I took my boat up there about 5 years ago for a three day stay and ended up parking it by my rental cabin and fishing from shore. Haven't brought the boat back since, but always manage to get up there a few times each year to fish from the bank. It is an excellent lake to fish from a kayak, or float tube. As with most Sierra lakes/reservoirs, the launch ramp becomes dicey or unusable in the fall due to dropping water levels.
