As long as you can handle 10,500′ (3.2 km) elevation and you love fishing trouts, there is nothing to stop trying to catch some of these gorgeous fish. It is a very easy hike to reach to golden trout water (only 2 mile hike). There are plenty of golden trout fishers there just for a day.
So after training myself for a couple of months or so by hiking in Berkeley and El Sobrante hills, CA, I was ready for the high altitude challenge of golden trout fishing.
I brought out the backpack I haven’t used for 15 years. 15 mile hike in the golden trout wilderness gave me blisters on my feet and I ended up with high altitude sickness. The pounding headache was so bad I don’t know how I got back to trail head. But just take a look at the most beautiful golden trouts. It was really worth it.
