Absolute favorite lake to fish in Eastern Sierras, whoppers everytime. Do you know where it is?

Hint: Pic is taken when lake is high, and the tree branches in the water behind me should give it away. Boat must be taken to spot when lake is high. If you have been there, you will recognize it.

Sorry if this post angers you (it is not a report) but I thought things were getting a little slow around here so I decided to add something.

Uhhh????! I have been to many different lakes, ponds and creeks in the Sierras but ....not sure.....haven't been to all of them....... :?:

lake mary on the south side where there is a lot of tree stumps and branches coming out of the water

Looks like Lundy Lake at the back end past the feeder stream.

05-20-2007, 09:59 PM
it looks like the back of lundy lake


05-21-2007, 04:37 AM
It's not the back of Lundy - there is no thick brush in the water at Lundy like the background here. Not North, Sabrina, Convict, Mary, George, Mamie, Twin, June Lake loop, Ellery, Tioga, Saddlebag, Virginias, Trumbull. Definately not Pleasant Valley, Crowley, Grant or Bridgeport. Is it South Lake or Intake 2?

I would say, by looking at the canyon behind the lake, you were at Convict.

05-21-2007, 07:49 PM
or maybe gull looking at the brush behind you i think the camping area is behind those bushes

05-21-2007, 07:59 PM
Come on buddy, If was Grant then I was right.

If it was another lake in the loop Then I did great too. I was in the ball park so to speak.

Let me know what lake it is .If I was right or close. PM me and I promise I will not tell anyone untill after you post the answer.

The answer Please

05-22-2007, 05:37 PM
Alright....this is no longer fun.

THE ANSWER IS ... ... ... Lundy.

Out of the 16 years I have been going there, that was the highest I have ever seen it. The pic is of the inlet directly behind me, and I have never seen the water come close to touching those trees. "Normally" I would be standing in that spot which was about 8 feet under water when the pic was taken.
