Default Lake Depths?

I was wondering if anyone has any lake depth info sources for some of the small lakes around the Colorado Springs area. I've searched online for underwater contour maps of Colorado lakes and can only find info on larger bodies of water (not surprising). Does anyone know whether this information is available or not?

Since I am stuck casting from shore I thought about looking into one of these: https://buydeeper.com/

Any info would help!

Thanks!

Get a belly boat and you won't be stuck on shore. Look on CL and be patient. You can get one with flippers for $50.

I thought about getting something inflatable as a temporary means of getting out on the water. Do you know if they are durable? I looked into possibly getting a cheap intex raft so I could float with my brother.

I just checked my book. They list max depth which is helpful but I have yet to find a good resource for topo maps for bodies of water.

I had a small inflatable boat. It was fine and some guys make a wooden floor for them which makes them substantially more stable.

Personally I'd prefer a canoe or two man kayak if you want to fish with two people. But for the price you could both get belly boats and not be stuck right next to each other.

For countour maps of small lakes in the area, your best chance are looking at the social sharing map websites to see if anyone has mapped them in the past

Try either Navionics.com

Or the Insight Genesis website.

Wow what a great website! I am pretty surprised that there is data on Monument Lake. Do you know where they get their contributions? Thanks for sharing that with us!

Insight Genesis is a program hosted by Lowerance and uses contributions from their depth finders. It takes input from fisherman/boaters that are recording with their units and make contributions for purposes of mapping lakes.

Look into it, it really is great.
Navionics has the same thing.
