Although Carolyn Lake is in a popular area, it is most often passed by. This small lake is in timbered country characterized by boggy shorelines and a small, wet meadow. Springwater is somewhat limited, but good running water can be found on the southeast side of the lake. One reason we think this lake is so often overlooked is because Carolyn contains a large population of arctic grayling. This is no problem if you know how to prepare the little suckers, but most anglers prefer high-mountain trout. If grayling are on your menu, you should have no problem limiting out. The fish seem to be jumping all day long and will smack a small, colorful fl y or fl ashy spinner.
