I was up there last July and had a blast. The little isthmus in front of the campsite with the small bay/lagoon is great for fishing - you can see the fish swimming about. There is a good attentive ranger there so make sure you have your license. Stay away from fishing in the NO FISHING area - sounds silly to say but here were two guys 20 ft from the sign fishing away merrily. I was using all dry fly stuff and getting lots of action. There is good room to cast. Don't expect any Kamloops footballs - these 'bows are lean - I caught one at about 16-18 inces and the ranger said that was as big as they get. I kept two about 12 inches and fried them up - boy did they taste good! You can get a good idea of the general size and quantity of the fish there as soon as you enter the lake - the trail goes right over the outlet stream from the lake and the fish are stacked up there like crazy. The water is crystal so spend a few minutes just watching - its great! (Just don't fish here - its part of the no fishing area).
