Besides great fishing the vistas here are unreal! I would recommend packing a picnic lunch to really enjoy this jewel.

|This is a bit of a trek but the hardy angler will be rewarded with good fishing and spectacular scenery! Cutthroat are abundant at both the upper (eastern) end of the lake and the lower section of the creek. Spinners work well in the lake but anglers who can match the hatch will be rewarded even more!|
