I went fishing up Waterton canyon yesterday...first time. My wife and I walked up the canyon about 2 miles and saw lots of wildlife..big horn sheep, deer, geese, etc. I fished using a SJ worm and golden stone dropper. Got several small hits on the stone.

Is the fishing better the farther up the canyon.? Regardless, the scenery was great, my wife loved seeing "what I do" when fishing. We had a delightful day.

I've fished the lower 2 miles and did pretty well, but was wondering too if the fly/lure section is good and is there less pressure farther up. I ride my bike up so the distance isn't an issue, but is it worth it? O0

I'm coming up with a mathematical formula for the fishing pressure vs. distance up waterton. It seems that the section just past the pipeline gets pounded so much that the pressure is inversely proportional to the distance in from that hole. In other words, if you go twice the distance from the pipeline, you get 1/2 the pressure. Is the fishing twice as good? I'm not so sure. That stretch is fairly productive, so it must be regularly stocked. I think upstream you don't have necessarily more fish, just bigger ones. Then again, I'm too lazy to go up all six miles, so I can't be 100% sure about that.
