Alpine Lakes

Fly Fishing Alpine Lakes

The majestic Sierra Nevada Mountain range contains an endless supply of alpine lakes. These high mountain lakes provide an amazing backdrop of soaring pines, dramatic peaks, crystal clear water and trout that readily take flies. Access can range from an easy drive up, short hikes, or for the adventurists, backpacking for as far as you want to walk into a designated wilderness area. There are many different strains of trout in the Sierra’s such as Golden, Rainbow, Brown, Brook, Cutthroat and the occasional Tiger trout.
