I was checking out a Topo earlier this year when I saw a lake that appeared to have all the attributes of a great fishing lake. It was off the beaten path, on the way to nowhere, hard to get to, appeared deep and seemed to have a relatively flat inlet stream= good for spawning.

Took me awhile to figure this one out. I looked at the photos, kinda figured what part of the Sierra this was in, checked the clue, then confirmed on the topo. Then I realized that someone had PM'd me about this place, so I went back and checked and found that it was in fact you. What a gorgeous spot--just as one would imagine it. Too bad about the fish. I had targeted this lake since the 80's or even earlier (even bought a stereo air photo pair to evaluate spawning potential in more detail)--may have thought about this the same time I thought of doing the Dumbbells back in the 70's, but unlike the Dumbbells I haven't gotten around to this place.
It certainly qualifies as one of the most remote spots in the Sierra, that's for sure.
