North Picket Pin Lake

 There are two small lakes just off the Picket Pin Road.  North Picket Pin and South Picket Pin.  Both are stocked with Yellowstone Cutthroat trout.  Both are very small and shallow, but contain a good population of tiny native shrimp, so the trout grow very fast.  We went to North Picket Pin Lake and I caught this nice Cut, which we took home for Joe's dinner.  In years of severe winter weather, the fish often die off - the shallow lake freezes solid and sometimes they don't survive (the lake is only 20 feet deep).
I enjoyed watching these clouds form over the lake while I fished.
