcountry stream. Hopefully they don’t introduce him to other bad habits like slough sharks. Everyone knows rainbows are just the gateway.
  6. Don’t forget upper bow. Banff - Canmore (lonnnnggg float in very beautiful country) Canmore - Exshaw (bring a trolling motor for last slow section)
  7. With the online reservation system for front and back country camping I thought it would. Plus you can buy your park pass online. Tech would be the same I don’t understand why they haven’t.
  8. Yep thats where I started, found the local fly shop online. Also found a blog article and good Yukon online resource. Was just looking for some more intimate or personal experiences.
  9. No section below for this I guess...so put it here. Headed to Whitehorse Aug 2-9 Will spend a few days there, then touring to Dawson and Skagway. $25 license is appealing. Will bring rods. Can only walk and wade and I’m not afraid to hike and explore. Looking for some general guidance to cut down on searching time. Looks to be lots of grayling, what else?
  10. Man that is pretty cool...love the renderings you did. Pretty solid skill set you have there! I taught my students a little AutoCAD and Revit, takes a lot of work to make something as nice as you did. My skills are no where near where yours are (or my students) Nice design, like all the different fish on the casing. Drag looks pretty solid! awesome post all around!
  11. I think a lot of these projects are on hold until the BRAP is released (Bow River Action Plan). From my understanding it should be released shortly, which will hopefully provide the direction and timelines that many of these projects will take.
  12. Delayed.....no update given as of yet as to when the project will move forward.
  13. It will be a full day kinda deal. No end time given. But since it is a government job, I am sure that there will be ample coffee breaks and a long lunch. My guess is you should be done by 4 or 5.
  14. From the Bow River Trout Facebook page: If you are interested in volunteering to assist with the AEP fish population surveys next week, please send me a PM and I will pass on our presidents contact info. Will keep his phone number off a public site. Two volunteers are needed on Tuesday, Thursday & Friday, Sept 11, 13 &14 One volunteer is needed on Monday or Wednesday Sept 10 & 12 Meet at Fish Creek Boar Ramp 9.00 AM each morning New info: The 2018 Bow River Fish Population Study will be expanded to include 12 new sites within Calgary and the Lower Bow stretch of the river the week of September 17. 3 sites between Bearspaw and Harvie Passage 4 sites between Harvie Passage and Policeman's Flats 3 sites between Cottonwoods and McKinnon's Flats 2 sites below McKinnon's Flats and Carseland. When the final analysis come out of these new locations and compared to the historical sites used below Policeman's Flats, it will be interesting to see what the trout population estimate will be for the entire Blue Ribbon Bow River
