Gray Rock Lake


Species present: Rainbow and Brook Trout.

Seasons: Open all year. Bag limit: 5 per day, 10 in possession.

Date of usual ice out: June 1 (5,950' elevation).

Access trails: This lake is located in Section 27, T39N, R5W. Access it via the South Fork Road (Road 26) from the W.A. Barr Road. About 6 miles up Road 26, at the wooden bridge, take road 40N43 to the left across the wooden bridge, go about 500' and turn right onto road 39N45. Go about 1.5 miles to road 39N44 and turn left. These roads are very rocky and are not suitable for low clearance vehicles. At the end of road 39N44, the Gray Rock Lake Trail (5W07) goes to Gray Rock Lake. 

Camping: Several good sites, but firewood is scarce.

Surface acres: 11 acres and 20' deep.

Comments: A popular lake and fair to good fishing for small Brook Trout. It is located in the Castle Crags Wilderness. There are two Gray Rock Lakes. This one is on National Forest land, while the other is on private land, and is south of this lake.
