Default Need a backup plan?

Wanted to hit Granby up Sunday but everytime I check the weather it gets worse/colder. Anyone have any suggestions for a backup?

It will be 3 of us on the boat.

Any input?

Would like to fish cold water fish.

Sure. Add another layer. No pain, no gain.
I agree. How tough are your fishin buddies?

JIP - It depends on how far you are willing to go, assuming you are coming from Denver?? *I would recommend fishing Green Mountain or Willies Fork due to the opportunity to catch multiple species, also similar species to what is in Granby (macks, kokes, and trout; even pike in Willies Fork). *They are still pretty close to Granby so the weather may not be that much different, but I believe both Green Mtn and Willies are a little lower in elevation and may be that much warmer than Granby. *There are lots and lots of options. *

I was thinking the same thing as rip lip but the weather is going to be the same at Granby as it is at Willies or Grn Mtn and Elevenmile and Spinney will be just as bad. Are you sure you want to fish for cold water species?

I bet if it's cold enough, Cherry Creek won't have that much traffic on it on Sunday.

Looks like Granby and Rampart have the same forecast Sunday, basically. Sunny, 50s, no wind.

Don, is that fish from Granby? I would have thought Granby would have a lid by Dec.
