Directions - Easiest access from town of Virgin, located east of St. George. Take turnoff from I-15 to Toquerville and LaVernkin, then east to Virgin. Once in town take road that heads north. Lake about 25 miles from town.

Description - This is a fairly large lake located in a high-alltitude (8,000 feet) setting. Most of the land around the lake is private, but ther is some public access to shoreline.

Fish - Rainbow, Brook, Cutthroat

What Works - Whenever there are rainbow, look to traditional baits - salmon eggs, cheese, night crawlers and Power Bait. Also good place to toss a fly and bubble. Float tubers may want to try a fly on a sinking flyline.

Details - Being a high mountain lake, best fishing is going to be in the mornings and evenings. Fish inlets early then head for deeper water as temperatures warm. For flies try Griffiths Gnat, black gnats, and mosquitoes. With the sinking fly line try Wolly Buggers, in black or green, damsel fly nymphs, Renegades or Peacock Wooly Worms. In heat of the day try trolling pop gear and worm, flatfish or triple teasers on lead-core line.

Notes - No improved camping or boat ramp, but there is primitive camping in the area and small boats can be launched. To reach the lake from Virgin you must drive through middle of Zion National Park. No campground through this section of park. The country, however, is beautiful. Nice drive from Virgin to Cedar City.
