Urban Fly Fishing on the Red Deer River for Goldeye
Goldeye are plentiful in the Red Deer River! They are also lots of fun to catch with a fly rod. Nymphing can be effective but they are a hoot with a dry fly. The Red Deer River is coming into shape thanks to a reduced flow at the moment. As the visibility improves, gold eye will be after all the classic mayflies and stones that hatch on the Red Deer River. Goldeye are great scrappy fish! They jump and pull quite hard! There are so many spots to find Goldeye on the Red Deer River. Get a fly rod and go exploring along the bike trails. The spot we fished was a 5 minute walk from our house. Great fun! My daughter, son-in-law and Karen had a great time.
