Has anyone been up to blue lakes lately. I'm planning on taking my boys up there in a couple of weeks. Was wondering how the fishing was and what's working. Also wondering how full the campgrounds are. We don't have reservations but it looks like there are a lot of first come - first serve spots available. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Fished Blue lakes today the fish in Lower Blue are across from
the campground by the Big rock !! Plenty of 10-12 inch planters !! Tried the dam first not even a nibble but it was early afternoon on a beautiful day
Looked like there were open campsites it was very quiet there

That sounds great. Taking my two young sons. They will be thrilled to catch some fish. Did you fish upper Blue Lake any?

Never fished Blue Lakes but will be around there next week. I understand that the launches are dirt. I have a 21' Blue Water. Too much boat for the unimproved launch?

Way too much. Tin cans only. Give Caples a try.

CCThanks for the info. I figured as much. Gonna fish Caples and Silver. Hoping for better luck than past few years.
