Snow is blocking access and there's snow at all the lakes. Most lakes will be frozen. The lakes were stocked with 3-inch rainbow trout this year. Many of the larger trout will target these new fish. Rainbow trout Rapalas, Crocodiles, Super Dupers can work really well for these larger fish. ‌

Best lakes to catch fish are Clover, Como, Harriette, Echo, Weston and South Pass in the Mountain Lakes Wilderness and Sonya, Margurette and Isherwood in the Sky Lakes Wilderness. ‌

Best lakes for brook trout are Badger Lake (Sky Lakes Wilderness), which is a short hike from Fourmile Lake, and Clover Lake (Mountain Lakes Wilderness).‌

Best lures are typically dark Panther Martin spinners.‌

The biggest trout come from the bigger and deeper lakes of Harriette, Isherwood and Margurette
