also inspired by Osthoff's book. awesome info in there despite not being necessarily up to date. alot of the high lakes up here go through cycles, a small fish turn to big fish, possibly spawn, overpopulate, back to lots of small fish. some lakes have no natural spawning and some experience fish kills. all these factors plus some tight lips make info difficult to find. but its worth doing some research.
Ive done 5-6 trips into the Winds to fish various areas and can attest to the current health of the trout fishing there. probably my favorite fishing. hike in w/ all your gear and food. choose an area w/ a cluster of lakes and streams and just spend ur days exploring there are many fish and some very large ones. go as long as possible. my longest has been 5 days, not nearly long enough. good luck
