Anybody fish the alpine lakes in the High Uintas?
Kind of a new discovery for my family, but I can see us spending a LOT of time throughout there. We did a little exploratory trip recently just to feel it out, but I did sneak in about a dozen casts walking the Mirror Lake shoreline (10,200 FASL).
Even managed a little planter Tiger before a pine tree swallowed up my Peacock Bugger.
Packing the waders (next time) would make all the difference in the world.
The information I gathered claims 600+ alpine lakes and streams with Brook, Rainbow, Tiger, and Cutthroat Trout to be found as well as Arctic Grayling in a few lakes. Golden Trout (from Wyoming) are back in the mix as well according to the DWR officer I spoke to at the Outdoor Show earlier this year. I was just curious if anyone else here fished the area and cared to share some tips, stories, etc.
Here's a link to some of the trails and fishing opportunities: High Uintas
Lots of other reasons to spend time there as well (of course).
Tight lines, and happy summer!
