I used to hear about how great this Fishery was for Giant Brown Trout on Dry Flies.

I fished it with a Guide 4 or 5 times in the early 2000's and it was wonderful..

I recall that there used to be a guiding community  located in Red Deer to facilitate tourists etc..

What happened ?

Floods, rampant poaching and an ever growing population of walleye and pike have made the brown trout's life quite difficult in the Red Deer river. I've only fished it since 2011 when I moved to Red Deer but with each passing year their numbers seem to decrease a bit. I've spoken with quite a few members of the local fly fishing community and it seems water quality and hatch numbers aren't what they once were as well.
