    +1 on this. I used to fish Loon Lake as a kid almost every summer. I've been away for a while so I can't speak to the current conditions. But I can't wait to get back.

    I tried to get to Bowman Lake off HWY 20 but ran into a collapsed bridge at what I believe was just before getting there. I'm new to the area so was really just exploring. Ended up fishing Fuller Lake. I only caught 4 over a couple of hours but one was a nice 14 inch Brown. Some others were limiting out with 8 inch rainbows.

    Anyway, there are several lakes up in that area and I met a father/son who were backpacking in the area. Might be worth a shot.

    When I was in High School... I worked/lived in Yosemite for the summer. One of my favorite hiking/fishing trips was Hatch Hatchie Reservoir. If I remember... it was about an 8 mile hike. It was pretty steep but it was a switchback trail. Because of the bears... we had to hang our food. It was an awesome trip and the fishing was unbelievable. Good Luck...

    Good fishing lakes to backpack?

    Hey there a couple of buddies and I are trying to backpack to a good trout fishing lake in California. The problem is we got so much snow this yr that most places are still inaccessible. We are trying to find a spot with a couple lakes connected or close together. Preferably something 4+ miles so it's not too crowded. Thanks guys.
