MOUNT PRINCETON HOT SPRINGS RESORT
This is a very difficult long day hike with 3,260 feet elevation gain. The reward is several cutthroat ranging 32-35 inches long have been caught. The lake sits in a cirque and is very difficult to fish because tall willows (chest high) dominate one side of the lake and the other side contains steep rock slides 30-40 degrees coming right down to the water. The best area to fish is the North and West shoreline with hopper patterns or small black ant patterns size 20-22. It is advised to bring along a mosquito net for the face in your backpack inventory. Hoards of mosquitos can exist depending the time of year. All of the backpack inventory for the high country can be obtained from the author. “Central Colorado Alpine Lakes“.
