Leighton Lake Stats
Leighton Lake is another beautiful Kamloops lake, of which I have enjoyed fishing for the famous Kamloops Trout since 1970. Leighton Lake receives the majority of its water from the falls which cascade down from Tunkwa Lake through out the spring and most of the summer months. Leighton lake has no fishing regulations in place, and ice fishing is allowed.
In addition to the great fishing and hunting you can do the following:
Golfing, whitewater rafting on the Thompson River, wine tours in Kelowna, Hell's Gate Tourist Attraction on the Thompson River, the Merrit Mountain Music Festival, canoe and kayak on the many lakes in the area, dirt biking/ATV riding outside of the resort and provincial park area, ATV tours at close by Mile High Resort, Copper Mine Tour, Logan Lake Museum and plenty of relaxing on the shores of Tunkwa Lake.
Area Data
Tunkwa Provincial Park contains two large, man-made trout-fishing lakes, Tunkwa and Leighton, with campgrounds located on both lakes. Tunkwa is listed in the top 10 provincial rainbow trout fisheries. This park protects mid elevation grasslands, forests, lakes and wetlands including bogs and ponds. This is a year-round recreation area, noted for camping, hunting, horseback riding, wildlife viewing, fishing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.
