Great Trout spot, been there 5 times in June/July. Caught about 6) 8-10" rainbow with a handful of bits. Was using a 8g Spinner (wal-mart). Lots of shore spots to choose from. Only down fall, some walking and on the way out have to climb a pretty steep hill. In my opinion worth it. Shout out to The Fishing Doctors Adventures https://youtu.be/ZwK8i3myClY without him wouldn't have found this gem -TheFishinBroz -K

Watch where you walk. I saw a guy taking a dump by the walking trail on the south side of the lake.

Stock report says no fish stocked for 2018. I agree with BigFish, if you bring it down the hill take it with you back up the hill. I have a feeling that people on this site are not the ones leaving the mess. Leduc was stocked with 2400 this year.

Fished in the float tube for 3 hours, had 6 bites. Not much rising, the lake was dead tonight. The biggest fish I saw rise was 10". To say it was slow was an understatement. I fished a sink tip, tried probably 15 different types. Nothing seemed to work. They were rising, taking a caddis like fly size about 28. But with little rising, I didn't bother trying to dry fly. Shore anglers weren't doing any better.

Belly boats and fly rods today. Started early and fished whole morning. Lots of fish, nothing bigger than 14" though. But very good action. Fish were taking to black leech type flies or green dragon flies. A good day of fishing.

Great fishing next to the weed bed.
