Ronan's report


Tuesday 22 July, 2014

Southern Alberta is coming into it's prime fishing season. Stream temperatures are good, although pushing to a bit to high in some areas. Nights are still cool enough to bring the temperatures down and days are warm enough to make wet wading comfortable.

This week I had a chance to fish a few different waters. I started looking for rainbows, but ended up catching walleye and pike in a warmer backwater area of a great river. The week took a later path to a small creek, full of willing brookies, cutties, and rainbows. A great place to hand somebody a fly rod for the first time!

The last stop was a very interesting one. At the location you can find lake trout, brown trout, rainbows, cutthroat, whitefish, and all the interesting coarse and forage fish species that support a good fishery. The gradient picks up in this reach and water tumbles over ancient rock. Mayflies, caddis, and stonefly live in abundance, despite the cold oligotrophic water.

A healthy school of whitefish was feeding heavily in one of the pools, chasing caddis and midge pupa as the rose through the water column. Below them, in the deep, you could see large suckers cruising along the bottom and trout in a couple of schools along the edges. It was great to see a fish community that appeared healthy, especially with the decline in the mountain whitefish population.

Aside from the hours of watching ospreys, and swallows, schools of fish, and helping folks get into flyfishing, driving through some beautiful scenery, and six species on the fly, the week was okay.

Looking forward to the rest of summer,
Harps
