Although the trail to this lake is steep and difficult, it gets very heavy use by recreationists during the summer months.
Non-motorized boats only. Packable rubber rafts and float tubes are used by some fishermen in the wilderness areas. However, the hike into this lake is so difficult that packing water craft is not advised.
A valid California state fishing license is needed to fish within the National Forest. Licenses are sold at sporting good and other retail stores. For information on fishing times & limits a current state fishing regulation guide is generally available free at these same locations. For more information contact California Department of Fish & Game.
