My husband had been there fishing before with our neighbor, but I had never to the lake. The lake is a watershed to the American River and boating is only allowed at low speed. The lake is surrounded by Sugar Pines and apparently there is a path all around the lake that was hiked throughout the day as we were there by several hikers, the lake is easy for hiking. Though we did not hike around the lake we fished from the bank, we were not able to catch any fish other then a tiny trout that we threw back into the lake. I was thinking because it was Labor Day weekend and many were swimming near us that we were not seem to catch any fish.
All and all it was worth the short drive from our home because there was no traffic to fight to get there going through sleepy Foresthill. The Foreshill bridge looked to be having updating but we escaped the inconvenience because of the holiday. The lake has a camping ground area and they were full. We will definitely be back for another fishing trip really soon and hopefully catch some trout or bass.
Here are some photos I took of the lake, it's just gorgeous. We brought our little pups Edee and Effie on our fishing trip and I brought little beach chairs for them to sit on because they are pampered pets. The jumped right up in them like they deserved them and knew the chairs were for them.
