    That’s a large rainbow that I would say is a male based on the large/long head. Killing a fish that you can’t ID is as bad as poaching as far as I’m concerned. Lucky for you it’s not a closed species that you’re posting on the net!

    Cheers!

    I said "strain" not "species" !!!! You should learn the difference yourself!

    I know that it was a rainbow for 100% certain, and I read the regs so I knew 100% it was a legal fish, so tone down your accusations!

    Can anyone help me with strain?

    Mabel Lake isn’t stocked, they’re wild strain Shuswap/South Thompson fish that migrate throughout the Shuswap system (Shu, Mara, Mabel)

    Cheers!

    No problem, thought it might help discription wise. Probably though only a few strains to pick from.?Not an expert though.

    If it's in an unstocked lake it is that lakes natural fish genetics or "strain".

    Lakes that are stocked by the ffsbc are stocked with fish from a captive brood stock that have originally come from specific lakes or system which is what they derive the name of that strain from, be it blackwater, pennask, Fraser valley, horsefly etc.
