The lake is stocked with rainbow trout and eastern brook trout. The fishing here is abundant and challenging.

Maligne Lake guided fishing tours include transportation to and from all Jasper hotels and all necessary equipment for a day of fishing with a professional, licensed guide.

All boats are fully equipped with everything you’ll need, including rods, reels, tackle and modern fish tracking equipment to help locate the fish. Mountain Park fishing licenses are available at the historic Curly Phillips Boathouse.

The wildfire in the Verdant Creek area of Kootenay National Park continues to burn since first being detected on Saturday, July 15, 2017. Parks Canada staff are actively managing the fire; however, smoke is affecting air quality and reduced visibility in some areas of Banff National Park.
At this time, there are no impacts or disruptions to our operations.

Those with respiratory conditions should take precaution when visiting the area while smoke advisories are in place.

We are working closely with our partners to monitor and stay informed about the wildfire to ensure that we have the most up-to-date information.
