Southeastern BC

The Elk and surrounding waters are really starting to turn on! Water visibility is looking real good and its flowing at about 22cms. Weather for the next two weeks looks pretty good with the aception of this coming weekend. But nonetheless, if you are out of ideas for fishing and want to make a bit of a road trip why not make it down to the Elk or one of its surrounding waters.

As far as it goes for bugs they're roughly the same as what you would be seeing in the Crowsnest area. If anything I would put a little bit more focus on the ants as they are always such a productive style for down in that neck of the woods. Now, when dealing with the bullies make sure that you are bringing the big ugly stuff. They have been hanging out in there usual spots for this time of the year, but have seemed to be getting more and more aggressive (as they are getting ready for spawn soon here) so why not try to poke the next fish of a lifetime.
