    Muir Lake is an easily accessible quality stillwater located a short drive west of Alberta’s capital city, Edmonton.  Muir Lake is a shallow fertile lake.  In addition to water boatman and backswimmers Muir has healthy populations of leeches, brook stickleback and chironomids.

    Muir Lake features seasonal closures, bait ban and reduced harvest regulations.  Historically known for producing quality fish Muir Lake suffered from periodic winterkills.  The Freshwater Fisheries Enhancement Society (FESA) was instrumental returning Muir Lake to its quality status.

    There are a number of fishermen that catch the odd trout without really understanding why a particular pattern or technique is successful. The Education Center at Muir Lake gives fishermen a better understanding of the relationships between food and  their imitations in order to make fishermen better anglers and have a greater appreciation for the needs of stewardship for the resource.
