Reducing the Risk of Spreading Whirling Disease

Reducing the Risk of Spreading Whirling Disease
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency confirmed whirling disease, a fish disease that affects salmonoids, in Johnson Lake in Banff National Park.
Anglers, boaters and recreational water users can help reduce the risk of spreading whirling disease. It can be transmitted through equipment used for swimming, paddling, boating, water pumping, and fishing, or through infected fish and fish parts. Never move live fish from one body of water to another (that is illegal in Alberta).
Please ensure that you clean and dry all equipment that came into contact with water and eliminate all water from equipment before transporting.
Thank you - LBHA

New Group Limits

Due to issues we have had with large groups in the park, the rules have been revised in that area.

The maximum size for a group in the Niven area is 200 guests per booking.

The maximum size for a group outside of the Niven area is 25 guests per booking.

As a side note, we reserve the right to cut off bookings on certain days if the number of group guests reach a high number.

Thank you!

Brown Trout - Do Not Keep if Caught

Hey anglers! We now have some brown trout in the lake. They are currently very small (6 to 7 inches), so absolutely DO NOT KEEP any of the brown trout you may catch. We want to give them a chance to grow a little.

As a general rule, we ask that you not keep any fish under 9 inches long. We strongly encourage catch and release fishing.

As a reminder:
-We allow barbless hooks ONLY.
-The daily limit of fish is two per person, to a maximum of four per household per day. The monthly limit is ten fish per household (including guests).
-No live bait shall be used.
-One rod with one hook per person.
-Fishing ends 15 minutes prior to closing.

Please make sure you have read ALL of the rules for fishing. These rules are available on our website, and in our office.
