Hiking to Lake Mary tomorrow with the family. Does anyone know if there a fish in there and would it be worth it to take a fishing pole?
Thanks for any help.

It was not productive but always worth a try. I tried a fly and a bubble, a jakes in gold and silver, a blue fox and a kastmaster....nothing. It was fun watching the forest service hand out citations to the idiots cliff jumping into the lake though.

Like this guy?


Even as the rangers were handing out tickets to people in the same party, more people would jump in. Had to laugh a little.

It's kind of a silly rule, I think. Peoples' sweat and skin aren't going to harm the watershed, anymore than fish/elk/moose/dog poop.

-BTW, a 1/8oz jig head with a white Outlaw tube jig, tipped with a small minnow (freshly killed) got me quite a few brookies, though I was gunning for the macks.

All my catches came from the bottom. The surface temp was quite warm and all the fish were ice cold. Kinda neat.

A friend of mine has fished that lake more than a few times over the years and says that the best time to hit it is before there is enough light to produce a shadow.

I recently moved to Utah and would like to start fishing again after about a 15 year break (i.e., currently have no gear).

Has anybody else had success in the Cottonwood Lakes fishing with fly and bubble, spinners, etc.? What has worked for others? I would be looking to fish fairly early in the morning. I assume the fish in those lakes are relatively small and would only require lightweight gear.
