Fish Lake, Utah

Fish Lake is a high alpine lake (elevation approximately 8,848 ft). It lies within and is the namesake of the Fishlake National Forest. Fish Lake is six miles long and one mile wide, lies in a geologic structure known as a graben valley. It is bounded by the Mytoge Mountains on the south-east shore which rise sharply to over 1,000 feet above the lake level. Along the north-west shore, the lake is bounded by Fish Lake Hightop Plateau (elevation 11,600 ft). We camped in the Mackinaw campground along the lake shore. We tried our luck at some trout fishing, but came back empty handed.
