My New Year's Resolution


Like many other high-mountain anglers, I maintain a list of lakes to visit. In fact, there's a long list and a short list. Well this year, my short list is very short and in fact, it has only one real entry on it.

I was going to name it but given the number of visitors to this site I figured that might not be a good idea, at least until AFTER I go there. My friend Vlad Karpinskiy visited there a few years ago and he said that its known as a fine fishing lake and that he had an encounter with a 15" trout there.

Its far enough from the road that it'll probably require an overnight stay. Fortunately, there are other good fishing lakes near there so I can make a real trip out of it.

I'm going to start staring at the photo of it right now. Mmmmm. I can already see myself taking this same picture!

Wish me luck in getting there in 2011.

Where are YOU going?

    I'm a long time lurker/reader of your blog. Thanks for sharing your adventures in the snoqualmie pass/valley area.I fish that area alot but not quite as extensively as you. I've been to Scout lake and Annette lake, and I fish the south fork regularly. The Waptus river is my personal favorite.

    I have focused my attention on largemouth bass in the spring when the rivers are closed or blown out and done quite well at a lake I see you have visited (check out the pics).

    Anyway I was wondering if you mind if I fish your "S" slough on the middle fork? I'm pretty sure I've located it on the map, and it looks mighty tempting!

    I believe you are right to keep the lake names quiet.

    Tight Lines in 2011!
