Just going by what Art relayed. Only he knows its exact weight. Nonetheless, a brute to say the least and well over 20 I am sure.

Here’s Art Jackson’s big cutt of 5 lbs. caught this summer of 2006. Indeed a brute…

‘Tis a nice rainbow there!
Big trout on jigs…never tried them but could see that they’d probably be effective. Myself and a few buds have found that flatfish seem to have a certain “killer” movement which is pretty effective for larger fish, and then there is the larger spoons too. And some like the right fly when else fails.

The stocking trip when I backpacked the fish up there (in conjunction with the Snoh. Sportsmen’s Club approved by the WDFW) was done in 1998, July I think it was. We also stocked Bear and Pinnacle the same day. It was a nasty rainy day with little visibility. Hemple has been stocked once more since then that I know of by the club, just a few years ago. It provides a little fishery for those who go there, however they never get much of a chance to grow due to it does get fished. Most of the Pilchuck lakes are that way, scenic but popular destinations, the fishing as well. One can however catch a few nice ones from time to time, dpending on the year and age of the fish.
The route: Generally I don’t discuss route details too much, for fear of the crowds that could impact some places too much, but Hemple is not real secluded, tho it doesn’t have a huge trail to it and more or less is a boot path. Seek the end of the road and scout for it…

“I have many pictures of old cabins and shelters, supplied by members of the TB'ers Club, mostly thru the Photo Board Display that was put together and hangs in my den, which is usually brought to the Social every year. Includes abodes like Boundary Lake, My Lake, Phister's Cabin, Bear Lake, Nordrum, Janus Lake, Eagle Lake, and so on. The photos are priceless!”
