There is very little access to the river with all the private land lining the banks, not too sure about access to the lake other than at the dam. Record brown came out of there a couple years ago and I'd venture a guess that anyone with any knowledge of that lake will be very tight lipped. I've only fished the river with limited success.

Are you talking about Waterton Lakes, or Waterton Reservoir? Two different places. It is quite common that the Lakes don't freeze up. But usually the Reservoir is frozen all winter.

Almost what I was thinking, as most of the hotels there are just meters from the lakes, I could see them getting those confused.
