    Spent sunday afternoon up at Mt Baker, hiked to the chain lakes from artists point. Couldn't have asked for better weather, sunny and 60 degrees. Fishing wasn't so bad either, caught a ton of brook trout, which were all a first for me, first time catching brook trout. Only fished the first two lakes. I suppose I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves. Fish would hit just about anything, although, small adams seemed to work best.

    Was hard to start the hike back when the lake looked like this...

    Looks like you had a great trip! I fished there almost 25 years ago and had a blast. Thanks for bringing back the memories!
