Default brookies....help!

Was gonna take the family (including in-laws) to my brookie hole on Saturday to get everyone into fish.......but the 4 x 4 road there is still closed. I need a good place to catch brooks that is within 1 to 1 1/2 hours from the front range between boulder and Ft Collins. Keep in mind that it has to be fairly close to vehicle access due to older non-hikers. PLEASE HELP! I don't want to end up at Brainerd lake or somewhere where there's only stockers! Beaver ponds or small lakes are best.

PM me if you would like to keep it hush. Thanks to all.

Don't fish for brookies a lot but the beaver ponds below Jefferson Lake are good. I've heard that Rocky Mountain National Park is a good place too. You have to make sure that certain streams have them though and not greenbacks, they kill the brookies before they put those in.

North Fork of the Big Thompson......the road off 43 is called dunraven glade I believe and the trails up there are just a couple hundred yards from the water. Take the first trail to the left (south) of the parking and walk up river. I don't know what the fishing is like lately or the water levels but the last time I was there two weeks ago it was great....bows and brookies all day. The water was pretty high and there were a lot of natural obstructions creating pools to hold fish and I was sight fishing.....make sure you have your staples in the smallest sizes you can find....it sucks to find something that they are hitting when the hook is too big for their little mouths.

Hey Nicod3mus......are you talking about hiking to the actual river or to beaver ponds on the river? Thank you.

Gross has been on my list.....but have never been there and didn't know how hiker friendly it was......plus there's no shade according to Google earth. Thanks for the posts......sorry on the fly.......if I loaded up everyone and went to Seeley's they'd shoot me.........they want scenic mountains. I'm not sure how I feel catching the big catfishes stocker dinner at Seeley's.......love the cats there and don't want to take their fattening food away.

Mill Creek in Rocky Mountain National Park is very good for brookies. The stream has good access at several locations. The entrance station can give you directions to Mill Creek. Good luck!

Most mountain streams have lots of brookies.
