Snuck out to the St. Mary area to hike to the beautiful Otokomi Lake. The hike up bounces between Rose Creek which starts out of view, then bubbles and pools right next to the trail. As you gain elevation, Rose Creek gives way to nice views of Goat Mountain.
Once again the birds were singing and springtime is great for flowers. There were a few fish as the Cutthroat Trout spawn is just beginning. I tried my hand at some tenkara fly fishing using an Iwana rod from Tenkara USA. If you’re looking for something super light and perfect for activities like backpacking, you should.
All in all a nice spring/summer day!
