  1. Hey everyone! I'm pretty pumped to have found this forum, it looks like an awesome resource. I moved to Calgary a little over a year ago, and just this spring decided to get hard into fly-fishing after I got my tax return back. I've been fishing bass on gear my whole life, and did some fly fishing growing up out east. Again, mostly for bass. After living in Toronto for a long time, having a world class trout river 5 blocks away from my apartment is pretty awesome. I've got the bug. For the last month I've been scouting the river and have gone out about half a dozen times and have yet to land a trout. No worries, I'm patient, and I understand that the Bow is a hard place to learn the craft. I've fired off an e-mail to register for the McLennan's "Befriend the Bow" course, which I have been recommended a couple times. The course doesn't happen until August, so I'm looking for additional resources assist in breaking my frustrating, albiet short, curse. Does anyone have any pointers? Maybe books, videos, etc.? I'm not looking for anyone's secret fishing holes - putting in the miles is part of the deal. Adjusting my fishing times is first on my list as I've mostly gone after getting off of work, 5pm - 8:30pm. Do the trout tend to feed more earlier in the morning/late at night? Are people mostly fishing streamers this time of year? It seems a bit high and dirty for dry flies, but I could be way off base. Regardless, any help would be really appreciated! Thanks in advance.

  3. Please post your stories of how the Bow River has changed post flood. Cushing Bridge - 17th Ave SE East Side under the bridge is inaccessible. Tall steep bank with no access to water or bridge from the North side. East Side - South to Inglewood Golf course is fenced, and is inaccessible. East Side - South there is a large rocky flat shore that you cannot reach accept by boat. East Side - North to the Harvie Passage has a deep shore line with fast running water. I estimate about four feet and deeper. From the edge, it drops straight down. There is still a lot of debris knotted against the shore line. West Side under the bridge in inaccessible. Waterline now above the old pathway. West Side - South has massive errosion damage. Tall 20 foot steep bank to the river. Water is deep on this side. West Side - North is accessible with a small peninsula that has developed at the end of the Harvie Passage. Went out Sunday afternoon to see how one of my favourite spots was doing? It's gone. I mean, I cannot stand on the same land I stood on before when I came here to fish. Didn't even get a nibble. Gave up too soon. I was to busy analyzing the river. The river has changed. Wow.
  4. I'm relatively new to fly fishing and was excited about maybe heading towards carseland tomorrow. Any suggestions as to where is a good spot to start my season with.
