Thomas Lake is located in the west side of the Indian Heaven Wilderness. The lake contains eastern brook, rainbow, and cutthroat trout. Fish species are planted alternately each year by backpack as fingerlings. The lake has some shore access, but a float tube offers the best fishing opportunity. This lake is easily accessible for day hiking and fishing, but the area contains several other lakes close by too such as Kwaddis, Dee, Heather, and Eunice Lakes. Camp sites are available so a person could fish these lakes for several days. Lake is usually accessible by late May early June depending on snowmelt. Mosquitos can be quite bad until late summer.
To get to Thomas Lake you take trail #111 which starts at the Thomas Lake Trailhead off of Forest Road 65. It is an easy short hike on a well defined trail to the lake.
