Pointed the truck west on Wednesday and found some cool fishing. 1st lake fished like 5-7pm fish were hitting my tube in like 2 feet of water. I missed quite a few. Still got a dozen or so to 18".

2nd day rode the old dirty bike over a 12,000 ft pass to a trailhead.A short hike brought me to a lake that Lakefinder said "May" contain lake trout.1st cast with a brown/orange fuzzy grub and a 15" laker was gotten. Next 3 hours was fish on landed 40-50 macs and brookies, no size really, but a blast they hit aggressively. Also had both lakes to myself.

Nice report thanks for sharing, really healthy looking brook trout. All that effort really payed off and I bet it was nice and cool up there too.

Awesome Slayer! The dirt bike is an awesome idea! There is an alpine lake I have been meaning to hit for lake trout, but it is marked as a high clearance 4WD road to the trailhead. I am not 100 percent confident I should take my Volvo XC90 up there even though I have 9" clearance.

Seems like it might do some good keeping a few of those lakers! They look somewhat stunted. Overpopulation maybe? I don't have much experience with Lake trout in alpine lakes though, maybe they don't grow as big in the smaller lakes??
