But, some of the largest fish I've ever seen are here and that's definitely not a lie. My friend just pulled a 8.7 rainbow out of the Bow River couple of days ago. Totally wicked. I've never caught anything that size though but I am definitely gonna try to beat that...Purely for brag'n rights lol. My friend is Canadian and he's making fun of my "American" the battle is on! lol.
Nice to have someone else here from Alberta even if you aren't a native Albertan. As far as 30lb rainbows, you have to go one more province east to find those in Lake Diefenbaker, Saskatchewan.

Ya, the Bow River is said to have more trophy trout per mile than any other river in North America. Not sure how true that still is but there are some really big fish in it and lots of them for sure. Welcome to the board wolfcry.
