Try the Spider Lake Chain near Hayward, Wisconsin.* Got these two there 2 weeks ago!*

Certainly not the expert but Eleven Mile and Spinney are probably the closest to Denver where you can catch a quality NP. *Horsetooth to the north holds some as well. *

Never caught a Tiger Muskie - Quincy Res in Aurora is the home of the state record (think it still stands) and I believe they have been planted in Bear Creek and Chatfield also.

Lot of people on this site that target northerns so you will get some quality info.

To be fair, I had planned this trip back in early August. My little brother lives in the Chicago area and has been a muskie hunter for 20 years. He knows the Spider Lake Chain like the back of his hand. We made the drive up in about 7 hours. A friend of his has a cabin right on the water and we had the run of the place for a whole week.

What a great time we had! The colors of the Northwoods was spectacular!

I'd say 95% of the anglers up in Northern Wisconsin fish for muskies exclusively (all other fish are considered BAIT!). They're also the most friendly and helpful folks you'll ever meet.

I'm already making plans to return next year. I'm totally "hooked" on Muskellunges!! They are, by far, the most nasty and powerful fish I've ever caught!

...and also the most FUN!
