Default Evergreen or Georgetown Late December?

Hey All,

I am wondering which of these lakes you would recommend ice fishing in late December?

I grew up in evergreen and used to ice fish there 15 plus times a winter and would limit every time just dropping salmon eggs to the bottom, That was also over a decade ago.... I am wondering if that is still the best strategy for the mostly stocker population residing in these lakes?

I have never ice fished at Georgetown but I see people seem to be catching a fair amount of fish there in recent years, also wondering what bait/lures/jigs people have had success with there in years past.

Thank you in advance!

I wouldn't do either honestly. There's less known lakes you'd have a better time at as well as probably catch better fish

Early ice at Evergreen is fun but after that it's a crowded nightmare.

Never been to Georgetown but was told it's super windy which in turn blows dirt on the ice that will quickly dull your auger blades.

I am trying to stay relative close to home, I live in centennial now. What lake will have better ice fishing options within a couple of hours of the metro? I like catching big fish (obviously lol) but have found that I prefer catching more fish while out on the ice. I also will be going mid-week so crowds shouldn't be that big of issue.

Hit 11 Mile at the inlet side you'll see all the swiss cheese holes in the ice! 2 hours from your home!

Evergreen has been my favorite for catching numbers. If you go during the week you should be good.

Rat Finkee or shrimpo tipped with a wax worm or piece of raw shrimp works well.

Never tried salmon eggs fyi.

GT is brown trout, while Evergreen is stocker RBT's.

Of the 2, the catching will be easiest at Evergreen.
