the goldeyes are around but no bugs are keeping them in a frenzy try nyphing with copper johns ,red pheasant tails (theos red pheasant) micro leeches ,even tiny blood worms with a bead head , all under an indicator....but they are riseing from 7:30 on at night so maby try using the hopper dropper technique. the smalest dry fly you got that wont sink carrying your nymphs is your best bet . making sure to stay on bottom is key i know it sucks seeing your indicator go down cause youve hooked bottom ...so you think...set your hook every chance you get . also let your nymphs swing to shore at the ends of your cast give your line a couple slow strips before you begin your next cast youll find the most of your hits on the swiing of your cast . usually before the swing i try to get a 15 -20 inch strike loop ready, if i feel the aggressive tap tap tap i lift my rod up fast and release the loop from my fingers and set the hook this is also a perffect way to set hooks for pike or walleye on the swing......the river is bound to get muddy any day now so get your goldeye while you can ....keep us posted and good luck!

Cuz , You must be from Calgary, nobody from Edmonton can give an offical report like that. Seems like we are all tight lipped around here this summer. Ya, I sure wish I had the time to fish the river before the melt comes , it's pretty late this year. Good on ya Cuz.......

Or else, some are too busy working their bums off... in these tough economic times... so no trout bumming this year. Meh.

 

P.S.
