I made my first trip to a high lake a month ago. Went up to Lanham lake on stevens pass nice 1.6 mile hike steep at times lots of devils club. Anyways went with my fly pole and a spinning reel and fished with a cast master. The lake was crystal clear arrived around 11:30 and successfully caught about 50 fish in 1 hour. None of the fish were more than 12 inches but I tried to get some good video clips on my gopro but didnt get many good shots. Just thought I would share. I would think that it would be a good trip for a family if kids are around 6-7 or older. Also bring bug spray biting flies show up near the lake.
