Archuleta Lake is 6 miles into the Weminuche Wilderness starting from Big Meadows Reservoir. I finally bit the bullet and hiked in there on a "no-storms-in-the-forecast" day. The action was good for pan-sized brookies but nothing big. It was a challenging hike in and out! Beautiful lake and mountains.

Thanks Bron. I have a goal to fish all the high lakes surrounding the San Luis Valley. Am 72% completed. Unfortunately all the easy ones are done and now the hard long hikes remain! This is one less anyway!

Im in the same boat Johnski. Trying to do every lake in my region and having to go far or hike now. Did the S. Boulder Cr. headwaters over the weekend by Moffat Tunnel.
