Crowsnest River Salmonflies

The salmonfly hatch is in full swing on the Crowsnest River and fishing conditions couldn’t be better. It’s not very often where the river is clear and fishable during this elusive hatch. It is this year, though. This stonefly hatch occurs every year but it usually coincides with the spring runoff, a time where the river is running high and discolored. Everything has come together perfectly this time around, and who knows, it might be another 10 years before it happens again.

Ice-Out Observations

Waiting for the ice to melt on a frozen lake can be like watching paint dry. You have to be patient because sometimes it can take a while. Ice-out is a few weeks late this year but it appears to be starting on several of our local lakes. Continue reading »

Another Walk in the Woods

In early January, I posted an article here of a snowshoeing trip I made along Allison Creek, west of Coleman in Crowsnest Pass. Since then, we’ve received a pile more snow in the Pass. Warm Chinook winds that often blow over the Rockies from the Pacific have been few and far between this winter. As a result, there has not been a lot of melting going on. Street corners and boulevards in our towns are lined with snowbanks, piled ten feet high in places. Backyards and front yards are filled to capacity. Everyone is running out of space to put their snow. For the past two months, there’s either been too much snow for me to shovel on my days off, or it’s been way too cold outside to even bother getting out on my snowshoes. All that changed a couple of days ago when I was able to go for another walk in the woods. Continue reading »

Last Day of Trout Season

Today is the final day of the 2017 fishing season on the majority of rivers and streams in southwest Alberta. It seems like only yesterday that I was looking forward to another great season on these waters. Beginning tomorrow, November 1, there’s only going to be a couple of rivers around here where anglers will be permitted to fish. These include portions of the Crowsnest and Oldman rivers. At least there are some places where folks will be able to stream-fish over the coming winter months, if they so desire.
