So all the lakes in the Carson-Iceberg Wilderness you really have to work at to get to. There are less lakes than the Inyo, and people who want to go to them are either determined, or have pack animals! We wished we had a pack llama named ... Edgar... (I just picked his name just now) to haul our tools.
Either way, there's a lot of fishing in the CI, but a lot of areas in the Southern Region that are protected for two trout species. The Lahontan Cutthroat Trout and the Paiute Cutthroat Trout. Where we went hiking was in the border area where you couldn't fish, to where you can. Tamarack Lake outlet North is fishable.
|Sarah and I added it up... but our work week of 4 days was a lot of up. But we hiked Mt. Rose (2300') on Friday.|

|The flowers were growing that way|
|Sarah hiking down to Coyote Valley|
|Why hello Sierra Juniper|
|Coyote Valley is down there|
|Tamarack Lake. Carson Iceberg Wilderness. Fishable. But no one there!|
|Commissioners Camp. Formerly Governor's Camp because Jerry Brown liked it. Fully decked out campsite with toilet!|
|Lower Fish Valley/Long Valley area at dusk. Wish the group camping there offered us dinner. They had coolers!|
If I go again, I'll be off the clock.
