Backpacked to lower Slate with bro and a friend.10 miles 1-way.Nice cuttys on drys(yellow or orange humpys,black ant,royal coachman,etc.) and some on nymphs(orange asher when the wings fell off!).

Here's one I caught at the inlet:


My bro with a nice one:


Hiked to Upper Slate,another mile and 1000 ft elevation gain.Tons of brookys but largest was 12 inches.We each caught 30-40 on drys. Its a blast sight-fishing!

Heres the upper lake:

Great looking fish Slayer... You are the man I did a little hiking this weekend above 10,000 ft and I was sucking wind like you would not belive, I couldnt even imagine doing a 10 mile trek yet.

gonna have to add that to my "places i gotta go" list might have to wait till next year not shure im ready for a 10 miler one way it would take me 2 days to get it and 2 days to get out and from the looks of it i'd want a few days to fish

Hey RK,IMO there are lakes with better bang for the buck!The square tops has as good or better fish and its a 45 min. walk.And the lake above Breckenridge had cuttys all bigger than the brookys up here.About a 2 hr walk.It was a neat area but wont prolly ever go back cause the fish just arent that big.
