Video: Gary LaFontaine on Fishing Small Mountain Lakes
As Gary LaFontaine says, “most of the problem in fishing high mountain lakes is finding the fish. Once you’ve found the fish, then you’ve got a few basic food forms.” LaFontaine’s video on how to fish a “Small Mountain Lake” shows where to find trout in high mountain lakes and how to feed them.
Excerpt: “A fairly steep shoreline is always good. Shorelines naturally gather food blown by the wind. You can fish lakes from the shoreline alone, but a float-tube or boat is more versatile. Bays too are a great place to find fish, as are the shelves and drop-offs associated with bays. Other good places are submerged trees, large rocks, or weed beds in deep water.”
