Trails to Fishing Lakes
« on: June 06, 2019, 09:27:46 PM »

Ok guys, looking for your expertise

I want to get out and explore some lakes to fish in the hills/mountains but do some trails to get there..... I will take all suggestions as me and a buddy want to get out in the next week or two. Can you give me some lake names, trails to lakes and or streams to fish and do a day trip?

About 4 years ago, Bigsquat, WJChris and I went up to Snake Lake Trail. We camped at Gold lake, and Bob brought his boat. We actually only fished Gold Lake, but Snake Lake Trail does take to Snake Lake. So I don't know if there's any fish in there or not.

Here's the trip report:

There's also Hell hole reservoir. The last time we were there, there really wasn't much of a lake left. But I'm sure it's plenty full now. The trail is pretty tough, but short. And you should be able fish at the end of the trail. Yhere's also a small little campground on the paved road to the dam. I'm sure you can fish near the dam also. I've never fished there, but I've seen a lot of people doing it.

Here's some pics from back in 2015 when the lake was all dried up.

 I don't know of anywhere out by you. But when you have the Sierra's almost in your back yard, you get spoiled.

Bowman or any of the other lakes up that way, but really those are all going to be quite a ways for a day trip from where you are.

I usually don't fish the lakes around here in the summer. I like to troll but hate down riggers. I fish loon , Icehouse  may, June mostly, the fish are on top and easy pickins Collins lake in the spring if the waters not muddy. Also I've fished loon in oct and have done ok. Also bullards bar for bass
