Redfish Lake, famous for the shoreline lodge that shares its name, is everything everyone wants a mountain lake to be. Surrounded by dense woods and spiky mountains, the lake is thick with Rainbow Trout and ensnared by a maze of hiking trails. In summer, the water is warmer than one would expect (just don't try to dive) and offers a refreshing break from the intense Idaho sun. Add to all that the fact that the lake is just a quick drive from the charming town of Stanley and the Salmon River, and you've got a Western winner.
