Leman Lake

Rating: 3 of 5
Species: Cutthroat Trout
Last Visited: 2011


Leman Lake Banff Alberta

Leman Lake is located in the south end of Banff National Park. This is a gem of a lake with clear blue waters. Shore access is more difficult due to the bush surrounding the lake. The lake level was high on my visit and if it were too drop enough access would be better around the shoreline. There are several ways to get to Leman Lake. The shortest from Alberta side is via Burstall Pass. There is a backcountry campground about 1km away.

Leman Lake Cutthroat Trout

In the past the fish for large cutthroat trout in Leman Lake was good. In my experience the size of these fish ranged from 14" to 19". They could often be seen cruising in the clear waters. There didn't seem to be many fish in this lake however which could be why fishing was slow. On my last trip i didn't catch a thing. I only saw one jump after several hours of fishing with no bites. I hope the fishing quality improves here but it doesn't look good.
