These underfished tarns host everything from wild 5-pound cutthroat to the elusive and challenging golden trout to the increasingly rare arctic grayling. Mix in the occasional trophy brookie and all the 12-inch cutts and rainbows you can catch and it becomes apparent that there is no shortage of opportunity.
A broad selection of drive-to lakes, short hikes and several-mile treks with overnights are laid out with GPS coordinates for the trailheads and destinations.
