The Colorado Greenback Cutts were something else, but this was my favorite trip and favorite fish...

Golden Trout Wilderness at 10,000 but we had to hike 8 miles in over 11,300 Cottonwood Pass in the Inyo Nat'l Forest

This is from my "best in a lifetime" day of fishing. Unnamed lake in Mt. Think I posted this somewhere else, but don't remember where. This is mid August, 2011. I don't think this was actually over 8,500 ft, but it FELT like it was "up there".

Lottsa BIG hungry cutts in here...

80% of my fishing is done on remote, high-altitude, backcountry lakes. I'm almost always solo so it's hard to photograph myself with both fish and scenery in the background. Here is one pic of me catching goldens at a lake high up in the Winds.

Highest, a High Sierra lake over 12,000, but that was before I stepped into the light, and I got striped as well. Lowest, 225 feet below sea level. milt.

Saddlebags off of tioga pass is 10500 or something like that, hardly counts though because it is crowded and doesn't feel remote. I think the highest backcountry experience I have had is hiking up to the upper Virginia lakes, they are around the same elevation but you really feel it.
