Bow River, Alberta

Species: Rainbow and Brown Trout

This Hotspot is a section on the Bow River outside of Calgary, Alberta. It’s a deep section just below a rocky shallow area. Make sure you fish from this shallow run all the way past the mouth of the Highwood River—this is a very large area so do not dwell on the exact waypoint.

According to the Bow River Hatch Chart, you should use an Adams, Crystal Blue-winged Olive (size 18) during the first two weeks of May, and an Adams, Quad March Brown (size 14) for the remainder of the month.
