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 and 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.
