Default Re: Banff - Bow River in February

Dude, you do know it's winter here right? I don't think you'll find any open water around Banff, it should be frozen solid. However, if you can make it downstream of highway 22X in Calgary on a day when the day time temp is above 4c and the night before didn't drop below -5c, you'll be able to fish the Bow for some trophy trout. If there are ice chunks, they'll burn off by the afternoon letting you get your presentation down. A good access point is Policeman Flats (head downstream).

Cheers,
Doc
