Fourth Of July Lake

This lake is in top form and is one of the areas top producing winter-only lakes for trout fishing.  The lake is annually stocked with put-grow-and-take, and fry plant Rainbow Trout, and along with the decent carry-over rate, rainbows in excess of  20 inches are not uncommon and provide plenty of action.  Fourth of July Lake is a popular destination for fly anglers.

Internal combustion engines are not allowed on this lake which allows for a nice peaceful outing. Although this is a winter-only lake, anglers can often find open water conditions during the months of December and March.
