A time-of-day angling restriction will be implemented on Wednesday July 26th at 2:00pm.
We are monitoring water flow and temperature across southern Alberta. The real-time water quality data at Carseland shows that thresholds have been reached to implement a time-of-day angling restriction:
Average daily water temperatures exceeded 20°C for three or more consecutive days
Flows in Bow River measured less than the 25th percentile for this time of year for four or more days.
Restrictions are in place from 2:00 pm to midnight (14:00 to 24:00) on July 26 for:
• All trout rivers and streams (flowing waters) in fisheries management zone ES1, including the Bow River downstream of Banff National Park to Bassano Dam (including this reservoir)
• St. Mary's River mainstem (including tributaries) below the St. Mary's Reservoir in fisheries management zone PP1
