Both lakes are located up a nice hike up a headwall of course. Both contain fish and are relatively clear. This area tends to be a bit windy but the waters are clear so you are able to see fish when the waves are calm.
The fishing in the upper lake has been excellent in the past. The fish were aggressive and there was some sort of action on about 50 percent of casts. I managed to pull out several in the 12-13" range. At one point while releasing a 12" fish with the rod in the other hand I unintentionally caught a 13" fish as the lure dangled in the water. I doubt that happens too often. On my last visit the fishing was much slower. The water level in the upper lake was much lower and I wondered if this had something to do with the change. The lower lake pictured above was not so fruitful but did have fish of the same size range.
