Where high adventure stands supreme
Lake Davis, Plumas County
Before we had convex disks of bronze, tin, or silver, or even man-made mirrors, we could see ourselves in reflections off still water. There are also times we should be thankful it is not a cloudless sky. Photo by Jon Baiocchi
Trinity Lake, Trinity CountyAt the time this photo was taken (2009) Trinity Lake was at one of its lowest points. Rainfall in a wet year helps but it is snow melt from the surrounding Trinities that keeps this lake well supplied. Photo by Roger Briggs
Shasta Lake, Shasta CountyShasta Lake can hold 4,552,000 acre feet of water making it the state's largest reservoir. After lengthy droughts the lake drops so low its several arms begin to look like the rivers they once were. Photo by West Guin
Lake Davis, Plumas CountyThis fish is in every trout fisherman's dreams and it lives in many Northern California waters. Trout season opens the last Saturday in April and big rainbow trout will be the target of fly fishermen. Photo by Jon Baiocchi
Manzanita Lake, Shasta CountyPeaceful little Manzanita Lake at the north entrance to Lassen Volcanic National Park resides in the shadow of Mt. Lassen that last erupted in 1915. Lassen is the southernmost volcano in the Cascade Range. Photo by Dru Mogler
Sacramento NWR Complex, Colusa County
The sport of hunting is passed from generation to generation by family and friends. It is well documented that families that hunt together are much stronger and friendships made afield will last forever. Photo by USFWS
Eagle Lake, Lassen CountyHigh water levels make launching easier and navigation safer but rain, snow and runoff mean even more to water quality and to the health and growth of this lake's unique strain of trout. Let it pour! Photo by Val Aubrey
Eagle Lake, Lassen County
Eagle Lake elevation is 5100 feet. Water level varies significantly depending on precipitation, demand and evaporation. This is the second largest natural lake in California. Clear Lake is larger. Photo by Mike Mogler
Lassen Peak, Shasta County
Lassen Peak stands at what is referred to as the place where the Sierras meet the Cascades. One of two volcanoes to erupt in the 20th Century in the West. Mt. St. Helens was the other. Photo by Frank Galusha
Trinity River Canyon, Trinity CountyFishing from the bank or from drift boats for brown trout, salmon and steelhead is productive year round. In summer sunshine prevails as rafters come to experience the thrill of Class IV and V rapids. Photo by West Guin
