I have fished most of those lakes in that area (there are severaL) I have tried it years ago only to be told by a dwr officer it has a low oxigen content and fish do not survive, (no stocking) and I can say I have never saw a fish even rise in there. Oddly enough however nearby snow lake (about a mile south and very similar looking produces exccelant fishing. About a mile south of snow lake there is a road that turns left off skyline ( by a water shed lake they don't stock for culinary water reasons) 3-4 miles down this road you will find a lake called blue or cove lake ( depending on the map you look at) It's usually great with a fly and bubble. The small , and I mean small ,stream in the canyon down to cove/blue can be fun for decent cuthroats, which will surprize you due to the small stream size. I love the area there. There are several other fishing holes in about a 10 mile radius of there
The road in requires 4 wheel drive. You could make it in 2 wheel drive but any rain ect... it would be a problem. It is steep rocky and rutty though , so no cars. pretty spot though, and a great place to take your kids as fishing is usually fast and furious with a fly and bubble.
Minnows? Nope. Shad? Not’a. Aquatic insects? Not even close. Go ahead fishin’ geeks, take the micrometer from out of your pocket-protector and start measuring. It won’t take you long to realize no two specimens in...
