Bald Lake

Bald Lake Professional Review and Guide

"Bald Lake is probably the only lake in the Smiths Fork Drainage containing campsites that still only receives light fishing and camping use. This natural cirque lake harbors a large population of native brook trout. Stocking has been discontinued, since natural reproduction has consistently met its quota. You should have no problem filling your skillet here.

Bald Lake sits near a glacial talus slope with a snowy ice pack that is the main source of water for this alpine lake. Small, stunted pines dot the north and east shorelines where a few sheltered campsites are found. Just south of the lake, a spectacular panorama of the upper Smiths Fork Drainage awaits your viewing."
