A lot of people like to keep good high-country lakes secret. I usually share information freely unless I think the lake is too small to support pressure. Thus I can't tell you about my favorite lake as it is quite small and shallow. I only go about once every two years...it does, however, have surprisingly big fish in it and a maintained trail as well. But it is a long and steep hike and since it is not as stunning as surrounding lakes it gets very few visitors. What's my point you ask? Look for these types of lakes, ones that are overshadowed by others that are nearby, have better views, better access, etc. They will draw the typical hiker in and you can walk on past to a less visited, less stunning location that offers a better overall fishing experience.
