05paulina_lake_frm_paulina_peak.jpg Newberry Volcano's 17-mile wide caldera holds not one but two magnificent lakes. These two lakes can be seen in this picture. East Lake, on the far right, is shallower and smaller, while on the left is the deeper and larger Paulina Lake. Both offer outstanding boating and fishing (Brown and Rainbow trout as well as Atlantic salmon) opportunities. (It is said a 37 1/2-inch long Brown trout weighing 35 pounds, 9 ounces was taken from Paulina Lake.) Note the Central Pumice Cone and the Interlake Obsidian Flow seperating the two lakes.
