I saw alot of great spots to fly fish. It's a beautiful creek with lots of pocket water, fast boulder water and calm stretches. The lake itself is very pretty, set amongst towering peaks. If you wait till fall, the place is covered with aspen, so bursts of yellow are everywhere. There is very little in the way of camping at the lake. Even in late fall, the meadow is very wet ( you will get your shoes soaked) One side of the lake is exposed wet meadow, the other is steep and rocky, with only a few very small sites cut into the rocky slope. It's best to find a spot along the creek before you get to the lake. I didn't fish much, but saw trout in the creek. Hope this helps !
I appreciate your reply.We will probably end up hiking to the lake in one day, hopefully not two, but that may be a possibility. taking your advice, we will probably camp just before the lake, before the inlet. Leavitt meadows may also be a good option.
