Take extra auger blades or use somebodies else's auger, because of lots of sand/dirt in the ice.

You'll catch fish, small but it's a fun numbers day. I will never go there again cause of the dirty ice. Kiss your blades good bye.

As far as fish size I would rather go to Evergreen. Same size fish and action ( Georgetown will have an occasional bigger fish though, but not enough to make me go there) and a nicer setting without all the highway traffic. Closer too. Just a suggestion.

Ok, I'll give it a shot. What tips can you give me a Evergreen? Most importantly where to fish?

We got to fish for about 3 hours and did ok. We got five fish and four of them were big enough to keep. It got crazy windy and we hard to go. They really liked the Tungsten jigs tipped with salmon eggs did well. We only saw one other person catch a fish. The really strange thing was that the fish had whole kernel corn in their stomachs. Who been putting corn down the ice holes? lol

Yup, people chum (illegal) with corn. I've seen fish in Granby full of corn.

Is it illegal to chum in Colorado?
