Did a little exploring over the weekend and fished two lakes i`d never heard of before. Both lakes are on the hood river side of mt hood. Both lakes are very small with brook trout. I caught 15 out of Black with the biggest 9 inches. Rainy lake looked like it should have held larger brook trout but i only caught 3 with the biggest 11 inches. I ran into a local that has been fishing it for 20 years and he said it`s not unusual to pull out 15 inch brookies out of Rainy. Wish i could have stayed until dark, the fishing was ready to turn on when i had to get home. Anyone else fish these lakes?? What about North lake, just down the trail from rainy?
