Bow River in July
A few years ago I attended a July professional meeting in Bannf. The Bow R. and surroundings is so beautiful it was necessary to schedule a float trip. Not much opportunity to wade.
Landed whitefish, brookies, and browns. My guide (Jeff Perodeau) was gifted and patient. He put me on several nice browns in the 17 to 20 inch range. I have caught more and larger trout but have seldom fished an more beautiful surroundings except every day spent in the GSMNP.
