East Lake

East Lake

Nestled in the Newberry Caldera at 6400 feet, East Lake has a rich history of fly fishing and for good reason. Two species of rainbow trout, brown trout and kokanee all call this lake home. Consistent hatches of callibaetis and chironomids make this lake a great place to cast a dry fly during the summer.

Guide Report

November 26, 2018

The gate is now closed, making access very difficult. Your best bet is to hold off until spring when the road opens back up.
