I use the skinny tear drops that you can tie onto each end. I put a snap swivel on the main line and its quick snap on snap off the bubble. Run about 4 to 6 ft of regular mono on other end to fly. Works great.
I was going to but picks are to big so I don’t know how to down load them
Wow what a trip. 60 plus miles in 8 days. Weather is crazy at 10,000 to 12,000 feet fro sun, wind, rain, hail and snow in August. Started at Boulder lake trail head, went thru Golden Lakes up to Alpine lakes thru Hay Pass, around to Knife Point glacier through Indian pass back down through Island lakes and over Larson Pass. Followed the highland trail pretty much the whole way down past lake george and and Blueberry lake on the way out. Hell of a hike.
Ya we are gonna make a lay over at camp lake and explore some of the lakes to the north east and then head north west through alpine lakes on the following day and go over Indian pass and make the loop back. Looking for some bigger trout up in that area. We hope to make it up to Camp lake on Day 3 and stay Day 4 there and then head out after that.
We are driving down leaving on the 1st of August. Plan to start hiking on the 3 and make it 9 night and 10 days.
We are gonna make it up past golden lakes and up into alpine lake area.
The trail is to the left 100 to 200 yards before lake #1
What i have found is the same with stunting of fish. Lots of fish and small one too. And to find those lake you will have to wait till July
Wheres a good place to start. I got the east and west maps. Would like to do a 50 miler with a cross county day trip or two on the trip. Looking for high alpine and large trout. Im getting a book also on the area. Also whats the deal with getting an guide to take you to the trailheada on the reservation? Is hiking there better then the other winds
Been to Remmal, Cathedral Lakes, and Four point lake and that area. Great place, lots of fish, but small.
As long as there are fish up there, you can fish for them.
Nice fish Sooperfly….

Well, I’m not intending to contradict you because you’re right of course, but it’s not too hard a leap to imagine a visitor center ranger, who may know little about back country regulations, to have heard the newly enacted policy of “no fish stocking in high lakes” as “no fishing in high lakes”. He should be more careful, but it’s probably not scary 😉
I have always used spinners and never spoons. I wouldn’t mind hearing what spoons are good. I am always willing to try new ways to catch fish. What colors do you guys use. I tend to use maroon, red, and yellow.
You can add #12 Grey Callibeatis Nymph to that list. That is what I caught those Cutts on.
