Description:  This high country backpacking Rondy spans seven days, which includes driving to and from the trail head.  Emigrant Lake, the largest lake in the Emigrant Wilderness, is 3 miles long and at approximately 8500’ elevation. There are plenty of wading access points and the trout are a good size, with most being over 12” long.

The first night will be spent near the trailhead. Two days each way are required for hiking to and from Emigrant Lake. We will spend 3 nights at Emigrant Lake providing 2 full days of fishing. The trail is very well maintained, and the round-trip total distance is approximately 32 miles. Elevation gain is approximately 3000’ from the trailhead.

The trip is open to experienced backpackers only and participants should be in good physical condition.  Your leader (club member Richard Gamer) is a very experienced backpacker, having backpacked throughout the Sierras during summers for the past 40 years.

A pre-trip meeting will be schedule for mid June. This meeting will cover the logistics of where to meet, possible carpooling, what to bring, more about what to expect, etc.

Suggested Gear:  All the backpacking gear to support yourself including tent, sleeping bag, pad, stove, cooking gear and utensils, water filter, light, etc. Your favorite mountain lake/steam fly rod and reel with flies. Wading shoes and staff. Clothes for all possible weather (think rain and cold). All the food and beverage for yourself. 

Cost:  The fee for this Rondy is $25 which does NOT include the cost of your own food, transportation, and other consumables. You will need to provide your own equipment. Some items may be shared.  

Cancellation Policy:  There are no refunds.  In the event that a member is, for any reason, unable to attend, he may resell his slot (rod) to another GGACC member (by first pulling from the waitlist if one exists).  It is the sole responsibility of the member to manage this transaction.  This is not the responsibility of the leader or club.
