Lee Lake is a front-country recreation destination popular among locals, especially before the rivers open for angling in mid-June. The surrounding foothills ranch country sits beautifully against a backdrop of sharply rising Rocky Mountains.
Access to Lake or RiverPaved Road
Stocked rainbow trout provide steady work for spincasters fishing from shore or from boats. Fly fishing is also popular but difficult from shore because of close vegetation and steep banks.
A 5 km/h speed limit for power boats keeps the surface calm for paddlers.
