This high elevation lake is located on top of Mount Woodside, and the drive up offers some amazing views of the valley. This lake is stocked several times a year with aggressive, scrappy fighting rainbows. There is shore fishing available along the
trail that circles the lake but the best fishing is from a float tube. This lake is high enough that it doesn't suffer from the summer doldrums and is fishable throughout the year. Gear fisherman can bottom fish with power eggs of float with worms with success,
and fly-fisherman can use dry flies such as an adams or dragonfly and wet flies like leeches, Doc Spratleys, or dragon nymphs can easily produce fish.
