Default Blue lake

My son and I are headed to Blue Lake / Adobe Creek Res. Friday for the weekend. We will be leaving from Fountain. What is the best way in to the lake? I thought I read something about coming from the north being a bit better. For now we are looking to go on 50 through Las Animas. We will be towing a boat and have a slide in camper, so the smoother the better.

i think highway 94 goes through ordway, and you can catch that and take it 50 miles east to sugar city, along all those abandoned rail cars. it's kind of creepy because alot of those towns are kind of abandoned... but i know that highway runs right by the lake.

BTW, id take 50 to las animas and john martin north 20 miles on the county road anyways, if youre even considering fishing.... keep in mind we are going to have shitty weather friday going into the evening, and given how march is in CO.. you might be driving in rain, or it might snow a foot out there... and i know as a trucker, they don't plow those rural roads much if it snows.... and you'll be fishing post frontal. just some food for thought, dude.

Thanks, I think I'll stick with 50 then. As for the weather I hope it doesn't get too sloppy out there. The pressure will be on the up swing but hopefully some fish cooperate. We will have a good time no matter what

Looks like the weather is supposed to stay more north according to the 9 news weather dart board...

That's all that matters. If it sucks too bad, hit up John Martin spillway and bag a walleye!

We used to take our camper there in April for Crappie and camp at the lake.
Haven't been there for years but used to produce well.
The problem with warm water fisheries is weather fronts can shut them down
15 miles north of Las animas on rd 10.
Good luck.

It's one lake I'm gonna start fishing a few times this season for sure. It'll be a great place to take the kid camping.

keep in mind that the dirt roads out there are clay and get slick as snot when wet, even 4WD might not help. I won't say how I know
