Jackson Meadow & Milton Reservoirs Professional Review and Guide

"Jackson Meadow, at more than 6,000 feet in elevation, provides a typical picturesque and forested Sierra Nevada lake. An additional benefit is that it’s easy to get to. Located 25 miles north of Truckee (most anglers take Highway 89 north), the reservoir is a convenient staging area for backpackers and others heading into the forest. Don’t let this deter you. This drive-up convenience and easy access are plusses for the fly fisher. Types of Fish: Both lakes hold healthy populations of rainbow and brown trout, with the occasional cutthroat. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping."
