Elk Lake - Trout Creek

Elk Lake, otherwise known as Simms Lake, is about 7 acres in a steep, little timbered pocket. The shore is rather brushy, with an old cabin on the southwest corner. Used mainly by locals, fishing is primarily for cutthroat trout. As the lake is located partially on private property, permission should be obtained for shoreline use.
