Allen Lake Professional Review and Guide

"Anglers seeking large arctic grayling must visit Allen Lake. Grayling over a pound are reported. A few big brook trout inhabit this lake too. You won’t catch a lot of fish at Allen Lake, but what you do catch will be sizable. Fishing pressure is light here, so the fish have a chance to grow large.

Allen Lake was named in honor of Floyd Allen, a ranger who was killed by lightning while on duty. A wooden monument still stands as a solemn reminder of the man and the awesome powers of nature. We arrived at Allen Lake on August 26—the same day of the year that Mr. Allen met his fate in 1938. The coincidence left us wondering how he might have looked, and how isolated the High Uintas were back in 1938. We checked the sky for storm clouds."
