Lac Le Jeune Stats
Situated on the Nicola Plateau, part of the Interior Plateau physiographic region, Lac Le Jeune is surrounded by hilly terrain, with mix of spruce, douglas fire and pine.
Lac Le Jeune lake has a speed restriction of 20km/h on the lake and its tributaries. Lac Le Jeune has a maximum depth of 88 feet and a mean depth of 32 feet. The elevation of Lac Le Jeune is 4,177 feet. The lake is stocked with rainbow trout. Lac Le Jeune also has a large, beautiful Provincial campsite with beach and swimming area, picnic area, with campsites with running water, barbeque pits, showers and boat launch facilities.
Lac Le Jeune was one of the practice lakes for the 1993 World Fly Fishing Championships held in Kamloops. Lac Le Jeune lake offers an excellent rainbow fishery, up to 3-4 pounds. Trolling, spinning gear are the most popular methods used here, however, the numerous shoals around the lake harbor much insect life, and fly fishers do very well throughout the season. I have fly fished Lac Le Jeune lake for many years including the smaller lake and the fishery is one of the best around Kamloops.
