Southwestern Alberta

Fishing to the south of us has been fishing quite similar to the southern BC streams. Most of the rivers have now come to a close for the remainder of the season with the exception of the Crowsnest and the Oldman (from Oldman Reservoir dam downstream to Sec. Rd. 509). Both are at good levels and visibility seems to be in tip-top shape. Fishing has shifted to winter fishing tactics, so getting flies deep is the key to success. Don’t forget that if there happens to be a chinook that it could offer some good midge fishing on top.
