Golden Stones are in the air!
Water clarity is not great but with so many bugs it would have been a crime not to fish a dry fly today! Visability was less than 2 feet and flows are still fast at 80 m³ per second ....But the Golden Stones in a size 6 dominated the skies with many crashing into the side of your head. The rowers needed to work hard to slow the boat and there is plenty of new structure and hazards to be aware of. I would have to rate the day as one of the better river openers in the past 6 years. Definitely worth a trip out Fernie and if you need a refresher then get one of our guides to take you on a float for the day!
