The road is open to both lakes

Highland Lakes - Lake Alpine, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The road is open to both lakes. The lake is located off of highway 88 just over Ebbetts Pass. They have primitive camping available. The road in from 88 is about a 7 mile dirt road, but is accessible to all vehicles. The first lake has good brook trout and the second lake has small brookies. Salmon eggs or flys is my only recommendation. And don't forget your camera. The views are spectacular from ground level. If you decide to take a day hike. The entrance to the Mokelumne wilderness starts right there.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
