The fish are plentiful at Muncho Lake this summer, the weekend I went camping up there in June we caught between 10 and 15. You can fish on the lake all over, right of the shore or out in middle. The lodge sells tackle if you run out or forgot to bring extras.
If you want to get even more adventurous then fishing on the grand Muncho Lake, you could take a fly-in fishing trip at the Northern Rockies Lodge. There are over 70 little lakes and streams to choose from. You can catch Walleye, Northern Pike, Lake Trout, Arctic Grayling, Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden. They do day trips as well as overnight packages to their outpost log cabins.
To top off all the excitement of catching fish be sure to actually keep one or two and have them for dinner. They taste awesome just cooked in tin foil over the fire, throw some butter, lemon, onion, salt & pepper inside and it's ready to go. Nice and easy as well as delicious!
Happy fishing travellers, and if you are headed up the Alaska Highway be sure to make a stop at Muncho Lake, even if it's only for a few hours. It's gorgeous and well worth the stop.
