hey, kept it easy this weekend because of the company i took– ended up going to heather lake early before everyone got there. it’s a pretty little lake. and the fishing, well, err, it’s a pretty little lake.
part of the issue is i’ve now been to most of the mid-range hikes that i presume to have fish about 1.5 hours from seattle.
so i’m left deciding if i want to make a day hike out of a longer trek like big heart lake, for example.
alaska lake is a great tip, as it is not on the wdfw link ( http://wdfw.wa.gov/outreach/fishing/hilakapx.pdf ). same with those lakes beyond snow you mentioned.
i may check out alaska before the year is out.
