You sure those weren't cutties? To the best of my knowledge they haven't stocked rainbows in years and they don't spawn in that lake. Could be wrong but that would be interesting if they were rainbows

Was there last thursday. No flood water by the outflow, only 6 inches of crusty snow, nice walking.
Very slow, only marked 4 fish from 730 -2:00. I was between 70-80 ft of water, all fish marked and my only one on came between 35-45 ft mark.

The lower lake had a wild population of rainbows i think they spawn in Boulton creek.
My uncle fishes the Kananaskis lakes a couple times a week and gets a few rainbows a year of all sizes from the lower lake.

Rainbow do spawn in Boulton Creek, which is why there are still a few rainbows in LKL, even though they haven't been stocked there for over 25 years.
