Klinger Lake is a lake located just 14 km from Houston. Fishermen will find a variety of fish including rainbow trout and eastern brook trout. Whether you’re baitcasting, spinning, fly fishing or ice fishing your chances of getting a bite here are good. Klinger is a popular place for fishing all year round and attracts many people during the winter.

The trail from the Wallcott is usually well packed from snow machine traffic to allow for a short 200 metre walk from the road to the lake. The trail follows along the outside of a log fence. The fenced area is crown land that is being leased for a grazing permit.

During summer months the wide trail allows for canoes and other small boats to be carried down to the lake. The walking loop trail is a nice and easy stroll that follows the lake shore and winds through a vibrant Aspen Forest.

The lake is non-motorized but electric motors can be used.

Site Includes:
picnic table
fire pit
room for tenting.
canoe access to Lake

Please remember to check with the local fishing regulations to ensure the lake is open to the public, and that you have the necessary fishing license. 

There are no directional or trail head signs for this site, use your map and GPS.
