Pine Lake, Utah

Pine Lake sits just below the Aquarius Plateau in the Boulder Mountains only 17 miles from Bryce Canyon.  You would might think it would be overrun by the crowds but you would be wrong.  While Highway 12 and Ruby’s Inn make you feel like bees in a blender, the eastern choice at the junction, John’s Valley Road, didn’t make the brochure so a little quiet can be found. Rainbow Trout abound in the lake and can be caught using anything from Power Bait to flies (Damsel Flies are the predominant hatch)  The wind blows A LOT through the saddle, so this reflection was a rare sight.   pine lake-Kolab Trout copy
