I once fished this river about 20 years ago! there were a ton of sockeye in the river around bowron lake! And springs as well i had a blast with single eggs under a float with a trout rod! Hooked lots of sox and springs as well as huge rainbows! Then a huge grizzly bear came along and my fun was over for the day! What huge animals! I had to leave my 2, 3-4 lb rainbows on the beach because the griz was to close for me to grab em! When i came back the trout were gone with fresh bear tracks all around where the trout were lying! My first run in with a griz and it was a big one! I hope to go back there one day and fish it again beautiful country up there!
You bet CK the Bowron has a good number of them critters running arround out there. There is some real big ones with bad attitudes, I have had a few days shut down early because I was being barked at by a black bear and of course if I even see a griz I usually leave the area asap.
