About this spot

Redfish lake is a scenic mountain lake in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area. The lake is named after sockeye salmon, turning red in fresh water while swimming 900 miles in from the Pacific Ocean, who spawn in the lake. Today, only a handful of salmon can make the journey due to man-made obstacles, and the natural run is now supplemented with a fish hatchery.
