Arnica Lake is located on a bit of a hike from hi-way 93 in Banff National Park. The lake is a nice green and blue and gets fairly deep close to shore. The water is clear and often you can see fish cruising the shoreline.
I found the Cutties in this lake to be pretty aggressive on my visit. I caught several fish in no time. There was some sort of action on most casts. The largest I caught was 15" with most ranging in 13" territory. Some of the fish were nicely colored like the one above with a bright pink belly.
