General Description

Lewiston Lake

Lewiston Lake
Lewiston Lake is a scenic, quiet canoe lake known to be one of the West's premier fly fishing lakes. An abundance of aquatic life, as a result of plant and riverbed habitat along with water temperatures, has produced healthy populations of rainbow, brown and brook trout. In addition to being an excellent fly fishing lake, it is also a good lake for float tube. Many anglers find success in the upper lake where the trout reach 20+ inches. Trollers and bait anglers also find success, but are limited to 10 mph. The serene cold waters and surrounding mountainous terrain make Lewiston Lake a great place for viewing wildlife. For individuals with physical impairments, the boat ramp at Pine Cove provides quality wheelchair fishing access with decks build out over prime trout fishing water.
