Beauty days continue ! Crowsnest in excellent shape as run off is slow. Oldman above the dam coloured with a bit of height, below the dam viz is approx 21/2 ft. Summit hasn't turned over yet, probably this week. Our southern lakes are performing well..looks like a great weekend is ahead..Susan

Spring continues thru the Easter weekend...water levels are up, but only by a few inches, viz on the Crow about 2 feet. Tho not high, I have seen some Redds so please be careful when crossing..nothing worse than a hooped Redd and punched knee at the same time! Lower Oldman also higher by about 4 inches, running off colour/ green...still both seem to be ok as far as feeding trout! Yeah!...all lakes here are open of ice...I haven't fished Lee or Beauvais, and not yet certain about Beaver mines, but the wee bit of open water at Summit proved worthwhile ( B.C. border)...30-50% off lots of Patagonia wear and Airflo Velocity lines right now at the shop....Happy Easter to all...fishin time.
