Escalante Mountain

Made it out for a couple of days to enjoy the excellent weather in southern Utah. It has been a few months since, I have had a fly rod in my hand! 

There was a lake at 8500 feet that I hiked up to; but unfortunately it was still 90% covered with ice. But after a 3 hour hike to the lake, I did some exploring and ran into another small lake that was positioned better to thaw. The great thing about fishing a lake you have no information on is you have no idea what type of fish you may catch. 

A couple of fish from the lake...





A view from the top of the mountain before the hike down.


Some drone pictures of the valley I camped in, the weather was perfect!



After a long day of hiking Jake and Hunter needed a break.



Looking forward to many more trips this year!
