Sitting at an elevation of 1,996 metres, Redfish Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in Idaho, what with the mountain peaks that frame it. The lake sits at the base of the Sawtooth Mountains in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area.
Redfish Lake gets its name from the brilliant sockeye salmon that used to swim around it. Today, they can still be seen in fewer numbers and must not be removed from the lake.
The lake features an 18 kilometer shoreline that is encircled by a trail. In addition to this, it is also a very popular spot for canoeing, kayaking and camping.
