    Hey all,

    I'm headed up the ingalls creek trail for a quick overnight backpack with the girlfriend. I checked the regs and it says it's open once in the alpine lakes boundary. Any one ever have success up there? I'm just wondering what to expect and if it's worth packing the rod and some flies along. I recently moved up here from northern ca, so if someone wants to trade info, send me a message.

    Thanks

    It's very worth bringing a rod and some flies.

    Bring the 2-3 weight, and fish the creek for sure.

    Sorry I missed the trip start. If you make it all the way to Ingalls lake you'll find hungry trout that will eat almost any dry. The lake ice comes off late so it may be too early. The lake is so clear, you can watch the fish come up from near the bottom to hit your fly. At least it was fifty years ago! Please give us a report.

    the creek below the wilderness boundary is closed permanently, so don't bother with that. In the ALW, go for it!

    Thanks for the info everyone, unfortunately I wasn't able to get over to ingalls this weekend. Got called into work so the trip had to be postponed. For consolation i did make it up to the s/f of the snoqualmie twice in the late evening. Great little stream. Probably got close to twenty fish in a two to three hours of fishing. Tough to find anything like that near my hometown in northern california. I was throwing everything in the box and they hit just about every dry I had with me. Biggest was only about 8'' or 9'', but still a lot of fun on the three weight. Im curious to go back and throw some streamers in the deeper pools and see what I can swing up.

    But anyway, as soon as I make it over to ingalls I'll post a report.
