High Country Trout

July 10, 2012
Author: Tucker Ladd

I have always been a firm believer that some of the best trout fishing in the Lower 48 can’t be accessed by plane, boat or car.  These are places that are off the map, and only available location-xto those who are willing to work for it.  Backpacking has always been a popular past time in America, but it has never really taken hold in the angling community.  But those hearty soles that are willing to lug a 50lb backpack into one  or our nations many Wilderness Areas, will undoubtedly be greeted with solitude, beautiful surroundings, and lots of hungry trout.

The hard part is that these places aren’t marked on any map.  They are lakes and streams that must be fished and experienced to know if they are any good.  That’s the intriguing part of backpack fly fishing, you never know what you may find.  I have been on plenty of trips that were a complete bust.  The creek was to low, the lake was to shallow, the fish too small.  But for every lake I find that is junk, there is another I find that is a complete jewel.  These are the places that keep  you coming back for more, and pushing yourself that extra mile to get just a little farther away.  But don’t think that these places are in any way a secret.  Although I will not tell you where my honey hole is, I will tell you how to find your own.

Near the top of the Gore Range, there is a little creek that runs cool and clear. Shin deep in the water, thoughts of hot and cold cease to register.
