HIKE: EAST INLET FISHING (3 DAY)
With three different lakes and a connecting stream teeming with trout, this trek is a fly fisherman’s paradise.
For families and new hikers, Big Meadows is a great introduction to backpacking in an unforgettable landscape. The advantage of lower altitudes and gradual terrain compared to other backpacking areas in the park makes this the perfect trip for those who want big views and the opportunity to see majestic wildlife, such as moose and elk. While we’re there, we’ll also have the opportunity to explore some of the streams, small lakes, and meadows that are showcased in this wonderful backpacking area of Rocky Mountain National Park. If you are interested in fly fishing, we can throw in a fly rod and tackle for you to try your hand at the world-famous trout that call Big Meadows their home.
With three different lakes and a connecting stream teeming with trout, this trek is a fly fisherman’s paradise. Because of its location on the less-visited western side of Rocky Mountain National Park, you’re likely to have your pick of fishing spots with little to no competition on this trip. This trail winds past some great small stream fishing in beautiful meadows and dense forests, and up to one of the largest fishable lakes in the Park, Lake Verna. Whether you prefer casting into a stream or an alpine lake, this trip is perfect for anglers of any skill level.
