The Lake itself sits at 8,000 feet and is frozen nearly half the year, the other half is almost guaranteed to be good. A small like in size its perfect for float tubing but can be easily accessed from shore. Small vibrant rainbow trout can be caught almost always on dries unless the wind is up. Nymphs and small streamer will always get the job done.
