Default Fishing family tradition

Hi there, just joined. Looking forward to tips and tall tales of colorful Colorado fishing.

My dad, now departed, fished with his family in Wisconsin. Dad and I fished some southern AZ lakes in rental boats when I was a kid—some of my fondest memories growing up. We hit the lakes up here a few times after I moved. Now I have a kid of my own who really wants to catch herself a fish.

Unfortunately, her old man, yours truly, is hilariously bad at angling so I am now on a mission to learn more and keep the tradition alive.

We just got back from a trip to Grand Lake. No fish caught but at least we got a few nibbles on Creme spoiler shad, Berkeley worms, salmon eggs, and nightcrawlers. That's way better than our poor luck at Quincy a few months ago or on prior trips.

I'd like to figure out which lakes in and near Denver are a good bet for the remainder of summer for shore fishing and see what tips I can pick up for improving our success.

If you don't want to travel far from Denver, you could take her to Evergreen lake. Nothing big, but a good place to take a kid to catch fish. Bait will work fine.
