Hey all. I am in the process of planning a backpacking trip, and fishing is something I'd like to do when I'm out. I have backpacked to numerous lakes with good amounts of fish in Mt Hood and elsewhere, but A LOT of the places are closed due to wildfires. I am thinking about Santiam Lake, just because I've been there before and know there are wild fish, but am hesitant due to the banning of campfires (really want a fire to keep the mosquitoes at bay but will settle for not having one if it means good fishing). Anyone have any recommendations?
