Brainard is a nice hike. May need skis - but doubt it.

The brooks in there won't get much above 12 or 13" if even that though. The higher lakes have bigger brooks though - but are artificials only.

its national forest? I know the stream has regs but the long lake and all I thought was open?

Yeah all the lakes above Brainard (Long, Blue, Isabell, etc...) are all FLO (Fly Lure Only) waters. They have other regs on the streams, I know parts of them are closed to fishing during certain dates (probably for spawning..)
