Fish of the Day

April 15th ... winter just dosn,t want to leave ... three years ago I thought April was the best month of the year on the Crow .. two years ago .. not quite so hot .. and this year it,s been cold and alot of nymph fishing has been going on .. my dry fly only freinds have gone into deep depression .. me, I fish anything and everything .. Dave O and I went out in blizzard planing on a short fish ... it turned out to be beautiful, peacefull and big fluffy snow flakes added to the silence on the water .. Fish were caught , dogs swam... The snow was 4 inches deeper when Dave and I plodded back to the truck.. this is the longest coldest , whitest winter I have seen down south here in the Pass. If the weather stays the same count on little Black stones and midges ... Suzy and I are OUT of HERE ! ..West coast steelhead are calling us .. hope we get there before the blossoms fall off the fruit trees ..G##*&!!!-W*#!!&!!-M?!!-- Global Warming..the Crowsnest Cafe' and Fly Shop is CLOSED for the WEEK ....

Too exhausted from snow shoveling to write...but now the slow melt is on,small black stones are out,(as well as a rare golden)the Crow remains low ,and clear.Yes spring is here. Still lots of snow in the mountains ,so we must hope for a long and consistent run-off....Skwallas should be on show on the Oldman soon...So don't forget to renew your licence and check out below highway 22 on the oldman...Crow is open for fishing from downstream of East Hillcrest bridge to the top of Lundbrek Falls,and downstream of highway 3. Lots of new patterns at the shop...all the best to everyone.Susan
