Upper Rush Creek Fishing

Located between Silver Lake and Grant Lake, there are many shore spots available. Park at the Aerie Crag picnic area, or find a safe off HWY parking spot and hike till it feels right.  Waters are clear so you will be able to see where fish are. This is a great fly fishing spot. Please remember your mountain manners and do not leave bait trash or your poop next to the water. Properly bury your personal defecation, or pack it out with you. Please help keep this area clean.
