Independence Lake, north of Truckee, is home to one of the world’s last two wild, self-sustaining lake populations of Lahontan cutthroat trout and a prime source of clean drinking water for Western Nevada. The surrounding forests and meadows are home to black bear, mountain lion, mule deer, and Sierra Nevada yellow-legged frogs.  Bald eagles and osprey hunting fish can be spotted from the shorelines. Nearby Perazzo Meadows is one of the largest wet meadow systems in the Northern Sierras. Perazzo Meadows is the site of a multi-year meadow restoration effort.
