If you like being frustrated fishing for tigers is a great way to do it. I've only hooked two, one broke my line and the other one I landed but it was small. Both times I was fishing for bass. One on a jerkbait and one on a tube. Very elusive fish.

Quincy used to have them when I lived on the front range over 10 years ago. Saw someone previously said they are all gone now, but certainly there are a few holdovers?? (unless they shocked the lake).

The last time I saw a Tiger it was at Gross Reservoir. Was not huge, probably only 24 inches long or so. I caught a small Tiger Muskie many years ago at a Bass Pond in Fort Collins. It was only about 12 inches long, and it surprised the heck out of me.

Gross is a tough nut to crack, but if you want close access and beautiful scenery you could always try there. I am pretty sure the CPW has stocked a decent number of them in there... Just good friggin luck finding the fish of 10,000 casts in that lake.

Default Evergreen Lake

Evergreen Lake has abundant Muskie, and, unfortunately, abundant forage. Like all Muskie fishing itís a matter of putting in the time. But, if you check with DOW they will point you there.
