Alta Lake
Photo of Alta Lake

Alta is a popular lake with anglers as fishing holds up quite well throughout the summer.  There is a state park with camping and boat launching facilities, as well as a private resort with cabins and gravel launch site. Expect rainbows in the 11-13 inch range along with carryovers to 16 inches.  Kokanee are still too small to show up in the catch this year, but expect those fish to provide some angling opportunity in 2014. Recent fishing reports indicate rainbows in the 12-15 inch range.
