Please note that the opening date has changed on this lake! Starting in fall 2015, this lake will open to fishing the first Friday following Thanksgiving, giving anglers an alternative to the Black Friday shopping day.
This lake is in top form and is one of the areas top producing winter-only lakes for trout fishing. The lake is annually stocked with put-grow-and-take, and fry plant Rainbow Trout, and along with the decent carry-over rate, rainbows in excess of 20 inches are not uncommon and provide plenty of action. Fourth of July Lake is a popular destination for fly anglers.
Anglers should be aware of low water conditions which makes launching a challenge. Internal combustion engines are not allowed on this lake which allows for a nice peaceful outing. Although this is a winter-only lake, anglers can often find open water conditions during the months of December and March.
