    I usually carry a plastic bag, find snow wrap it in my cloths to keep it insulated. That is if I am lucky to catch any fish.

    I would use spinners like mepps, rooster tail etc. Don’t expect much size in Boiling lake as you can ride motorcycles right by it and when I was in it last the fish were small and thin. You will probably do better in the other lakes

    Yea I packed a couple of rafts in there last year for the wife, dog and myself. We stayed at the other side of Big Heart. Got up the next day and paddled down the lake and went over to Angeline, then up to Chetwoot. Fishing was fair especially with the rafts. You will find most of the fishermen fish the lakes where the trail comes close to it. So if you paddle to the other side you should do well. Its a beautiful area I usually go in on a Thursday. Good luck

    Keep in mind that Malachite is a side trail off the main trail. So if you want to be away from the crowd then camp there. You are within easy hiking distance to Copper, Lil Heart, and Big heart. Don’t know if you plan on packing a raft but that will increase your chances of catching fish. This area does get hit pretty hard by hikers. Make sure you remove anything in your vehicle that might want to entice any riff raff to let themselves in your car.

    I would look at getting above Trout Lake early in the day because as soon as the sun his the switchbacks above Trout Lake it can get hot. So drink lots of water. It’s a relatively easy hike since you are on trail. Spent a long weekend up there last summer in my rafts. Are you looking at fishing multiple lakes or heading to one lake?

    National Park: These are generally large natural places having a wide variety of attributes, at times including significant historic assets. Hunting, mining and consumptive activities are not authorized.

    National Recreation Area: Twelve NRAs in the system are centered on large reservoirs and emphasize water-based recreation. Five other NRAs are located near major population centers. Such urban parks combine scarce open spaces with the preservation of significant historic resources and important natural areas in locations that can provide outdoor recreation for large numbers of people. Thus you can hunt in the Lake Chelan National Recreation area but not in the National Park.
