Where to Fish Harris Lake

Harris Lake


Harris Lake is found in the Rattlesnake Creek Drainage in the East Pioneer Mountains. The lake does not have fish, but amphibian life is good. Tiger Salamanders and Columbia Spotted Frogs can be found around the shore of the lake. There is little human impact on this lake due to no distinct trail to the lake.

Size 5.2 acres
Elevation 8,613.3 ft.
