Lower Bow River Float Trips- Calgary Floating the Bow River is one of the most productive ways to fish this majestic river. The beautiful BLUE RIBBON section of the bow river flows through Calgary and south/east. The Bow River boasts the largest river born trout in the entire world. Chasing wild trout, Rainbows and Browns, where our average fish is 18-22". There is different launches within the city where we can launch our boats and float through the city, or float from the city outwards of Calgary. When floating the river we get to see much more of the river and pass a lot of prime runs, which most of them you can not access from foot. We will stop along the way and fish some of our favorite spots. We will fish many techniques varying from big meaty streamers to drifting nymphs, and when the time is right there is nothing greater than the visual aspect of casting dries to rising fish.
