Paddle the Lakes 


Causey Reservoir 

This 142-acre alpine reservoir restricts motorized boats, making it an idyllic location for kayaks, canoes, and stand-up paddleboards. It’s 5,700’ elevation makes for brisk swimming, but also makes it ideal for healthy populations of trout and Kokanee salmon, which run up Causey’s tributaries in a brilliant display of red every September.

Things can get quite busy mid summer, especially on a weekend. Be sure to go early to catch the sun rise from the middle of the lake and be sure to only park in designated parking areas. And remember. Pack it in , pack it out.
