This is a very handy guide to help you hook golden, rainbow, brook and brown trout in this beautiful California backpacking area.

Over 60 lakes are treated angling opportunities for a lifetime. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches, 64 pages.

Proceeds from the book are to be used to further biological studies of the area which has been a hotbed of controversy about the interactions of fish and amphibian populations in the High Sierra. For example, last summer it partially funded a joint DFG/USFS pack trip to study several frog populations in the Wilderness.
