Milton Lake (Reservoir) is a small impoundment along the Middle Fork of the Yuba River 2 miles below Jackson Meadows Reservoir. Its renown as one of the premier still water fisheries in the West. The lake has a rocky past, plagued by mismanagement and the introduction of AIS (namely bullhead catfish), however, California DFG finally figure out the secret sauce, fight fire with fire. They currently manage this as a barbless C&R fishery and are successful in maintaining a self-sustaining population of mature brown trout (and rainbows) which keep the AIS in check.
Also check my killer shrimp scampi...And my most awesome campsite in the entire Jackson Meadows Res. area as proven by scientific studies...no neighbors to be seen!
So nice, the boat is right next to the camp site...picture perfect
Behold, "Trout Truck" keeps a close vigil over the lake... 2013 Power Wagon!

PS: don't take a trailer down past the inlet of the Yuba unless you first walk it, its rough and there are almost no turn around areas, use EXTEME caution, took me a half hour to get out, nearly had to use the winch to pull the trailer out.
