Early to mid 80s some of the best trout fishing ever. I miss it. I moved to sw Kansas 24 years ago. Mud holes in these parts. BEARDSLEY LAKE is the best...... Says Michael Couch
This lake is so wonderful. The slopes of Dodge Ridge are so inviting nobody can resist; Stanislaus National Forest is a perfect spot. Whohoo, so many entertaining things in one place! Beardsley Lake is excellent! Beardsley Dam is not far at all from Beardsley Lake, and Fraser
Flat is a beautiful spot any time of year. Beardsley Lake is a fine location to visit for more than one day, Sierra Campground is a fine location to camp nearby.
