I've been targeting this area for years. These pictures are making want to get the ball rolling. Great trip. What gear did you use for the brookies?

the brookies? well, I just used some small 1/8 oz spinners with one of the barbs on the
treble hook cut off. I only fished in the lower 3 lakes, not in the upper basin.
there are small goldens up there but you would most likely need a flyrod to drop a fly in front
of there noses, very skittish fish (&small) in those shallow ponds. I'm not sure
if the 3 larger glacial ponds hold fish.

Nevadasmith-
Great TR on Granite Park! I hope to visit somewhere in this near vicinity next
summer (ie: Humphrey Basin or Honeymoon Lk). Beautiful shots and that
shot of the brookies in the frying pan made me smile! Thanks for Sharing!

I re sized some of the photos using [rimg] so that the right side of photo is no longer chopped off
much better.
