Running Rain Lake

Rating: 2 of 5
Species: Cutthroat Trout

Running Rain Lake Alberta

Running Rain Lake is accessed from an easy trail from the roadside pull off. There are minor creek crossings on the way but nothing deep. Sometimes a tree crossing exists. The lake itself seems more like pond and actually reminds me of Odlum Pond. The reason being is most of this lake is shallow with the exception of a small deep part at the far end.

While the cutthroat in this lake are present in larger numbers it was very hard lake to fish on both my visits. They really don't bite hard often spitting out the hook. Not only that but the fish don't seem to get very large in here so largest I caught was just less than 12". I find it suitable to show the picture of the juvenile above as there are lots of these. The fish in this lake are naturally reproducing so they are of all sizes. They updated the regulations from 40cm to 30cm as there probably wasn't anything 40cm in present anyway.
