   Fishtrap Lake is a nice clear water lake located just a little ways north of Boulder Junction. The lake connects with High Lake offering a big body of water to explore. One of the nicer things about Fishtrap Lake is that it has a meandering shoreline. Meandering shorelines are far prettier and more interesting (at least in my opinion) than bowl shaped lakes where you can take it all in with one glance.
