Lundy Lake Kayak, Canoe, SUP & Kayak Fishing Information

Lundy Lake Kayaking Lundy Lake lies nestled between two jagged mountains in a deep canyon a short distance north of June Lake in the Toiyabe National Forest, fourteen miles west off of Interstate 395 on Lundy Lake Road. Massive mountain peaks and a dense forest reflect a tapestry of color onto the still water of this pristine alpine lake.

The moment I saw Lundy Lake, I knew I had found a paddler’s paradise. If you are in search of a small secluded lake encompassed by inspiring scenery on all sides, where chances are you will have the entire lake to yourself, then this is the perfect lake for you. It is an short, easy paddle, but well worthwhile for all levels of paddlers. Lundy Lake is located in a remote region, so I would recommend paddling this lake with a friend. And don’t forget to bring your camera!

There are an abundance of scenic trails in the area. If you  hike along the north shore of Lundy Lake, you'll reach the Lundy Lake Resort and boat launch. The road from here on is dirt, and gets pretty narrow in places, but its fine for two wheel drive vehicles. Once you get past the private campsites there's an Inyo Nat Forest sign and a no camping sign.

The road ends in a one-way loop around an outhouse at the Lundy Canyon Trailhead, where there are a few small campsites with picnic tables tucked into the trees with plenty of parking. There's no visibility of the lake due to the trees and brush.

The kayak angling opportunities at Lundy Lake are very rewarding. The species of fish taken here consists of rainbow, brown, and brook trout. The lake is stocked yearly with 30,000 catchable rainbows, and 3,600 subcatchable brown trout by the Department of Fish and Game.
