Default Welcome to Come Along to Flat Tops 18 - 23 June 2019

Going on a fishing trip to Flat Tops, leaving from Colorado Springs around noon on the 19th of June and returning on the 24th of June. Going to set up by 10' x 14' canvas tent at the bottom of Yamcolo Reservoir. Lot of fishing holes in the area. If someone wants a productive fishing trip for trout, this is it!

Hope you don't have to build a snow cave.

Should be just about perfect weather there during that time.

That's a really nice area.

Snow doesn't bother me being from northern Maine.

I called the trip 3 days early...got there, set up in hail and rain...next day was nice for half the day then started raining hard on Thursday and the wind howling at 50+ mph at times...rain changed to snow early morning and temps stayed at 32 degrees...Stillwater was still half frozen over, but on Thursday I did manage to catch quite a few 16' cutbows. Packed out in the snow and mud and got home on Friday evening. Could have lived with snow, but it was wet, heavy snow and with the temps right at 32 degrees, was muddy. Forecast called for rain through the weekend and heavy winds. A week before I left, it was supposed to be sunny with a 10 percent chance of rain each day. Weathermen suck!

Nice job sticking it out as long as you did. Mother Nature can be a heartless biotch at 10 - 12,000 ft... downright inhospitable even in mid-summer. At least you got a few!

Brutal! Ive been scarred by weather reports in the Flattops b4-

Any of the higher lakes would still be solid frozen.

It would have been less of an adventure without the surprise weather. The shittiest trips are the ones we always remember.
