Not going to bug you about "secret lake" , I think I know anyway. However, Have you ever fished Blue lakes, either upper or lower and what do you think? I know their camp grounds can get a "little" congested comparatively speaking, but I've never bothered with them because of that fact. At least that's what I've heard. Are they worth the trek or should I keep to smaller less known sites. This is for next year. Normally I fish south of Bridgeport. Occasionally, I'll go above Tahoe or over to Nev. My time in God's country is done for the year. Now, I gotta go back to the damn Halibut... but, they sure do taste good...
Hope you keep pullin' em in till the freeze...
I fished and camped at Lower Blue Lake several times late this summer, the fishing was pretty good, especially in the late afternoon. We had 20+ fish days every afternoon until it got too dark to fish. We were able to camp right next to the lake too which made it nice and easy to fish. The only downside to the campsite is there are no bear boxes to lock your food and ice chests in. A bear or bears came into one camp and set two vehicle alarms off, the campers left early the next morning, it may have been too much "nature" for them. I heard bears in our camp just about every night after going to bed but if you keep a clean camp you should be ok.
I am still hitting the high country but after this weekend I may not be able to get into the high country lakes until next year's ice out.
here are a few pics of Lower Blue Lakes:
