This is the World Renowned Blue Ribbon Section of the Bow River. Made Famous by its strong acrobatic rainbows, and impressively large browns, all of which are wild stock. This stretch of the Bow River has between 2000 and 2500 fish per mile. The rainbows are originally of a steelhead strain, and the moment you hook into to one of these fish you’ll know. There are two strains of Bow River Browns, the German and the Scottish, and no single word can adequately describe some of these fish except for absolute “hawgs”.
There are hopper and streamer banks that will leave your knees shaking, riffles and flats that beg for a well presented dry fly and runs filled with fish waiting for a nymph to tumble by in the current. The Lower Bow is a beautiful stretch of river filled with abundant wildlife, birds, and appealing scenery that will distract you to no end, even if only for a moment. Dry fly fishing, nymphing, and streamer fishing are all effective techniques that can be employed depending on the situation. Your guide will help you decide which technique will be most effective and enjoyable for you given the fishing situation, and is there to help you master them.
Enjoy a full day of fly fishing the world renowned Bow River from our Mackenzie style flat bottomed drift boats. You can bring your own gear or feel free to use our gear; we can and will provide (waders, boots, rods, reels and line, tippet, and flies.) Your Guide will put you on the best water giving you the chance to hook that fish of a lifetime.
Whether it’s a personal trip or your wish to entertain and reward clients, our goal is to make your day the best possible experience.
Our full day float trips are not run on a clock or a 9-5 schedule. We've yet to meet fish that feed on a 9-5 schedule, so we don't run our trips that way either.
*All float trip rates are for the cost of the guide and boat for the day.*
Included in the full day rate is: all equipment(waders, boots, rods, reels flies, tippet ect.), lunch, non-alcoholic drinks, and snacks for 1 or 2 people. The only costs not included are your fishing license, tax (5% GST), and guide gratuities which are customary.
