Telling someone about a good pool at the end of a 4x4 rut a hundred miles from nowhere is one thing. Telling them about a good pool a block from your house is quite another. Nonetheless, some of the popular spots do show up on the fishing maps. There's the Zoo Hole, Carburn Park, Mallard Point, the CIL Hole, and Poplar Island. Mike Day, a friend and Bow River guide, once told me a story about fishing the Zoo Hole well after dark. The hole is, of course, just below the zoo Page 10 escarpment. As Mike blindly cast beneath a heavily-treed bank, he could hear the exotic birds screeching, the lions roaring.
Most of the rivers in this book drain mountainous terrain that receives ample snowfall each winter, and spring runoff generally lasts from mid-May to late June, muddying the rivers and rendering them unfishable. There are, however, notable exceptions, such as the fabulous June dry-fly fishing on the Crowsnest and North Raven rivers. By July, the other rivers and creeks will be clear as well (barring heavy rains), and this is a prime flyfishing month in southern Alberta, with good hatches of mayflies, caddisflies, and stoneflies.
Personally, I practice catchand-release ninety-nine percent of the time, and though I do occasionally kill a small trout or two for the frying pan, you couldn't pay me to eat a trout from the lower Bow (remember the treated sewage). Places to Stay and Eat There are dozens of hotels, motels, and private and provincial campgrounds in and around Calgary. The same goes for good restaurants. Your best bet is to contact the Calgary Convention & Visitors Bureau (237 8th Ave. , Canada, T2G 0K8; 800-661-1678 or 403-263-8510 in-province).
