Monday, June 27, 2016

Mid June 2016, warm and sunny. Two of us with maybe 30# packs for an overnight fishing effort. Took well over an hour in and we move well, the drop to the lake is fairly steep but welcome. Set up and then rounded the lake which has no trail so it takes quite a while, especially since we were trying to make fly rod casts. Saw few fish roll but that's it. Many, as in thousands of newts, also poly wogs. Some bugs on the water which seemed fairly warm. Surprised to see no wildlife on the way in or out. Out was a lot easier but you feel the downhill later on. Heard a few coyotes. Pretty lake, going back in colder weather to get the brookies on the spawn. Catch and release only. Thank you whomever left the two handy walking sticks at the trail head. Good to have on the downhill portions. Only one big deadfall blocking the patch about 25% in from the trailhead. Sunris highly recommended.
