This lake was really a great lake to fish, then the Wildlife Dept. killed all the fish in that lake. It had 7 and 8 pound largemouth bass. It had 20 pound northern pike, and it was just fine the way it was. Then they killed the lake. I AM REALLY MAD ABOUT WHAT THEY DID. Says Rick
Be careful coming to the Egan Range, you might not ever want to go back home again. Stay the night at Garnet Hill Dispersed; dry warm beds await you at Ramada Ely. KOA Kampgrounds
is a great campground nearby, and Great Basin National Park is a magnificent place nearby. A tour to Cave Lake State Park when you're here at Bassett Lake is a splendid idea, and swamps are attention-grabbing places and Steptoe Slough close to Bassett Lake is no exception.
