As mentioned Black Pine Lake is a real pretty spot - there's another little lake off the West Chewuch Road, maybe off Cub Creek that I fished years ago that is also very pretty and quiet. Buck Lake I think it's called, maybe Bone could weigh in for specifics.

Buck Lake is very scenic. They used to plant it fairly heavily but I haven't heard much about it lately. Last time I was there was the opener of deer season probably 6 years ago and there were a couple guys fishing off the boat launch that had caught a couple cutthroat. Definitely worth a drive up there. Off the 100 Rd up the Chewuch past the West and East Chewuch Rd intersection.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

Patterson has a bunch of kokes but they are being fickle this year.

Careful if you try Pearrygin, its big enough that when the wind picks up, it can white cap. Early mornings are usually calm though

Kinda mark it off the list. Back in the 70-80s we use to troll it with lead line and a fly. We stopped by there last year and it was over run with speed boats.

Agree that it can be over run with speed boats but they aren't allowed until 9am so you could have a quiet morning

Well been looking at the regs .for all the lakes suggested. And I crossed off any with Selective gear rules or catch and release.

My wife is no catch and release fisherwomen. She’s eating it or smoking it.

I havent been to buck lake in over a decade.  It was pretty back in the day.  It was kinda eutrophic and growing in with cattails really bad.   It was great flyfishing.  This is all very dated though as there wasnt a dock there then, so I imagine its worth a looksie.

Alta lake isn’t far away from twisp! Nice clean campground and facilities. Small enough to kayak on but big enough to have your own space. When I stayed there in June we caught plenty of 14”-16” trout and no gear restrictions!

On the list. This adventure starts Friday at noon.
We fished till past dark last night near home. Putting the head lights on yaks before we leave.
