    Is this area in the Sierras? There is a Saddlebags Lake in the Winds, and they hold reported to hold nice brookies, but they are above 11000' and fairly remote (about a 12 mile hike in).

    This is the saddlebags in the Sierra's it is just to the east of Yosemite on the Tioga pass. It is gorgeous, I just didn't think it really felt like the kind quintessential high altitude lake.

    Take the water taxi across Saddlebag Lake(CA) and walk into the 20 Lakes Basin, it feels more remote and is an easy walk. There's a lot of good fishing back there. The taxi saves time and distance and is well worth the small fee. milt.
