Jackson Meadows & Milton Reservoirs Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Jackson Meadows, at more than 6,000 feet in elevation, provides a typical picturesque and forested Sierra Nevada mountain lake. An additional benefit is that it’s easy to get to. Located 25 miles north of Truckee, California (most 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 is a plus for the fly fisher. Milton is even prettier than Jackson: one of the most scenic still waters in the eastern Sierra. It can also be a very productive fly fishing spot as well. Type of Fish: Both lakes hold healthy populations of rainbow and brown trout, with the occasional cutthroat. This eTrail covers the "where, when, and how" to fish in this region. You'll get a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to bring, and the best flies to use."
