My dad emailed this to me this morning and it really got my drooling. That's a whole lot of fish!

Great! I went up there 1 1/2 years ago... caught a couple Big trout, and seen several others... unfortunately i forgot about them in the ice chest and woke up to bears raiding my camp. But I can't wait to make it up there this year. If no ones gone up there before It makes for a great weekend, boat rentals and nice campsites. Just bring warm clothes.. kinda chilly all year

What kind of camp sites do they have there and can dogs be off leash?

I don't believe there is a bad one, the views are amazing and the fishing is approaching wonderful. Here is a link to the resort, it will answer most of your questions. When you have more questions like where to fish and what to bring, I am sure one of us will shoot you a PM or even post for all to view. Good luck and tight lines.

There are campgrounds on both side's of the lake, I prefer the east over the west (hot showers) All dogs need to be on a leash or tied up legally! My Lab like's it there, I'll let you figure the rest out:rolleyes: The fishing last sept, was insane! Lot's of nice fish and they eat really good for stockers (fresh water shrimp), and I mean really good! Oh one word "Racoons", "we were at war":lol:

Is there any boat-in camping, or is it just all campground? We have an annual trip with about 25-30 people that we are thinking about switching over to Diamond from Paulina.

Looks like it's worth giving it a try when I have a vacation which won't be until next summer.

Looks like Ima need to buy a new Duckworth or Alumaweld... :shock:
That looks more like Salmon fishing on the Columbia!

And that's why I probably won't go until maybe late fall. Personally I'd rather not see a soul while I'm out fishing. Problem is it's pretty much the same way at any drive to lake.

Don't let all of the baots scare you off, just get in with them and catch fish. They pile up where the fish are biting!

I am stoked to see it come back. I went to East lake last year and the shallows literally moved with all the tui chubs. But without the huge baitfish numbers there wouldn't be the huge browns. Kind of a catch 22 if they rotenoe that lake.

Diamond lake is looking to be HOT this year. You gotta watch the wind on that big lake thought cause it will blow you off the water. BIG ol' trout, and it looks like PLENTY to go around this year!!! Can't wait for school to get out so I can set up camp at Diamond for a week or two.
