MOUNT PRINCETON HOT SPRINGS RESORT
This lake is in the San Isabel National forest located off hwy #50 above Monarch Lodge. It is a very short but steep hike o.9 miles up with Banana mountain (12,339′) located to the Northwest. Large fat cutthroat (16-18 inches) exist in this lake and are best caught in the spring when the ice starts melting. It is a shallow lake and offers plenty of food especially at the inlets located on the North and West sides. Small black ant patterns along with midges are productive as well as red/white Mepps lures. The trail becomes obscure approximately half way up so by hiking close to the stream the lake should eventually be found. Waypoints and a GPS coordinate on a topo map can be found in a guidebook “Central Colorado Alpine Lakes“.
