Well looks like warmer weather is coming to the Crowsnest this week...Finally. The weekend should bring wider swaths of open water along the Crow. Please use caution as the banks are icy, trout are spooked and settling in after ice up, and there may be the chance of ice jams. Great new nymph and steamer patterns in the shop, with dozen discounts still on. Our weekly SALE is 30% off fly lines, weight forward and double taper. Please call if you'd like something set aside. 403-563-8510. Hardy does it again with exceptional new rods at great prices. These guys never cease to amaze! Check out the new Zephrus and Glass...too sweet! The shop is open Wednesday thru Sunday from 8-5...hoping to be able to shovel in by tomorrow! Thanks, Susan

Great Summer!! Waters were low , clear and full of hungry trout. The Cutties were keyed in and continued hammering dries...big PMD  and Green Drake hatches on The Oldman , Crowsnest and Castle. The finicky Crow Rainbows were in a generous mood, and continue to be eager. We've been fortunate to have the cloudy days and intermittant rains keeping the  water temperatures necessary for happy trout. Thanks to Sam Grenier and Adam Chiasson for the great assistance, guiding and shop talking! Blue wing olive time is fast approaching. Shop hours remain 8-5 7 days. All the best....check www.crowsnestcafeandflyshop.ca for facebook daily info and shop SALES.
