Crater lake has been on my list for years. Love to hear some details on the hike in & the fishing?

Brian, your fishing raft reminds me of the yellow WWII Airmans survival raft my dad passed down to me.
He hiked it in to a number of lakes in the 40’s & 50’s & then I did in the 70 & 80’s. We used ping pong paddles for little oars, drilled the handles & ran a 4′ cord from one to the other. That way when we hooked a fish pulling a spinner along, we could just let them go & grab the rod…… 😀

The standard climbing route up the peak goes by the lake that sits in the hole on the left side..

Here is a nice cutt from about 1977-78, don’t know if it made 20″ but it’s close. Whale lake is @ 4600′ & a pretty good cross-country hike, well it was back then…Our route was pretty cool, we started @ Slide lake and I caught a MBS cutt there that was huge 26-28″ guessing about 4 lbs…no picture of course. After Slide we went up the creek to Enjar/Hamar then over the ridge to the north & down the rockslide to Arrowhead lake. Next day we made it to Whale, fish nailed a #3 Mepps spinner. I was fishing my old Lamiglas collapsible 7′ spin/fly rod & think I had my Dad’s Mitchell 304s on it then….
This is one really slick site, glad I found it!!
