Here's a couple cell phone pictures from an alpine lake I hiked into on Saturday. It's in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. Hadn't been into this lake for a few years and there has been some changes. If you've hiked into this lake you should be able to identify it from the pics. I'm looking for an update. Feel free to pm me if you been there or you have an update. From the tracks it looks like someone has been in there this year. My report: the initial stretch was in good shape. There is no real trail but someone has flagged the brush for the first mile or so. The second half was a lot of thick brush, Devil's club, alder, etc up to the base of the falls (typical west Cascade brush hump). The last part up the cliff was a tough climb. I didn't go up the usual way as I didn't want to risk a fall while hiking alone. I went way to the left and noticed that someone has run a rope down the avalanche chute/stream bed that cuts down the cliff. The rope didn't help much and it was still a brutal climb. Some snow patches still at the lake. Lots of chironomids hatching, a few callibaetis coming off. No sign of fish. No rises, no fish spotted from the cliffs. I fished from my raft around the edge of the lake for about three hours without a touch. I know this lake doesn't recieve a lot of stocked fish and natural spawning is minimal - thus the big fish (the access also limits pressure). Anyone caught anything here recently? Anyone planning to put fish in? Any info appreciated. Also, if anyone is into hiking Alpine lakes this season and wants a partner, let me know. This was one hike I wouldn't recommend doing solo (realized that halfway up the cliff).
