Before someone tries to correct and doubt my ID let me say this. These are the only salamanders within range that go through an aquatic phase. If you don't believe me go onto the website California herps. Go to the salamander section. Then click the range map section and see how many salamanders are found in Alpine County. If you still don't believe me click on all the salamander pages that can be found within the county. You will see that these are the only salamanders with an aquatic phase.

Now this was extremely cool!!! I was trying to get a picture of the water boatmen when after I just got done turning off my camera I saw one surface and swim back down. I only found them in spot of the whole lake but there was quite a few in that area.

Description from Wikipedia

The long-toed salamander (Ambystoma macrodactylum, Baird 1849) is a mole salamander in the family Ambystomatidae. This species, typically 4.1–8.9 cm (1.6 to 3.5 in) long when mature, is characterized by its mottled black, brown, and yellow pigmentation, and its long outer fourth toe on the hind limbs. Analysis of fossil records, genetics, and biogeography suggest A. macrodactylum and A. laterale are descended from a common ancestor that gained access to the western Cordillera with the loss of the mid-continental...
