Elk River and Tribs Update

The Elk is clearing and sloooowly dropping and the bigger fish are starting to move into the prime lies as the seams and current breaks develop. Golden Stonefly patterns are what all of us are throwing about 95% of the time, althought the occasional drake and PMD brings up some fish.

The tribuataries are running fast and streams such as the Wigwam and Fording are still pumping and will not be ready for another few weeks. In Alberta the Crowsnest has provided some excellent dry fly fishing with large stones and we expect the PMDs will be happening within the next few days.

Temps on the Elk river are in the high 40's to low 50's and the fishing is generally picking up later in the afternoon as the water warms. PMD spinner falls will be happening soon which means some epic evening fishing in both BC and Alberta, both areas should start peaking this week.
