Backpacked in and spent the night on the far side of the lake. Great fishing. Was with 3 others and caught a collective 20+ nice sized cutthroat and one Brooke trout. Nice rope swing if you are the adventurous type! Trail was rather rough due to horses using the trail when it was wet. Overall an enjoyable trip.

Backpacked in to Bailey Lake and camped for two nights. Trail head is found by traveling from Alpine WY up the Greys River Road to the Little Greys turn off. Travel to McCain Meadow and then to the trail head which is just prior to waterdog lake where the road ends. Saw deer, moose (early am, and during the night), eagle, osprey, ducks and ducklings, muskrat, and many wild flowers. Caught fish for lunch which always beats packed in foods!
