Default Az fisherman needs Colorado Help

So I'm an avid fisherman from AZ and im taking a short vacation to Colorado for some of your epic fishing. I'm flying into Colorado Springs and im working my way up to Arvada. I really want to catch some nice rainbows, at least one Brownie and some Northern Pike. Where should I go and what advice do you have? I really appreciate all advice. Thank you!

What's your definition of a nice rainbow?

Here is a great resource for finding water with certain species

first you need a good set of wheels
then you need ice fishing gear
nearest place for all you want is 11 mile res. 60 miles west

DallasdB I was hoping for some 2-3 pounders. We have rainbows here but there all small for the most part. Driving places is going to be a challenge because my rental is some sedan. Uncle was going to let me use he's jeep but it's broken and he's out of town. I don't mind driving though if I can get there.

I can't help you with 2-3 lbers. I only manage to catch stockers!

Are you fly fishing, using spinning gear or trying to ice fish?

If you want to catch some nice fish and don't have the time to learn the waters you should really hire a guide.

Randy Ford, "Fordo" on the forum, should be able to help you out.

a sedan is all you need to get to 11 mile. the dream stream between 11 mile and spinny is gold metal water, fly and lures only and catch and release only. it holds big trout, some bows and a few browns, 11mile has lots of pike and great trout fishing. 11 mile might be ice covered soon. the river below 11 mile has some fly and lure water and some anything goes water. mostly smaller trout but a few big ones. go on line and get the state fishing regs and read up on this area

and some significant winter driving experience and although you can do 11 mile in a car I'd far far far rather be in a suv or truck.
