Crowsnest River, Alberta

The sustained pressure results in a very technical fishery which is evidenced by the presence of many highly-spookable Rainbow Trout.

Alpine Lake

Jackson, You don't understand - this is dry fly fishing that will haunt you!!
The above quotation is from my friend Sam (whom we'll be camping with) while he tries to explain how salvageable this weekend will really be. We've already had some great fishing this season so I'm somewhat skeptical about this being that much better.....
