"Some of the most popular lakes in the Uinta Mountains are found in this drainage. 38 of the 62 lakes in the Duchesne Drainage support fish. Access is from Highway 150 east of Kamas and Highway 35 north of Hanna.

The Highline Trail is a major access route to the primitive area of the Naturalist Basin and the Packard Lake Trail, as well as the headwater region of the Rock Creek Drainage over the top of Rocky Sea Pass. Waters on the eastern rim are reached primarily from the Grandview Trailhead.

Key Species: Brook trout, cutthroat trout, rainbow trout, grayling, golden trout, and brown trout."
