Trappers Lake itself is pretty good fishing but you will be around people. If you are up for a hike, most of the lakes around there are good. Skinny Fish is a little to the North of Trappers and about 1 1/2 hr hike. It used to have some good size Brookies. Packing a float tube is usually well worth the effort. I do fly rod or spinners (yellow Panther Martin). I would love to spend the summer up there as there are so many lakes, so little time....

Last year we hunted above sweetwater lake which is almost due south of trappers lake. there is a little lake called hack lake northeast of sweetwater lake. you can go hwy 150/sweetwater rd. past 7 w ranch and then make a right to head up a draw. maybe about a 2 mile hike up to hack lake. its only about an acre or two, but trout everywhere (i dont know how much of a challenge it would be). there is a little rustic one room cabin up there too. it is beautiful and i bet it rarely gets much heavy fishing pressure.
