Chepeta is a very hit or miss lake. Fishing can be absolutely dead one day and sweet the next. The water was crazy low two summers ago and there may not even be a lot of fish left unless they've planted it since. Worth the trip though -- if one lake is cold another will be hot. Says Matt Allred
This lake is so wonderful. If you came for an overnight stay Spirit Lake Campground is a great place to camp. A lake nearby is Little Elk Lake. Now, you may
imagine that's lots but there's even more exciting things to do here in the Uinta Mountains. Chepeta Dam has good water scenery and it's close to Chepeta Lake, obviously you could also check out Hacking Lake if you're here; it's not far at all.
