With the Miriam fire about half a mile from Hell lake in the south cascades and 70% contained I have been watching the situation closely. Made me think of a few questions who has had lakes they like to visit in the wildfire areas this year or last few years? Also I could not find any studies on the web on fire impact on high lakes. I am sure it is complex from shade from trees and deadfall, bugs from the brush and amphibians for food, water temperature, and lake size must be a factor I’m sure to. Does anyone here have any experience on how a fire will affect a high lake?
