Fly fishing was active on a dry fly (elk hair caddis).
Lake level is low, and don't rely on any other water sources along the way, the river is dry in most places.
Make sure you have a forest pass or pay for a day pass for the trail head.
On a somber note two Sheriff's deputies hiked past the lake apparently to the location of someone who passed away. A number of campers noted a helicopter the evening flying overhead and again the next morning. Someone who hiked part of the way with the deputies said it was not a base jumper, while at the trail head forest rangers said they heard a story that there was a base jumper that crashed into the trees.
